This book may be the best thing since sliced bread for you, or can be practically useless. It has an extensive focus on Joe web surfer's persona, on why and how he behaves on the web. It also explains basic concepts such as A-B split testing, ROI, and gives a few examples from author's consulting background. There's a few mathematical formulas, which I am sure are excellent for marketing folks.

But what completely lacks from this book is THE WHAT and THE HOW. The "Uncovering Problems" section is surprisingly small and has no real value. It is explainable - the later part of the book is nothing but a marketing promo of author's consulting business. This costs author 1 star in my review.

The second star I remove because this book is completely useless for small to medium business. If you are a company with under $20 million in revenue - which is where 99% of websites belong - this book is not going to help you much.

This is a very important book. It helps you understand why the landing page is so impacting on the final actions of your visitors and what a landing page is for that matter. The book provides you with excellent guidance for analyzing your current website and determining how to make it easier for the visitor to use and, more importantly, easier for the user to do what you need them to do.

I loved the section titled, "Why your site is not perfect". It provides excellent information on how to uncover hidden problems in your site that your users are experiencing even though you may not have noticed them. Let's just say that it goes way beyond dead links.

Finally, "the math of tuning" shows you how to make logical decisions for next steps and make sure you're not wasting time fixing things that aren't broken or don't matter. Overall... a great book.

If you know absolutely nothing about marketing or web commerce, this may be the book for you. It touches on a great many important subjects, and provides a useful -- if brief -- introduction to each.

If, on the other hand, you have ANY experience at all with basic marketing principles and the concepts and techniques behind optimizing your web site to maximize customer response, you will find this book quite tedious.

Simply put, nothing in this book gets more than surface treatment. Hundreds of very valuable concepts are introduced but none is ever fleshed out in a useful fashion. Practical examples are almost non-existent. Case studies are not used. Techniques are described in the broadest terms so that they may apply to any of a million different contexts or scenarios. This approach renders the book nearly useless to anyone who has even a little bit of knowledge in this area.

After reading a few chapters, I was simply bored out of my mind. I switched to scanning sections and dropping in periodically to see if the level of detail increased, but it did not. I do not consider myself an expert by any means, but there was nothing here that I found enlightening or even useful. It's all too bland and general.

I started the web site for my small business about five years ago, and constantly seek out new sources of insight into how I can improve it. The information in this book was just too generalized to be of any use.

If you are new to web marketing, use this as a primer, but you will soon be itching for a more practical resource. A shorter but infinitely more helpful (and entertaining) primer might be something like

Landing Page Optimization is a must-have book for anyone in e-commerce and online marketing. This is the bible of online money making, and turning visitors into buyers - a one-stop resource for traffic acquisition and conversion.

For me this book was a magic tool that helped me not only see the whole web business differently (and I'm a seasoned professional with more than 10 years of experience), but to quickly bring measurable results and increase ROI. After reading this book, it took a few weeks to make changes and see dramatic sales increases.

There are always opportunities to improve your website or landing pages and this book will tell you what to do and how to do it. I'd call this book "an eye opener". This is the best resource I've ever come across for conversion rate optimization. It's incredibly comprehensive, with tons of useful information.

Here is why I would recommend it:
1) It helped me to understand all of the major conversion problems with what I previously thought of as my "perfect" site.
3) It laid out all conversion-improvement tools that we needed, and saved us lots of time.
4) It gave us a complete blueprint for developing our conversion strategy and building the internal team.
5) I was able to triple the conversion rate in two months using very few outside resources.

I strongly urge you to read this book and implement the strategies and tactics described. I personally keep it on my desk within easy reach and refer to it often!
