Lots of information April 5, 2011
This textbook is an overview of how computers are used in society, business, personal use etc. Lots of detail and discussion of related themes associated with the various chapters. Extra detail at end of each chapter that goes into depth, links are given to help with additional research of the topics. The web site associated with the book is quite interactive and helps with absorbing the information. None of the chapters go into intense depth but are simply an introduction for a first semester college student, lots of information though. If you read the entire textbook you will have a high level grasp of the use of computers.
