The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'The Irc Survival Guide: Talk to the World With Internet Relay Chat':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
I must admit that I agree with those who see IRC (Internet Relay Chat) as a profound waste of time. Yes, a dozen years ago, I conducted an international conference via CompuServe's CB Simulator, and I figured that there was potential in real-time chat. But that was a far cry from the anarchic noise that goes on in pretty much every IRC channel. So, why am I going to keep Harris' book? Because it's the most realistic, balanced, complete, and positively helpful book I've read on the application to date. Harris gives some background, netiquette tips, time savers, self defense, a glossary, a list of client software, and a list of servers. Mostly, though, he provides a list of commands--and commands, and more commands, and options for the commands. As he admits, up front, not all commands are available on all IRC clients. (Appendix A gives some detail on where you are likely to find, and not find, specific commands.) It's *almost* enough to convince me to give it another shot. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1997
