Publisher Comments:

"RELENTLESSLY FUNNY . . . BARRY SHINES."

--People

A self-professed computer geek who actually does Windows 95, bestselling humorist Dave Barry takes us on a hilarious hard drive via the information superhighway--and into the very heart of cyberspace, asking the provocative question: If God had wanted us to be concise, why give us so many fonts?

Inside you'll find juicy bytes on

How to Buy and Set Up a Computer; Step One: Get Valium

Nerdstock in the Desert; Or: Bill Gates Is Elvis

Software: Making Your Computer Come Alive So It Can Attack You

Word Processing: How to Press an Enormous Number of Keys Without Ever Actually Writing Anything

Selected Web Sites, including Cursing in Swedish, Deformed Frog Pictures, and The Toilets of Melbourne, Australia

And much, much more!

"VERY FUNNY . . . After a day spent staring at a computer monitor, think of the book as a kind of screen saver for your brain."

--New York Times Book Review
