I discovered one or two interesting things I didn't know about the Internet from this book. The authors know their stuff, and the book is well organized and easy to read.

Read it page by page, underline the marvelous tips, take some notes for reference when the book is finished and then...go back to the computer, align your hand and mind. Now didn't you learn a bunch of things from the Gurus this time? I did! Thanks y'all. Good writing!
