One nice touch at the end is a "Webliography", which gives several language resources available on the World Wide Web. I do not know if Mr. Quinion coined the word but it serves a good descriptive purpose. Future books of all sorts should provide such a separate listing of additional Web resources for the benefit of their readers.
So far I have found no "dislikes."
