Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the people who put an armadillo on the cover of a system administrator book comes this collection of the computer underground hieroglyphs called "smileys." Originally inserted into email messages to denote "said with a cynical smile":-), smileys now run rampant throughout the electronic mail culture. They include references to politics 7:^] (Ronald Reagan), entertainment C]:-= (Charlie Chaplin), history 4:-) (George Washington), and mythology @-) (cyclops). They can laugh out loud %-(I) wink ;-) yell :-(0) frown :-( and even drool :-)~

His full collection of over 650 smileys, compiled over the years from email messages and news postings, is on display in the reference section. Throughout are examples of how smileys are really used in typical email conversations. This book also advances the state-of-the- art of smileys, including such innovations as Smiley Comics and Where's Smiley?

Format: Paperback
Smileys. You know what I'm talking about. Those little sideways faces composed on computer keyboards. Known also as "emoticons" they express a variety of emotions, feelings, sentiments, and sometimes represent well-known persons. They serve as a quick way to get messages across, whether good or bad, happy or sad. David Sanderson has complied over 650 of them in this handy pocket sized book to meet every occasion and need.
This printed collection of smileys is arranged topically by categories such as emotions, attitudes, persons and personalities, animals, hair styles, special interests, and occasions. Examples of actual smiley usage are provided throughout the book to help readers along. Definitions for recommended use are provided to help readers select the right smileys for the right occasions. Readers will have fun combing through the pages of this book to see what is available. And of course, everyone is free to compose their own smileys. All the ingredients are here!
This smiley guide is ideal for company office and network environments where people communicate with one another on a regular basis. It will also come in handy when composing e-mail to send to friends, relatives, and business contacts. A smiley can add a touch of humor and personality to any communication. Have you sent a smiley today? 8^D

I didn't really need this book but thought it could be helpful. Many times people send me a text with a smiley face and they look good, so I thought I would see if I could send some out to others!
