    Ingeniously Wyatt has created two books in one: the main text covers the types of software package available: mainstream software, peripheral software, innovative software, frontier software; the lessons generated from the software are outlined in lesson boxes. Readers can use the text alone to familiarize themselves with the computer packages or read the boxes only, or they can do both.

    Introduction. Silicon and Carbon. Mainstream Software. Peripheral Software. Innovative Software. Frontier Software Case 1: Cyberquest. Frontier Software Case 2: Strad. Frontier Software Case 3: Expert Choice. Frontier Software Case 4: Stategizer. A United Frontier? Conclusions.
