1.0 out of 5 stars Free INFORMATION, not free STUFF. April 5 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book's title is deceiving. It does not help you find samples or items. Instead, it's written to help an internet newbie find information about gardening. It's loaded with URLs of websites to help you in your gardening adventures, but it does not offer free STUFF, like the title implies. It only offers free information. And it does NOT help you find anything you couldn't find by yourself. By buying the book, it negates the claim of anything being free... you have to pay for the information to find more information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spend Your Time Gardening Sept. 19 2000
Format:Paperback
I would rather browse this book in my garden than ricochet around the internet searching for the good sites. I like the numerous illustrations and I like the way the index gets me right to what I need. I recommend it to any gardener, even if they use the computer at the public library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Book Sept. 18 2000
Format:Paperback
Free Stuff for Gardeners on the Internet is a fabulous book! I routinely use various search engines, and this book pointed me to numerous sites full of useful information that I would never have found by merely using the results of those searches.
The format of the book is straightforward with many snapshots of computer screens to give you an idea of what the site is actually like. Also, there are many generalized tips such as rules for mailing lists and how to maximize the performance of audio and video files that I found helpful.
The Internet is a daunting world, and a good jungle guide is invaluable. Free Stuff for Gardeners is just such a guide.
I will strongly recommend this book to my friends and Garden Club members and intend to look at the other books in the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Publishing date May 2 2008
By Darcy D. Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I really should have checked the publishing date before I bought this--it is now 8 years old and all of the URLs I have checked so far have been defunct. I also thought it was going to be free things and not just information.
