1. Which Books

Here is a list of books related to using the Internet, which is the

global and exponentially growing network of more than a million

computers that communicate by interactive use of the TCP/IP

protocols, for the use of millions of users. This article was

prompted by the recent publication of nine or ten books on the

Internet in the space of a year (some are so new they aren't even

published yet). I have also included some books that have been

around for quite a long time (as long ago as the dim past of 1984).

I think all of them contain useful information for people new to the

Internet.

Some of the books included here are about more than the Internet.

Some of them are about the Matrix, which is the set of all computer

networks worldwide that exchange electronic mail. The Matrix

includes FidoNet, UUCP, BITNET, USENET, the Internet, and many

others, but is not limited to any one of those networks. This

particular bibliographic collection is oriented around the largest

computer network in the world, the Internet, because of all the

recent books about that network. Matrix News continues to publish

information about the Matrix, including but not limited to the

Internet.
