...depending on how Net-savvy you already are.
For those who aren't techies, Cyndi gives a very good overview of how to use the Internet to do research and conduct correspondence. That much it does very well.
For those who know how to use the Internet well, and were hoping to find lots of information and leads you couldn't get from search engines or major genealogy sites (such as her own fabulous site), you could be disappointed. Most of the information will be basic, refresher-level stuff that you probably already know.
I'd highly recommend it for people who aren't savvy with computers or the Internet -- for those folks, I'd give this 5 stars out of 5. For those who already know how to use the Internet's resources for research and information-gathering, I can only give it 2 stars. I'm guessing the book is geared toward the former, so my overall ranking of 4 stars is skewed toward a focus on the less tech-savvy among us.
In short -- very good book for those new to this information...but the information is at a very introductory level, and if you understand and accept that before diving in, you won't be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Although this book is subtitled "Genealogical Research on the Internet," it is really more of a basic guide to using the Internet than it is an aide to genealogical research. A large portion of the book is dedicated to subjects like "How to Send and Receive E-mail Messages," "How Mailing Lists and Newsgroups Work," "Getting to Know Your Browser," and "How to Access a Web Site." Included are indexes of genealogical mailing lists, personal web sites, searchable databases, libraries, and archives, and a listing of the categories on Cyndi's List on the Web. Roughly 20% of the content is genealogy-specific, much of which is available on Cyndi's excellent website. This book will be most helpful to readers who are new to cyberspace but anyone who already knows how to send e-mail or surf the Web will find it less useful.

Format: Paperback
For those of us more familiar with the ins and outs of internet resources (e-mail, newsgroups, search engines, and internet databases), the book could be condensed down from a 182-page book to around 25 pages of lists of resources in a pamphlet. (Or simply by visiting her website.) She does an excellent job of taking the newbie through it all, but I'm a geneology newbie, not a computer newbie, and it's more important to me to know where to look and what to look for, not how to use the tools to do the looking. I miss having a "rating" for how relevant or useful some of the resources she lists are.
