Publisher's Summary

The term 'blog' is short for 'Web log', an online site with time-dated postings, maintained by one or more posters, that features links and commentary. That's the most basic definition, but it is like saying a car is a means of transportation featuring four wheels. In Blog, syndicated radio talk show host and best-selling author Hugh Hewitt helps you catch up with and get ahead of this phenomenon.If you doubt the influence blogs have in society, think again. Better yet, just ask Senator Trent Lott regarding his comments at Strom Thurmond's birthday celebration. Ask New York Times editor in chief Howell Raines about reporter Jayson Blair's fabricated stories. Ask Dan Rather and CBS about President Bush's National Guard documents faxed from a Texas Kinko's. Or ask John Kerry about his battle with Swift Boat veterans. All of these major stories were fully covered by the mainstream media only after their exposure in the blogosphere.
Until now no influential blogger has written a definitive book about this phenomenon, but in Blog, Hugh Hewitt helps you position yourself and your organization at the forefront of this information reformation.

A Deceivingly Titled Political Book

I agree with the earlier reviewer. Hugh Hewitt endlessly mentions his own blog and inflates his own ego. Don't waste your money to listen to this. I had to turn it off after about an hour. There is little of substance to learn from this audio book other than Hewitt's political view points and insults. Don't buy this to understand the blog world or to have an objective understanding of it's social influences. This is a political book that is deceivingly titled to sell more.

many better books out there

I research weblogs as the topic of my PhD thesis in linguistics and I can say that this is the worst book I have ever read about blogging. The typical stereotype of the blogger is someone who constantly pats themselves on the back while telling us what their cat ate for dinner. Unfortunately, this author perpetuates this stereotype. While there are no cat menus in the book, there might as well be for all the times he mentions his own blog. For good blog books, see Rebecca Blood or Biz Stone.
