I've read the last version of this book at the library, some of it is a rehash from the first. I found so many dead links in the new version it frustrated me. While there are a few good quality sites in the book it's not worth the price of this book to come by them. I began searching the internet for my own links. I have found much better sites with a number of free things to download or print. There is a homeschooling mom who locates and publishes free homeschooling sources on her blog and her sources are much better than this book. There is nothing life changing here. If you want to homeschool economicly or start out on the right path I recommend reading When Children Love to Learn: A Practical Application of Charlotte Mason's Philosophy for Today. With the methods described in this book you could use the library for nearly all your curriculum.
Good Resource Book for Homeschooling Parents

This is my first year Homeschooling so I really need materials that I can read through easily and find information quickly. This is one of those kinds of resources. It is laid out well and we have used many of the websites recommended for many different subjects of study. My son has enjoyed the activities on these free websites included in the book and when he wants to practice math or whatever subject online he has many options to choose from. It includes preschool ages on up to High School.
