Library Journal Review

This is a great book for spooks, spys, and other paranoids who have just finished Gralla's title (above) and work for a Fortune 500 company. It's not an easy read, but the text offers a fascinating look at the process of intranet development and the futuristic idea of "virtual intelligence." The CD-ROM includes sample Intelink software demos. Recommended for large central libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
