Luke shares his secrets in this book, which should be required reading for every graphic designer, project manager, interaction designer, or usability researcher who might ever work on a Web form. Web Form Design is that rare book capable of transforming the way an entire field does its business. --Communication Arts
Luke Wroblewski has written one of the best books on user experience and web usability that I have read for some time. It deserves a place on every user experience or web designer's bookshelf. --The Designer's Review of Books
I highly recommend this book for both new and veteran web designers. It will help you to think more strategically about web forms, which will make them more successful. Your clients and their customers will benefit from your newfound knowledge and you'll feel like a genius. --Viget Labs

The information is targeted at designers with intermediate experience. If you've been reading A List Apart since 2001 you'll probably feel like you've heard a lot of this book's content already. However, having it collected in one place has a lot of added value.
One thing I feel is missing is the code examples for all* the "best practice" form designs. I understand this isn't the intention of the book, but code examples are usually given on web design blogs.
*Some code examples are given in the end of the book--I haven't gotten to them yet--but they couldn't cover ALL the designs.
The book's content provides full methodology and illustrations of FWD Design, which will benefit; web & graphic designers, publishers, photographers, and technical writers in adapting their projects for E-display.
