There is something reassuringly soothing about this book. While its subject is commercial websites, the layout of the book adheres to the decades-old telephone Yellow Pages. The ordering is alphabetic by subject, and within each subject, alphabetic by company. And there is aparagraph on each company, supplied by it. The book might be aimed at an older audience, that did not grow up with the Web. A question I have concerns the use of Yellow Pages. In the early 90s, Sun has a software product for its networked computers, called Yellow Pages. Quite successful. Then British Telecom pointed out that they owned the trademark. So Sun changed the product name. Yet in this book, there seems to be no acknowledgment of Yellow Pages as a trademark.
