The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Using Usenet Newsgroups':
Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
This book has the usual background material on Usenet, the Internet and Usenet
news. Please note that many items bluntly presented as fact are opinion or, at
best, extreme oversimplification.
More than half of the chapters are devoted to the use of "client" newsreader
software for Windows and Mac (primarily WinVN and NewsWatcher). A single
chapter briefly mentions what it calls "text-based newsreaders", and this gives
only the most cursory coverage of trn, tin and nn.
The list of "hot" newsgroups is limited and not particularly enlightening.
