About this Book


The Internet Companion:
A Beginner's Guide to Global Networking (2nd edition)

by Tracy LaQuey (Addison-Wesley, 1994)

The Internet Companion has been a leading beginner's title since its original publication date in 1992. It has succeeded because it is nontechnical, easy-to-understand, and enlivened by anecdotes, while containing all the solid information one needs to know to begin an Internet journey.

As the Internet audience has increased, so too has the need for this book increased. With the second edition, LaQuey has updated the book to cover many of the new areas about the Internet, such as commercialization, and the increasingly sophisticated mulitmedia browser tools. The expanded Appendix includes many more Internet resources--with URLs (Uniform Resource Locators or Internet addresses for each).

The first general trade book about the Internet as well as the first title released online on the Internet at the OBS in 1992, The Internet Companion has been read by hundreds of thousands of people in one or more of its many incarnations. It has been published as:

First Edition:

Second Edition:

Special Online Edition:

International Editions:

As with all of our distributive publications, we welcome your comments and suggestions, and anticipate seeing this project continue to grow and evolve along with the Internet.
