I got this book from a friend and loved it. I did not know anything
about Search Engine Optimization, and this book gave me several chapters
of insights on SEO. Now it makes more sense to me explained in such an
easy way for any beginner. Very easy reading and I would recommend it
to anyone who wanted to understand the basics of search engine optimization
for your website or for your own personal use.

As someone who teaches SEO / AdWords both online and in San Francisco (Just Google 'Jason McDonald SEO') or click on my profile, I constantly read and keep up with every new book out there on SEO. The good news on 16 Beginner Tips is that most of the information is accurate. The bad news is it is very sparse.
A much better book is Peter Kent's Search Engine Optimization for Dummies, which is very complete and a good read. This book would have been a better read as a quick blog post, or an online article, or perhaps an article in a business magazine... But it's way too brief for a book.
