If you are thinking about making the move to Internet telephony this book will provide you with sufficient background information to determine if it would be useful for your needs as well as how to shop intelligently for the appropriate product. Although the information also applies to small businesses this book is aimed squarely at the home market.

Written in a very non-technical style Talk is Cheap is easy to read and understand and suggested for anyone interested in learning about the subject.


"Using your internet connection (DSL or cable), you can switch to internet telephony, also known as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and go all digital.  Gaskin does an excellent job in explaining exactly what this is, how it works, and the pros and cons of switching to a service like this... if you're an early adopter of technology, this is definitely an area you need to check out.  And if you have no exposure to residential VoIP up until now, I'd recommend a copy of this book to get you up to speed quickly."
