Creating Home Network download - is it worth $14.95?

By HarryG ·
I received an email this morning from Tech Republic advertising a downloadable book titled "Creating and Configuring Home Networks" which, since I provide PC support for residential customers, sounds like it could be valuable. But when I clicked on the Learn More link, I noticed immediately that the publication date is 2004. Two other interesting-sounding resources, "Troubleshooting Home Networks" and "Securing Home Networks" also sound interesting, but both of them were also published in 2004.

I am concerned that some/much of the information in these documents might be outdated (especially the "Securing..." book). Has anyone downloaded and read any of the above references, and if so, are they, in your opinion, worth the cost? If not, do you have any suggestions about other references specifically regarding Home Networks, setting up, troubleshooting, and securing? Thanks in advance.
