Fell below my expectations 8 Oct. 2010
By J. Bishop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had hopes for this book. I was expecting it to be like Don Norman's The Design of Everyday Things, but I was left disappointed. It is basically just a collection of papers, most of which are based on more concise version of papers that appeared in the American Behavioral Scientist 45(3), which is freely available to students and academics with the right privileges. It's a beyond being paid for on an individual basis, but I found my library's copies of Social Computing: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications by Subhasish Dasgupta a more comprehensive edited work for the contemporary age of social networks on the Internet. If you're a student you can always get it by Inter-Library loan if your library doesn't have it, or ask your them to buy it as it's well worth reading - it is more up-to-date than this dated work, which is basically available online anyway.

Use of Internet for Non-business and non-workplace Scenarios 23 Dec. 2004
By Dr. Mohamed Taher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The comment on editor (using the reviewer's sacred space) is not out of place. Amazon has a different logic to treat people. In the previous incarnation amazon.com had an option for author's to comment. Now, I presume, it is turned into Guide.

amazon.co.uk and amazon.ca have differences in this regard, and in the ultimate this strategy (of sorts) hurts the authors, reviewers, commentators, etc.

Internet in Everyday Life is a kind of book that I could lay my hands, on the very day it appeared in the market.

--- Comments forthcoming --- I will be back soon and give a full picture of the book, its structure, approach and value for the every day life.

Shouldn't the editor identify himself in a review? 21 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm sure this is a good book but I'd like to see truth in advertising!
