    A bit of a dated book I understand how it would have been helpful even just a few years ago The incredible growth of online resources and access to the Internet has made some of this information commonly known Useful for an older generation or perhaps for someone looking to make out of their online activities today but my particular background in Information Technology work made this somewhat elementary to me

    Pretty decent if you’re somehow new to the internet although I highly doubt anyone reading this review would beBut other than the great amount of online resources for research purposes Chapter Six it’s really not worth the read for anyone who’s been using the internet for the past couple years

    uite a bit of good information however based on the title I thought it would be for the advanced researcher The first part of the book was pretty elementary and that was a disappointment However I was able to get uite a bit from the later part of the book

    Now that I have my computer back it will be interesting to try some of her ideas However the book was written in 2007 so much has probably changed

    This may be a good book for a person doing general research on the Internet It does not offer that much that is helpful to someone doing academic work
