Aliza gives an overview of the book:

Aliza Sherman, a.k.a. Cybergrrl, has made it her mission to make more women comfortable with technology and active online. To that end, she's written a book for every woman who's ever considered connecting to the World Wide Web, even if her only experience with a computer is seeing one on somebody else's desk. Those with any computer experience at all will probably want to skip over elementary paragraphs here and there. But computer novices will appreciate that Sherman assumes almost no computer knowledge beyond the difference between a keyboard and a monitor. Better yet, she returns to the basics throughout the book so that readers who prefer to skip around to different topics can avoid confusion no matter where they start to read. (Amazon.com)
