As with Souders previous book, there is little that will be new to professionals who've kept up with best practices via blogs and the like, but it's still nice to have all the information in one handy book. For those who are just starting to investigate web performance optimization, High Performance Web Sites plus Even Faster Web Sites will get you up to speed quickly.
Remember that every 1 second longer your page loads costs you 10% of your users and you can use this book to convince management to invest resources in speeding up your site.
A must read.

For those of you who are thinking of purchasing this book (or the previous similar book) I would recommend that you save your money and follow the guidance that is available free of charge on the web via 'YSlow'. The author of these books was involved in the implementation of YSlow, and much of what these books contain is covered adequately in the notes that accompany YSLow or those in Google's on-line WebsiteOptimizer.
