Book News Annotation:

Offers easy-to-read information in a colorful, non-threatening layout, for readers at all levels of computer expertise. Unlike most computer books, this book can be read and understood without sitting in front of the computer, and exercises do not contain page after page of screen shots and bulleted lists of instructions. Part I covers purchasing a computer and signing onto the Internet, and Part II explains how to get started with Windows 98 and how to explore the Internet. Part III explains word processing, spreadsheets, and databases, and Part IV covers security and upgrades. Levin hosts a radio show on computers on CBS Radio.
