It is now impossible to turn on the TV or read a magazine without seeing an e-mail or Web page address. If these strings.of. letters.with.dots.for. spaces appear as strange, cryptic messages to you, the authors will help you decipher the code to unlock a whole new universe of information, and show you how to take advantage of the most significant technical and social phenomenon of this decade. Picking up where Homeschool Guide to the Online World (the first book) left off, the Dinsmores take info-seekers to the next stage of the online experience. Now that everyone is on the Web (or so it seems), this guide is a roadmap into "deep" cyberspace, exploring E-mail and Mailing Lists, Gopher, FTP, Usenet, and of course, more new exciting places to visit on the World Wide Web.

There is so much to learn and discover about cyberspace that one can easily become overwhelmed, so rather than inundate readers with everything in one giant "online encyclopedia", the authors have split the world into two hemispheres.

"Virtually" nothing is repeated in this intermediate-level sequel. With easy-to-read explanations and resources in this book families will soon be "hanging ten"on keyboards around the country. Cowa Bunga!
