Paul Gilster's Digital Literacy teaches the reader how to separate all that we know about surfing the web from what we can learn from creating a site or page for others to surf through. his "internet survival skills" teach users that are new to the internet how exactly they can use it intelligently, and how to make it personal and "professionally meaningful".  The internet has taken over the lives of most Americans, especially the younger generations. Digital Literacy isn't as book that teaches you how to get around the internet -- at this point, that's common knowledge. Digital Literacy teaches you how to use the internet in a way that will get you the best experience. He goes through media, content, and form, and how form is separate from content, and more.  It's a book that teaches you to evaluate the internet, to ask questions most people wouldn't ask if they were just leisurely spending time on the web. In fact, maybe even I wouldn't these questions during my sessions surfing the internet, but now I know that it's possible to do more with the web than I thought possible.
