In the rapidly evolving world of Web pages, why, you might ask, would anyone want a printed yellow pages guide to the Internet? In the 1999 edition of Harley Hahn's Internet & Web Yellow Pages, Hahn proves once again that a little human intelligence (and a lot of wit) are just as important as a comprehensive and up-to-the-minute search engine. In fact, while Hahn leaves out the URLs of many of the most famous e-commerce sites, you wouldn't come here looking for them anyway. The fake ads and fascinating listings, many of which respond to topics discussed in earlier editions, are designed to surface the unexpected, fun, and disturbing sides of the Net that are being slowly buried under the cacophony of glittering special effects and push technology. The Star Trek section, for example, runs for six pages and includes a Web site with Trek drinking games and a fan response to Hahn's rhetorical question: "What I want to know is, what is the Klingon for 'Get a life'?" (it's yIn'e' yISuq, if you're interested). The CD-ROM is a perfect addition to this Yellow Pages since you can search for any of the topics that are mentioned in the print book and then click through the hot-linked URLs. --Patrick O'KelleyFrom the Back Cover:
