Going on-line with your micro. (book reviews) Brian J. Murphy.

Lou Haas's Going On-Line With Your Micro (TAB Books 248 pp. $12.50) is of interest if you don't want to be bogged down with a lot of material on starting up a system, but want to get right to calling up some BBS systems and info utilities.

A very large section of the book (pages 30 to 69) is devoted to listings of local BBS names and numbers. Another large section deals with how you talk to a BBS once you have it on line.

Haas includes the usual material on hardware and software, which is clearly written, if not comprehensive. The best things about this book are that it is fun to read and it approaches the topic from a novel direction.
