I read the book cover to cover and put over 20 tabs on the book for the references they have provided on the web. I checked quite a few and they are a gold mine of info.
I like this book because of its broader appeal. If you sit down and read a text that goes into excruciating detail before you are ready to use that information, reading becomes laborious and you don't retain it. Or you bail on the book and never get the overall picture.
This book is a nice balance of the full picture and the ability to get the detail.
Mind you, when I say it does not go into detail that might be a bit misleading. For instance, when in the section about Search engine Optimization, it helped explain this concept in enough detail that I had a clue what the issues were when dealing with an advertizing firm. Sure enough there were links listed here to provide even more detail. The User research and persona usage was very up-to-date regarding how these would be used and why you might use varying degrees of details. In the section about Wireframes and Annotations, there were good examples and advice as well as links to get more. The User testing section had interesting information that was very current as well. I could go on and on, but the book speaks for itself. You can view the Table of Contents online.
Another thing and it is not a small one, the book is well designed for reading. The font is pleasant and the layout is efficient and provides cues for both "Surfing" and "Deep Dives" of information. In fact they provide sections called Surfing, Snorkeling and Deep Diving, which is very helpful. Nice when a book practice what it preaches and makes itself as usable as the products it's meant to help design.
This book is going on my desk for reference and has been recommended to colleagues.
Also, there really isn't anything that I could truly sink my teeth into. I wish it was more substantial and less vague at times. The content as a whole was very elementary--beyond common sense for the most part--and I was expecting something that would challenge me and make me think instead of carrying me around like a baby (that is a step beyond holding my hand).
Nonetheless, if you can get past the pain of reading this, are capable of filling in the many blanks, and can do some more research on your own time, it's quite resourceful.
