Product Description

From Amazon

Rula Razek compiled the Internet Cool Guide for the sort of person who likes to read The New York Times on Sunday. That kind of person--well educated, with a fair bit of discretionary income and diverse interests--will dig this directory's references to some of the best-maintained sites on the Web.

Capsule reviews can only say so much in 100 words or less, but it's likely you'll find a new site that will help you improve your health, make wise money decisions, and engage your interests. Scan the handful of pages about online privacy and search strategies, and then dive into the hundreds of pages of listings.

Internet Cool Guide is printed in full color. It's an unusual design choice that makes this book fun to look at, though you may find its stylish blue-on-white print a bit hard to read. A few errors clutter some Web addresses--a problem endemic to this kind of book--and the reviews rarely have anything critical to say (bad sites were just left out, apparently). It's a fine little book to give as a gift or to keep in the back of your desk drawer for midday Web meanderings. --David Wall

Topics covered: Interesting Web sites, particularly those that have to do with personal issues such as entertainment, fashion, health, investing, shopping, and hobbies.

Top-Notch selection, Great layout! Nov. 19 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I was so pleased with this great looking guide that I will be giving it to all my friends for the holidays. It is also very usuful to beginners with the introductory chapters in the front. The short, but significant remarks for each site come right to the point; wasting no time.

Internet Cool Guide is an Insightful, Critical, Great read Nov. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I spend a lot of time online, and trying to find decent Web pages with a search engine is a shot in the dark. This book is great because it does all the work for you--it's so much easier to look in the index for a good banking site than to use Yahoo!. And it shows stuff on the Web you didn't even know was there to look for in the first place. I'm getting this for everyone for Christmas!

Internet Guide actually is pretty cool Nov. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This beats the pants off of those Yellow Pages-style Web directories that don't quality check their listings. Every one of these sites is really great.

directed me to many great sites Nov. 12 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I got this book as a gift and I have used it alot to surf sites that I didnt know existed and I'm not sure how I could have found them otherwise. The Internet Cool Guide has directed me to many great sites and I enjoy the shameless reviews! This book would make a great gift for the uninitiated as well as the more experienced surfers. Explains everything in plain english, no-nonsense language.

Helpful, Clever, Fun Nov. 17 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great guide for anyone, no matter how internet savvy you are (or aren't). Very easy to find exactly what kinds of sites you're looking for, with clever, smart summaries. Also gives lots of helpful hints for navigating the internet in general.
