You can do just about anything on Yahoo!--the site that started out as a popular Web subject tree and has morphed into a centre for doing everything from finding a job to finding a date. How to Do Everything with Yahoo! documents the site's capabilities as they were in the third quarter of 2000. Essentially, author Alan Neibauer talks about Yahoo! as if it's a powerful application rather than a Web site. This is an appropriate approach (on Yahoo's part as well as Niebauer's). Even if you use the site all the time, this book will likely introduce you to cool things you can do with or on the popular portal that you never knew existed.
The book begins at the registration process that gets you a free Web-based e-mail account. Calendar management, maps, auctions, travel and the rest of the services your registration gives you access to, including the surfer-friendly subject tree that made Yahoo! famous in the first place, are covered next. You will find lots of references to other sites too. One potential flaw lies in the explicit procedures advising the reader to "choose this, click that"--they aren't well-suited to Web services like Yahoo! and they too often become obsolete without notice anyway. --David Wall
