"John M. Grohol, part Johnny Appleseed, part Magellan, is known to all of us already online as the guide par excellence to, and often the creator of, the best mental health resources on the Internet. We will value his book for the insight it offers into Dr. Grohol's mental map of this uncharted domain. For those not yet 'connected,' the book is the next best thing to being there. It explains what all the excitement is about, and provides a step-by-step initiation to this new medium which is transforming the way we all live and work." --Gilbert Levin, PhD, Founder/Director, Cape Cod Institute
