This title works on the premise that most people, once the first enthusiasm has worn off, don't particularly enjoy surfing, because it's expensive, slow, they don't know what to look for, haven't got the time or simply have no recommended starting-point. The book is effectively a list with a few words saying why each site is recommended. It assumes basic knowledge, but does not contain information on how to use the net. The sites are general but chosen for their skill in linking with other more specific sites. It recommends, for example, a general football site where you can move to specific teams. This is an easy to use A-Z of net subjects. Yahoo, BBC, WHS and other major "hub" sites have a page of their own. The "best" is judged in terms of content, ease of use, value for money and service. The layout is customer intuitive: easily readable typeface, (interestingly one of the biggest home users of the net are retired people); accessible; and does not attempt to be too clever or include wacky or weird sites. In this, the third edition, we include recommendations from readers of the 2002.
