Notes: A guide to accessing and using Usenet newsgroups. Includes a decent (but short) introduction to Usenet, including info on the Usenet community and conventions. The majority of the book is a list of Usenet newsgroups and the FAQs that live in each - information that can easily be found online at no cost. It also reprints several general Usenet introductions that are also available online for free. Doesn't cover rot13 or how to decode binary files. In short, not the best way to spend your money.
