Martin Irvine (Author)


A handy, quick-reference, newcomers guide to getting on and navigating the Internet and the World Wide Web.

This brief guide offers a simple, conceptual introduction to the Internet and the World Wide Web. Focusing on the key underlying concepts behind Internet and the Web, rather than on the multitude of addresses, author Martin Irvine explains important Internet features and functions--how a network works, the client-server system, navigational software like Netscape, and authoring software for HTML--and provides practical advice on finding your way around the Internet and troubleshooting tips for solving problems.

With an easy-access, two-color design and a handy size, Web Works is an ideal pocket guide for any Internet or Web user. A Website, updated regularly by the author, provides web-searching exercises, useful addresses, links to other Web sites, and up-to-date information about new user software.
