EROWID REVIEW #
I don't really understand this book. It's basically a list of web resources for finding information about herbs online. I can't quite imagine why it's a book rather than a website except that maybe it was written in 1999 and didn't quite make it to print until 2006. For those who have access to the internet, it's ludicrous to be looking for information about websites in a book. For those who don't have access to the internet, this book is useless. This type of information in print quickly becomes outdated and is much harder to read and use than the same resource online. I would significantly prefer a business card with the url of an "online herbal information links" website. That the book includes sections on "how to use a website" and netiquette including emoticons just makes it surreal.
