+ What's a "Multimedia Lite" version?

That means that we've eliminated the video components to bring down the file size for quick downloading. However, we've left in audio-feedback self-tests, pop-up graphics and footnotes, hyperlinks to related Web sites and roll-over navigation buttons, so you'll still have a lot of interactive fun!

+ Do you have to be a rocket scientist to use an ElectrondPond eBook?

Nope. We go to all sorts of extremes here at ElectronPond to make sure that every "It's Not Rocket Science" TM eBook is user-friendly.

+ What if I'm technically challenged?

When you first open one of our eBooks, there's a big red button (hard to miss) that you can push if you're an eBook first timer. We then escort you through the necessary pages to help you use the eBook.

+ What if I have the attention span of a four-year old?

We also provide a delightfully superficial "Big Picture in Four Hours" page with its own navigation buttons in case you want to spend an afternoon becoming familiar with an overview of all the topics before diving into our "Drill-Down" sections and Web links for more depth.

+ But I'm not a lawyer . . .

We're not afraid to tackle complicated legal, business and technical subjects, and we strive to make those topics entertaining and human-readable. The material in the Cyberspace Law series has been used by Professor Severy in her online MBA courses since 1998 with great success. So you should be able to understand the eBook even if you're not a lawyer. We think that those who are not "JD-impaired" should have a shot at learning this stuff, too. After all . . . It's Not Rocket Science!

+ What if I want more information on this subject?

Electronpond in collaboration with Netprof - Digital Training will be presenting a series of online courses on Cyberspace Law and business planning for individual entrepreneurs and for corporate training programs. Links to our site with information about the courses are provided in the eBook.
