I was offered a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.  This book is a great "list" of resources, but not an actual "guide". A true "guide" would present more in-depth information and categorization; e.g., sub-listing those resources which are free and those which are not.  Also, by providing definitive criteria on the list, it would become a "guide", so that authors would not have to do more research on each listing. It is a fairly comprehensive list, but because the field is constantly growing and changing, the author's might do better served by providing the list on a website that is constantly updated and fresh for the digital consumer. For starters, it provides a host of basic references for industrious writers who want to do the actual in-depth research into the sites themselves.
