Internet makes many great things, but an alarming number of them are still “black boxes” whose interior that is a mystery. In how the Internet works , Preston Gralla shows how information gets from here to there in the world’s largest computer network. With assistance from illustrators Sarah Ishidi, Mina Reimer, and Stephen Adams, Gralla presents a series of four-color spreads, each of which picks apart some aspect of Internet technology. You can find explanations of Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), Web browser, e-mail, Web search engines, multimedia and much more. There is a spread that shows how bulk e-transmitters (known as spammers) extract addresses from newsgroups and send advertisements to them. There is also an excellent graphic depiction of how the infamous Melissa trojan raged among Microsoft Outlook users in early 1999.

Some of the explanations are weaker than others. While Gralla gives a lot of information about how Internet telephony works, is his explanation of PointCast of, to paraphrase: “You install special software that communicates with the dedicated server software and presents news to you.” It is more a definition than an explanation. The book is divided roughly evenly between simple definition entries and detailed, commendable how-it-works entries. There is no glossary per se, but the index is good. – David Wall Fri Topics covered : Internet architecture, addressing, domain names, routers, connections, e-mail, newsgroups, Web browsers, push technologies, and Internet security and security.\r how the Internet works (8th Edition)
