Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online
Copyright © 1994, 1996 by Kevin Savetz
This site contains full text of my book, Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online. This book was released by Sams Publishing in 1994 and is now out of print. Since it has not been updated since 1994, some parts of it are obsolete (for instance, it barely mentions the Web.) Other parts have held true.
I've put the book on the Web in its entirety, where it could possibly help some people, or just languish as an obsolete relic of an earlier Internet.
You may be able to buy a pre-owned, printed copy of the book from amazon.com.
