    A terrific guide, but then, again, I'm biased

    This is a great way to find the leading sites in a whole variety of areas. It is the only current, annotated guide to the Jewish Internet. The book is kept up to date with a password protected online website that has the entire contents of the book, so it's searchable. There's a public portion of the website that's open to anyone and has material that was added after the book was published.The book actually covers 1500 sites, not the 500 mentioned in the Barnes and Noble blurb.
