From the Foreword by Clifford Lynch:
"[This book] can be viewed as a user's manual of the Internet for the beginning
user. In a real sense, it's a survival guide. While the information contained
here is generally applicable, the examples are particularly oriented to the
interests of librarians and information professionals. There is also a great
deal here that will be helpful to people developing training seminars similar
to those for which the material here was first prepared."
