Title: Netiquette
Author: Virginia Shea

ISBN: 0-9637025-1-3
Price: $19.95

This slim book does an excellent job of helping those new to Cyberspace 
learn the basic tenants of Netiquette - or "network etiquette." I can't 
imagine how much trouble and how many mumbled apologies would be averted 
if everyone read this book before posting that first message. Netiquette 
is easy to read and loaded with interesting real-life examples. Chapters 
cover the etiquette of e-mail and of discussion groups as well as 
providing excellent netiquette guidelines for business, home and school 
use. Particularly useful sections cover "electronic style" and the "core 
rules" of the online world. One chapter covers copyright issues and 
another the etiquette of e-mail privacy. There's even a tiny chapter on 
"Love & Sex in Cyberspace".

This book is filled with good advice for living you life online and off. 
Useful tidbits include: "Don't cheat on your spouse (and if you do, don't 
do it on company time)", "Don't CC: Steve Jobs on your analysis of the 
war in Bosnia" and the vague but truest rule, "Don't do stupid things." 
All very good advice. This book should be required reading for anyone 
collecting their Internet Learner's Permit. Highly recommended. You can 
retrieve a brief excerpt from Netiquette: "The Core Rules of Netiquette" 
by sending email to [email protected] with the words "archive 
send core" in the subject line.

connection for your personal, school or business needs, and how to get 
the best price for the type of access you require. Explains the 
differences between SLIP, PPP, ISDN, X.25 and other options. Includes an 
extensive list of Internet service providers. This is a single-purpose 
book, telling how to choose a connection and get online. It doesn't try 
to teach you how to use the 'net once you're there. That is graceful in 
its simplicity.

Notes: An instructional package for librarians teaching Internet basics. 
This book is useful for newcomers to the Internet. This book is useful 
for trainers.  This book is useful for librarians. Ultimately, this book 
is most useful for those training librarians who are new to the Internet. 
A newcomer to the Internet might find this material a bit disorganized, 
but very definitely helpful and useful. It is heartening to see the very 
strong emphasis on Internet etiquette and culture which all too often 
gets short shrift, even in introductory guides.  The grouping of 
discussion lists and electronic journals with email is a logical 
extension which is not always made. The work is not limited to the 
novice, though; many Internet users would find the fact sheets to be a 
handy quick reference.

Thanks for the info: Robert Slade <[email protected]>
Notes: A minimalist software package and manual for setting up a UUCP 
connection for mail and news. This title is almost completely misleading.  
This book is not for DOS users, except that you must be running DOS to 
run the MKS UUCP for DOS programs for which this book is a manual. This 
book is also not about the Internet, as such. Both the specifics and the 
concepts refer to UUCP rather than the Internet. The text of the book 
does point out that there are differences, but the examples given relate 
to UUCP. That said, for those who are interested in making their first 
move to a direct Internet connection, this could be an excellent choice. 
UUCP was designed to be quite comfortable with dialup connections, and 
this book and associated programs, help to automate a number of the 
connection functions while freeing the user from much of the technical 
detail that TCP/IP requires.

Title: The Internet Companion, A Beginner's Guide To Global Networking

Price: $10.95
Pages: 196
Published: 1993
For more information: [email protected]
Thanks for the info: Robert Slade <[email protected]>
Notes: The Companion includes a detailed history of the Internet, a 
discussion on "netiquette" (network etiquette), and how to find resources 
on the net. It is difficult to know what is supposed to be 
"companionable" about this volume. Physically, it would be easy to carry 
it along with you. You probably wouldn't want to, though.  This is not a 
guide for explorations, either.  It does give one some background on the 
Internet, but it is not in a step-by-step fashion.  (How to access the 
Internet is the *last* topic to be covered.)  The newcomer to the 
Internet will more likely want to read it all (possibly at one sitting; 
it's small enough) and look at the network gestalt. This work is somewhat 
less technical than the UNIX biased "Whole Internet Guide". However, it 
goes too far in the opposite direction.  The authors boast that it was 
finished in less than two months. It shows. Companies which are getting 
into the Internet in a big way might make this the introductory volume 
for new users: it is generally upbeat and non-threatening. However, help 
should be on hand when people actually start using the net.

style intended to set novices at ease. At over 350 pages, there is much 
information and the book is well indexed. For those who have a direct 
connection, i.e. SLIP or PPP.

Title: Internet: Getting Started

ISBN: 0-13-327933-2
Price: $28.00
Pages: 360
Published: 1993
For more information: (515) 284-6751
Notes: Explains how to join the Internet, the various types of Internet 
access, and procedures for obtaining a unique IP address and domain name. 
An extensive list of Internet access providers of all types is provided, 
including access outside of the United States. The guide explains many 
concepts essential to the Internet, such as the Domain Name System, IP 
addressing, protocols, and electronic mail. Doesn't tell you how to use 
the 'net, just how to get connected.

Title: The Internet Guide for New Users
Author: Daniel P Dern
Publisher: McGraw-Hill
ISBN: Paperback 0-07-016511, Hardcover 0-07-016510-6
Price: Paperback $27.95, Hardcover $40.00

Notes: A very complete introduction to the world of the Internet. Along 
with the obligatory topics such as telnet, FTP and Archie, the book 
suggests how to get an Internet account and teaches enough UNIX to 
survive on the net. This book is more complete and in-depth than many 
other Internet books: Dern's deep knowledge of all things Internet shines 
through, although sometimes the book is a bit too formal. The book, like 
Dern, is laced with dry humor and is UNIX-centric. Highly recommended.

Title: Internet Instant Reference

Notes: This book is part quick reference, part lexicon and part Internet 
tutorial. Arranged in dictionary format, it defines Internet jargon (like 
shareware and hypertext) gives brief descriptions of tools (like Knowbot 
and Listserv), includes short command summaries for using popular 
programs (like FTP, emacs and elm), and describes various 'net 
organizations, policies and legislature. Nice design and layout. This 
book contains a wide variety of information, but is sort of unevenly 
edited and contains some factual errors that might not be clear to 
newbies (for instance, in one section it confuses the terms upload and 
download.)

Notes: Covers everything from net etiquette to supercomputers; very 
comprehensive. This work is a fairly bare bones and no nonsense guide to 
the Internet. The book is orderly, and the explanations and illustrations 
are clear.  Each chapter covers a single topic and ends with additional 
references, most often online materials or sources. The work is well 
researched and highly competent in most cases. There is, in the early 
chapters, a gracelessness to it which lacks any kind of appeal. 
Nevertheless, it is a thoroughly researched and valuable reference for 
those interested in using the resources of the Internet. It costs $39.95 
but schools and not-for-profit organizations can buy it for $19.95 plus 
shipping.

Notes: Graham Rodgers says: "64-page guide to Internet basics. Very easy 
to follow instructions, clearly set out. With the small size not 
everything can be included but the price represents good value. The paper 
cover deteriorates with use." I say: A whole lot of information for the 
money. Well-presented, simple and above all, short. Covers "What is the 
Internet?", terms, UNIX basics, e-mail, Usenet, FTP, rlogin and telnet, 
finger, archie, gopher and veronica. Easy-to-follow examples. They'll 
sell you just one, but the book is primarily intended to be sold to 
service providers and distributed to their users.

Notes: David M. Stevenson says, "This book is written by someone who is 
concerned that the reader get a good grasp of the Internet system 
quickly. In my case he succeeded; and what he can do for me, he can do 
for you!" I say: This book is a winner. It explains the basics of the 
Internet in a clear and concise style. Covers the tools for reading 
Usenet news, doing e-mail, using FTP, gopher and WorldWideWeb. Doesn't 
get into the newer, funkier tools too much. It's an easy read and doesn't 
get bogged down in esoteric, dull stuff. I even like the cover.

Notes: Essays by people involved with the Internet. Strong on protocols, 
weak on direction. The book is divided into four parts. The first section 
deals with an historical and organizational background to the Internet. 
The second section, written by the people who built the Internet, deals 
with technical aspects of the major protocols and applications of the 
Internet. Part three, "Infrastructure," covers issues not centrally 
relevant to the operation of the Internet, but supporting its use: 
network performance and management, backbone and node tools, directory 
services and operational security. The bibliographic information 
contained in the book overall might be worth the price alone. 
Quarterman's contribution is carefully and fully researched and well 
organized. It includes not only texts, but periodicals and online sources 
as well.

Notes: This book is a huge tome, weighing in with 62 chapters plus 7 
appendices. It is co-written by a zillion authors, and falls in the 
"everything you could possibly ever want to know about the Internet" 
category, with blanket coverage of accessing the 'net from different 
types of home computers, networks and with high-speed connections. This 
book covers just about every Internet topic you can think of, from 
security to MUDs, from doing business on the 'net to copyright issues and 
problems. [The complete table of contents appears later in this document

Notes: A thick book listing about 100,000 e-mail addresses. (Although 
that may seem like a lot, it's not very comprehensive.) Addresses are 
listed by last name and are also indexed by Internet domain name. This 
book may be useful for finding associates' e-mail addresses, but is 
probably no more useful than using one of the many 'net-based e-mail-
address search utilities. The book is unevenly edited (I'm in there three 
times!) and was woefully out of date before the ink was dry.

includes a disk with Internet Software for Microsoft Windows and a few 
extra chapters: "A Better Window on the Web: Mosaic", "Using the Internet 
for Business", as well as versions of the online references Gopher Jewels

the vanilla Navigating the Internet, especially if you use Windows and

Notes: This slim book does an exellent job of helping those new to 
Cyberspace learn the basic tenants of network etiquette, or "netiquette". 
It's easy to read and loaded with intersting real-life examples. Chapters 
cover netiquette of e-mail and of discussion groups as well as providing 
excellent netiquette guidelines for business, home and school use. 
Particularly useful sections cover Electronic Style (looking good online, 
tone of voice and signature files) and the "core rules" of the online 
world. One chapter covers copyright issues and another the etiquette of 
e-mail privacy. There's even a tiny chapter on "Love & Sex in 
Cyberspace". This book should be required reading for anyone collecting 
their Internet Learner's Permit. (You can retrieve a brief excerpt from 
Netiquette: "The Core Rules of Netiquette" by sending email to 
[email protected] with the words "archive send core" in the

this one looks and acts the most like a "real" telephone book: personal 
listings of your name and e-mail address are free, advertising space in 
the yellow pages section is available for a fee, and the book itself it 
distributed for free. With only a few thousand names in the first

of this guide is devoted to the Internet. Netpower includes a primer and 
tutorial on using the network, information on getting started and 
navigating with Internet tools, and hundreds of Internet accessible

Notes: This book (with floppy disk) for MS-DOS users helps newcomers get 
online and take their first steps on the 'net. Fraase first wrote the Mac 
Internet Tour Guide, and this book seems more like an afterthought than a 
follow-up. Chapters cover obligatory topics like What is the Internet, 
Getting Connected, Network News, Transferring Files, Using Gopher and 
Other Internet Resources. The book's organization leaves something to be 
desired: talk of telnet, FAQs and Netfind (hardly unimpoirtant topics) 
are lumped together in the "Other Resources" chapter near the back of the 
book. The book includes some interesting real-life examples and ideas for 
things to do online, but too much (for my taste) focuses on how to set up 
and use the bundled software.

Notes: Fisher shows admirable restraint in limiting the scope of this 
book. Where others try to produce "complete" documentation for the 
"whole" Internet, Fisher flatly states (correctly) that this is 
impossible. Where others try to take you "from the modem up," Fisher 
suggests you get some basic experience with local bulletin boards. The 
intent is to give desktop (PC and Mac) users some basic grounding in 
Internet functions and tools. As such, the book is much less imposing 
than most of the others of this ilk. (Cheaper, too.) For the majority of 
new users, however, this is a good, basic introduction. What shortcomings 
there are in specific information can be quickly filled in once a user 
has gotten onto the net. The very personal style here probably more than 
makes up for any other lacks--the Internet is primarily other people, not 
technologies.

mail moves around on the Internet. Mainly for system administrators, the 
book shows how to use every function, mode and mood of sendmail to get 
your e-mail where it's going. A great, if single-minded, book.

Notes: This guide should give you a reference to consult if you're 
curious about what can be done with the Internet. It also presents the 
fundamental topics that are all too often assumed and considered trivial 
by many network users. It covers the basic utilities and information 
reaching other networks. An earlier, much less comprehensive version is 
available via FTP; see previous section. Matisse Enzer says: Very 
friendly general overview book. Not really a how-to book, rather a 
Cultural Companion that explain what each type of Internet resource is, 
as well as the cultural and traditional uses and issues. Includes a 
chapter on "Things you will hear about..." this chapter explains many 
famous (and infamous) Internet events and entities.

Title: !%@:: A Directory of Electronic Mail Addressing and Networks

Notes: This book is a reference work. It details the various computer 
networks with gateways to the Internet. It is common to cite such works 
as "indispensable": in fact, most users, and even site managers, muddle 
along quite happily without it. Quick reference "electronic" versions 
exist of very similar documents, which provide the addressing schemes for 
the more common network and commercial service gateways. Frey and Adams 
have, however, put together a very complete and interesting reference, 
and I do suggest it to anyone managing, or using, extensive email 
correspondence. As a user of electronic mail, or the manager of a small 
Internet node or UUCP site, it would be hard to say that you "need" this 
book. If, however, you are at all interested in the topic of email, you 
will find this fascinating and useful.
