Smileys Review

By George Woolley of Oakland.pm

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Smileys:

The scope of this book is impressive.

It includes an incredible number of ASCII smileys.

It also provides some valuable perspective

as well as a very extensive dictionary

in which you can look up smileys.

I wanted this book for a long time before I got it.

I was not disappointed.

If you found this review,

likely you would enjoy this book

and very possibly even find it useful.

This book would be a fun present for any geek,

and, for that matter, for anyone who does email

or instant messaging

or most any other form of on-line communication.

However that said,

I think it's time for a second edition.

For more detail, see my longer review.

It's a good book, and a great comprehensive guide on how to express one thing usually difficult to express on the internet -- emotion.
