Mild disclaimer: I am also a member of the ALA Learning Round Table, as are the authors. I'm pretty sure I've at least said howdy to them, but given my face/name deficits, I can't really say. This is an unsolicited review of my library's print edition.

My only "gripe" with this book so far is a very good-natured one. Every few pages I have to stop and jot down notes about a web site I want to visit or a book I should read later.
