The Lawyer's Guide to the Internet
Back before the Internet was considered a professional necessity, there was a book that was written to help lawyers figure out what all that new-fangled technology was all about. It was (and still is) called The Lawyer's Guide to the Internet.
What the Guide Is About
The Lawyer's Guide to the Internet, true to its title, is about useful Internet tools for lawyers and offers a solid catalog of tips, information, and legal resources on a variety of Internet-related topics and technologies.
Here is what some lawyers have said about The Lawyer's Guide to the Internet:
"If you want a comprehensive explanation of the legal-specific resources of the Internet and how attorneys can use them, take a look at this book."
"The Lawyer's Guide to the Internet is just off-the-charts wonderful. Nuts and bolts, high-level theoretical sophistication, astute cultural criticism, and a sense of humor."

How to Buy the Book
Times have changed. Lawyers can buy The Lawyer's Guide to the Internet on the Internet now, from Amazon.com to be exact. Here's the link.
However, this is what the author, G. Burgess Allison, had to say about that: "At the time , it was the American Bar Association's fastest selling book. But in the 10 years that have passed since Lawyers Guide was published, the technologies have changed dramatically. Buy it just because there was a time in e-history when every law-related online resource actually *could* fit in the printed pages of a book appendix. But don't buy it expecting that the technology in it is current."
