The Domain Name Handbook is an enlightning introduction to the subject of the Domain Naming System's liberation from a single organisation to a world of domain name competition and a biting indictment of the current flip-flop on the important question of expanding the domain name space. Reading it one gets the impression that the authors weave humour and storytelling with the diligence and enthusiasm of inquisitive writers to discuss an otherwise highly technical subject. The work touches on all the issues that reverberate in the firmaments of political debates within ICANN and the domain name space community. The authors are definitely very well grounded in the history of the domain naming system and their familiarity with the sources are strengthened by insightful analysis of the psychology of the human beings who were selected by destiny to lead web surfers in their battle against typing bland numerical IP addresses into web browsers and instead enjoying easy to remember URLs. Regardless of how one may think about their views on alternate domain name registries or root zones and their struggles against Network Solutions, one cannot deny that the brother sister duo of Peter and Ellen Rony are definite contributors to the evergrowing literature on the web's historiography. Their book will remain here along with the companion website as a living testimony that they care very much about what happens to everyday netizens and did something about it by writing a powerful book.
