I found Ms. McClure's writing style entertaining and easy to read - especially on a subject that could be quite dry. I also found the most helpful information to be that presented in the sidebars and charts. Don't overlook the discussions of how Soundex is determined - and did you know that the batch numbers from the FHC has built in intelligence? You'll learn what all this means in this book.
I would have liked to see the information on publishing your own family history web site expanded. Unless I missed it, there's really not much included on this topic. The state resource web sites really only include the State Dept. of Public Health and State Library sites. This isn't a big issue since you should be able to find whatever you need online with your new-found skills!
Good luck in your family search!
