Review:
According to authors David Sachs and Henry Stair, effective Web sites are 1) visually appealing; 2) valuable, useful, or fun; 3) current and timely; 4) easy to find and use; 5) intuitive to navigate; 6) involving and responsive. They demonstrate their points by showcasing more than 100 Web sites and analyzing how they implement these key factors. The authors discuss many of the tradeoffs involved in Web design, showing how items must be prioritized depending on the site's purpose. The result is enlightening reading for anyone who owns or maintains a Web site of any type.

Review:
This book is documentation for NetCruiser, the set of access tools for use with the Netcom Internet Service Provider. Third party docs are usually nothing to write home about, particularly when the product is ISP specific. Peal, though, has done a very good job of integrating the actual use of the net in with directions on what buttons to push. His explanations are thorough and useful, and he adds helpful tips on topics from uuencoding to netiquette, as well as interesting historical tidbits. For the majority of Internet users who *don't* use Netcom, this book will be of little interest. For those who are signed up with Netcom, you have a very handy guide specially built for you. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1996

Review:
Ressler insists that this is not just another book about the World Wide Web. This assertion is true, but it is difficult to say what the book *is* about. There are smatterings of all kinds of stuff generally having to do with publication, printing, and publishing/printing technology. Most of these topics are covered in too little detail to be useful, although they might make interesting reading. Perhaps this would make a good introductory overview of publication technology. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1996
