Summary As the population of the Baby Boomers' children arrives at the teen years, publishers and librarians scurry to meet the radically different needs of the Net Generation. This collection of "essays, talks, editorials, and rants" are sure to dissipate inertia and frustration, even as they rejuvenate the perennially young at heart.
