"Don't be put off by the passé-sounding title, reminiscent of the breathlessly teenage days of the Internet. This is a sensible guide by an author who knows her stuff, and you’re likely to pick up tips for new ways to use the net even if you’ve been exploiting it efficiently for years. Weaver, a librarian, journalism trainer and columnist, gives lots of sensible general advice and specific strategies for academics, librarians, students and journalists."

Some satisfied readers have said:

"Last night my daughter was struggling with an assignment on Government and I gave her your book - it was fantastic. There was information that she could use directly out of the book and she could go to the websites suggested and find what she needed immediately! Every student needs this book. I will email my son's Special Ed teacher and tell her about it. Essential in everyone's home!!!!"

"Your book is fantastic and just might change my life!"
