The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Internet Roadside Attractions: Sites, Sounds & Scenes Along the Information Superhighway':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
This is, as the name suggests, a miscellany of information, resources and trivia accessible over the Internet. The number of entries is less than the size of the book would suggest, since many items appear more than once, in different topic sections. The material is thus very far from being complete, while certain areas contain items that are only very loosely related. (Travel, for example, has entries on history and government resources.) The "multiple listings" are a good idea, since neither the table of contents nor the index may help, at times. (The Internet Coffee Machine, for example, is not listed in the index, nor does it appear under "Food and Drink", although an image from it does. The actual entry is listed under "Cyberculture".) All are "reviewed" at some point in the book. These comments are generally only a short paragraph, but are worth looking at. The multiple listings point to the one review. (Project Gutenberg actually gets two separate reviews: the later one does point to the earlier.) The entries are mostly standardized on URLs (Universal Resource Locators). There is an explanation at the beginning of the book, and an explanatory "Unraveling the URL" sidebar which recurs throughout the book. The emphasis is on World Wide Web and Gopher entries: others are not given unless there is no WWW or Gopher pointer. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1995
