4starts from scratch
By W Boudville
Miller gives a nice, very lightly technical guide to effective online shopping. To someone like you, maybe, who has never bought online, it can seem like a forbidding new world. So what Miller does is step through the fundamentals. Starting with a chapter giving a general guide to what you can expect at many online websites. One key thing you should realise is that the payment by credit card is really no different from traditional real world usage. Nor, despite everything you might read about online fraud, is it any riskier. But he does also go into describing those frauds.

He also gives brief but effective coverage of major online sites. Like Amazon and eBay. On the subject of using eBay, you can find entire books devoted to this. Miller's is more succinct, and is more than adequate to get you started on eBay, if you so desire.

The second half of the book is an appendix of useful websites, grouped by their main interests. A little mundane to experienced surfers. But perhaps not to you.
