Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages is an online book: a compendium of wit, wisdom and Internet resources. I believe you will find it to be one of the most enjoyable and informative books you will ever read.
Inside Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages, you'll find essays and commentary on thousands of different topics, organized into 193 different categories.
Within these categories, you'll find over 3,600 items. Each item is annotated with Internet resources, such as Web sites, Usenet discussion groups, mailing lists and IRC channels, making this book the very best reference for finding whatever you want on the Net, quickly and easily.
For parents and children, there is a special section for younger readers, The Little Nipper's Internet Clubhouse (more information below).
You'll use Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages over and over, to amuse yourself and to explore the Internet. And your kids will the online book to help with their homework and Internet research for school.
Thousands of free Internet resources
Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages is not only an extraordinary directory of Internet resources, but a personal guide to life. You'll find information about:
and much, much more, including entertaining, humorous, and interesting diversions.
The Little Nipper's Internet Clubhouse is the special children's section of Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages.
My cat, The Little Nipper, is the host of this part of the book. As such, he will introduce your children to a variety of interesting and educational resources.
All of these resources are safe for children. You can use the Internet with them or, if they are old enough, let them explore The Little Nipper's Internet Clubhouse on their own.
My goal is to encourage your children to use the Internet in a wholesome way, as an alternative to watching television.
I have designed The Little Nipper's Internet Clubhouse around four different sections, similar to theme areas in an amusement park:
Explore and Learn
Within these sections, you'll find over 60 kid-friendly topics, written and researched specifically for children. Your kids will also enjoy reading a story written personally by The Little Nipper (with a little help from me).
If your children would like to see a picture of The Little Nipper or send him email you can visit him at his very own Web site:
From 1994 to 2003, I published 10 yearly editions of Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages. Over the years, as the Internet grew and expanded, I modified and expanded the book until, in time, it became the best-selling Internet book in history, selling over one million copies.
After working for 10 years on a print edition of the book, conditions changed. Hundreds of millions of people around the world were now using the Internet regularly, and it made more sense to offer the book as an online service than as a printed product available only in bookstores.
In 2003, I took all the text and data and completely recast the book as a Web-based service. For one year (2003), Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages was available both in paper and online. Since then, the book has been published online exclusively, as part of a larger service called The Harley Hahn Experience.
For a small charge, you can subscribe to this service and access Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages, the full text of two other books, and as a variety of other features.
What my readers like best accessing Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages online is that it is so easy to use. The thousands of topics are organized into categories, which makes it easy to find what you want. Then, as you read, whenever you find a Web site or Usenet discussion group you want to access, all you need to do is click on a link.
What I like about publishing online is that it is easy for me to keep the book up to date. When I want to make a change I do it and, at that moment, everyone's "copy" of the book is instantly updated.
Most of all, however, I like that I am able to write as much or as little as I want, without having to worry about fitting the text onto a printed page. This means I can take as much space as I need to write about anything I want.
Publishing online has allowed me to write about, literally, several thousand different topics. This is why I say that the 2005 edition of Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages is not only an extraordinary directory of Internet resources, but a personal guide to life.
