I just got a blurb from the Computer Literacy book store in San Jose
and they had a nice summary of Tracy LaQuey's book _The Internet 
Companion_.  It says:

  "Recommended for those fairly new to the world of computing, 
   including the workd of internetworking!  Introduction to the
   Internet without ultra-technical parlance.  Guides newcomers
   to the language, protocols, and etiquette of the Internet
   community.  Brief background on Internet evolution.  Tells 
   how to hook up to the Internet.  Useful notation on how to 
   send and receive email from other networks.  Covers file 
   transfer, remote login.  Also covers LISTSERV, USENET news 
   groups, online databases and services."

That sums it up pretty well.  Required reading for anyone new to email
or who wants to learn a few things about the Internet.  One of the hip
things about this Computer Literacy place is that you can email them at
info at -- pretty neat!  It doesn't say anything here about 
taking orders via email, but they do take orders via phone, fax and 
snail mail, in addition to walk-in business.

And it's cheap too!  Joe Bob Marconi says "check it out."
