Graham Edmonds: The Good Web Site Guide 2001

The Good Web Site Guide 2001


This book works on the premise that most people - once the first enthusiasm has worn off - don't particularly enjoy surfing, because it's expensive, slow, they don't know what to look for, haven't got the time or simply have no recommended starting point. The book is effectively a list with a few words saying why it's recommended. It will have an introduction (in the manner of Hardens Restaurant Guide) which will give a controversial summation of the state of the net for that year. It assumes basic knowledge and will not contain information on how to use the net. The sites will be general but chosen for their skill in linking with other more specific sites. For example it will recommend a general football site where you can move to specific teams. It will be easy to use in an A Z of net subjects. Yahoo, BBC, WHS and other major 'hub' sites will have a page of their own The 'best' will be judged in terms of content, ease of use, value for money and service. The book will also have cross referenced index and will include around 500 sites in the first issue. The layout will be 'customer intuitive': easily readable typeface, (interestingly one of the biggest home users of the net are retired people); be accessible, i.e. cheap and not too long; and will not attempt to be too 'clever' or include wacky or weird sites. In the first issue we will ask for readers to recommend sites - we will set up a site to log these and we will use these recommendations to amend and adapt subsequent year's guides - published annually. We have acquired the site

The shogun's sword tester and executioner--the o-tameshiyaku--is a position of great prestige requiring consummate skill. While the feared and respected Yamada "Decapitator" Asaemon holds the post, another swordmaster lives with the obsession of claiming the office, and this election can be won by only a single vote--cast in steel and certified in blood! 'Raban is, for my money, one of the key writers of the past three decades - not only for his immense stylistic showmanship, but also for the way he has taken that amorphous genre call 'travel writing' and utterly redefined its frontiers..."Passage to Juneau" is his finest achievement to date. Ostensibly an account of a voyage Raban took from his new home in Seattle to the Alaskan capital through that labyrinthine sea route called the Inside Passage, it is, in essence, a book about the nature of loss...You close this extraordinary book marvelling at this most distressing but commonplace of ironies. He's home, but he's lost. Just like the rest of us' - Douglas Kennedy, "Independent". 'This is an extraordinary book...The epic journey through eddies, rips, whirlpools and various other marine terrors quickly becomes intensely personal..."Passage to Juneau" is far more than a meditation on the sea and its meanings; it is also an unsparing self-examination, written with mordant humour and forensic ruthlessness' - Justin Cartwright, "Daily Telegraph". 'A thrilling adventure and a telling internal exploration...the writing contains natural description of breathtaking exactness...and the sea itself - in all its moods - has Building Construction Illustrated, Fifth Edition free epub surely never been so intricately painted' - Edward Marriott, "Evening Standard".
