'In this book you can read about:
How the World Wide Web was almost called the Mine of Information.
Which missing bit of his body a man spotted on a website.
How a gorilla starred in an on-line chat session.
How to churn, boink and blog (over 12 years only).
How, in the not too distant future, the 'Incredible Internet' will allow you to experience the smells, sounds, sights and feels of places thousands of kilometres away, all without leaving the comfort of your own cyber-hovel.'
If you have read the 'FOUL FOOTBALL' and 'TOP TEN' series of books, you will be aware of the way in which MICHAEL COX puts knowledge across, in a humorous way. This book is no exception.
