    I found this useful for realizing all of the things about computers and the internet that I take for granted, and which might be unknown and overwhelming to new users.

    It was a decent enough book, but I had to give up on it because technology moved faster than the information in the book. So, it was left unread for so long because technology left us in the dust. But, I have been learning to keep up with info from the web. The book, due to its age, is now in the recycling bin. I do give the author is big thumbs up for writing a book to help the technologically challenged!
