Harley Hahn's excellent Web directory may be the only one with an introduction that is something of a continuing saga--he includes all of the previous introductions and adds new parts to each edition. In this fifth edition, Hahn continues to write whimsical "ads" in the style of phone book yellow pages and sprinkles the guide with nifty excerpts from newsgroups, FAQs, and Web sites. The directory's comprehensive list of categories and subcategories--art, computers, movies, sports, politics, environment, philosophy, support groups, literature, personal finance, world cultures, music, and more--makes it easy to find exactly what you're looking for. But it is the decidedly unexpected categories that are truly fun: UFOs and aliens, cyberpunk, intrigue, bizarre, cool and useful, cool but useless, vices, and something called "devices and gizmos connected to the Net." The book concludes with a good index and also contains a CD-ROM with a searchable database of the sites listed in the book. And if paging through this directory isn't already a great way to pass the time, Hahn includes a list of 25 things to do on the Net when you should be working.From the Back Cover:
