This is more than just the e-book it claims to be.  The author of the book has really laid out what appears to be his website with a collection of websites with his view of what constitutes valuable resources and materials, and not, necessarily, for ESL teaching and learning.  You can find everything from documentaries about the brain and how B.F. Skinner's work is being used on autistic children, today, to articles about activism from the early 60s and "anti-war and peace" sites.   I think I will like the e-book for my work with ESLs, or if not this book, the method used.  I just think this work is more about getting a message out than what it is purporting.

Technical Remarks:

A few of the links, particularly the only one of the list of links that I was really interested in, didn't work.
