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.

This Text Refers to the Hardcover Edition:

The Internet was once an orderly place where authorities exchanged views with authorities, and you could save time and money by accessing the top people directly.

Then, the Internet took off and was soon filled with scams, slams, sham and spam . . . and even less desirable material.

Blogs create the potential to regain the best of the Internet's potential. Hugh Hewitt provides a great service for those who are new to blogs and blogging by describing the positive role that blogs can play in balancing the Main Stream Media. He also warns those who are blogless what risks they are running and how to protect themselves.

This is a beginner's book, but even with millions of blogs over 98% of people on the Internet don't have one yet.

The book is a quick and interesting read, and will send you to the resources you need to find out what you want to know . . . whether it's the inside scoop on the latest news controversy, or just how to find readers for your new blog.

Usually the people who write books like this about new media don't have much experience. Hugh Hewitt brings the perspective of being a veteran talk show host, a columnist and one of the world's hottest bloggers. That's a great vantage point for a book on the future of blogging.

Unless you've been blogging for two years and read blogs daily, you will find this book to be a revelation.
