Review:
Although large chunks of this book are simply versions of product documentation, there are many sections of good, thoughtful, useful advice as well. Chapter one is a good introduction and a breakdown of the mail system into the mail user agent (MUA, called "front end" in the book) and the mail transport agent (MTA). Later parts of the chapter may become too technical in discussions of wide area networks, to no purpose. Chapters two and three give a very good overview of email use and evaluation. The material is broad- ranging and generally excellent, with the notable exception of deficiencies in the coverage of security and file attachments. Chapters four through seven document uses and commands for cc:Mail, MS-Mail, Novell Groupwis... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
Here's everything you need to know to communicate effectively through e-mail. Most of us discover through painful experience what works and what doesn't with e-mail communication. Part of the education is learning the culture of the Net, and part is adjusting our regular writing styles to the screen. Although this book's nuts and bolts are about UNIX e-mail programs and commands, the majority is devoted to style and would be helpful to anyone. There's also a terrific chapter on mailing lists if you really like a lot of e-mail.

Review:
A handbook tends to indicate either small size, or a compendium of reference information. This book is neither small nor a particularly good reference, but it is quite complete. The introduction to data communications given in chapter one is quite technical, and generic. Chapter two, although ostensibly about modem speeds, is probably of interest only to engineering students. I'm not sure why it was divided from chapter three, on modulation techniques. The material starts to become slightly less technical, and possibly of more use to the modem installing reader at this point. Certainly chapter four, dealing with data communications, and particularly modem, protocol standards is a very useful reference in choosing a modem. Chapter fi...

Review:
I suppose I should have been warned by the fact that the title of the book uses the dread "Information Superhighway" cliche. The introduction implies that this text is aimed at a general audience, so one assumes that the authors think they are going to be educating the public in regard to modern telecommunications. However, it is obvious that they have only skimmed the surface of what is available. The first chapter starts out with a quote from one Charles Duell, Commissioner of the US Office of Patents in 1899, urging that the office be abolished since "[e]verything that can be invented, has been invented." I imagine that this quote, and those that begin the other chapters, were taken from a list that has circulated widely on the Inte... Rest of this review on the detail page
