Abstract
Internet can be intimidating with all its hodgepodge of files, commands, and messages. Shouldn't we expect a book on Internet to organize some of this chaos logically? Badgett and Sandler seem to think that simulating the Internet experience on paper is the way to go; for a beginner, it doesn't make a lot of sense. In the first chapter, they log you onto the WELL, then take you to UUNET for seven pages while the meter's running at 50? a minute. It's not until Chapter 2 that they explain how a modem works! In the Chapter 6, they go on at length about the files that you can collect in your Internet explorations; why not warn everyone that just a few of these files might chew up every possible byte of space on your hard disk? Pass this one by!
