THE INTERNET - THE ROUGH GUIDE. Angus Kennedy. Rough Guides pounds 6

A light-hearted and wide-ranging introduction to the sometimes daunting world of the internet. The tone of this handbook may jar after a while, but the author means well and is generous with helpful advice and encouragement. **

THE VIRGIN GUIDE TO THE INTERNET. Simon Collin. Virgin Publishing pounds 4.99

This crisp guide focuses on the essentials of internet use, and provides a useful listing of web sites. The detail is not as exhaustive as the Rough Guide's, which may be no bad thing. The text is businesslike and practical. And when it comes to covers, this one wins hands down. **

POCKET INTERNET. Sean Geer, Economist Books pounds 10.99

The one to leave on your desk to intimidate colleagues. This short book takes a drier, more analytical and historical approach to the internet, and includes a thorough glossary. It may not help you log on or get you surfing in seconds, but it explains the bigger picture well. **
