Will this be a trend as books become digital?From a review of a book that got a Jolt Award.
Don’t read this book when you have no Internet connection. This book reads better in electronic form than the printed page, and makes liberal use of hyperlinks to reference information. In the preface, Russell says that he does this in order for the reader to look at reliable, current information rather than out-of-date material. Without the links, material would need to be included directly in the text, making the book larger and less direct.
