The number of postings to this list discussing favorite Internet books
shows that the bookstores are indeed on to a good thing! One small
effort toward bibliotherapy for Internet beginners and pros alike will be
a review article on such guides now being prepared for a 1995 issue of
_Technical Communication_. Most of the books listed below will be
evaluated; other titles will be added once I've looked at them and
decided to include them. Not all books received from publishers have
made it onto this list. I don't want to publish evaluative comments just
yet--the article will offer lots of analysis and recommendations. Please
E-mail any suggestions to me individually rather than to the list.
Thanks much to all you TECHWR-L folks.
