Amazon And Beyond,
This review is from: Amazon.com Mashups (Paperback)
The book covers more than the Amazon APIs so I recommend it if you are interested in mashups in general. I'm very keen on JSON right now and was pleased to find that covered as well. I think the author is a very good programmer who has many clever ideas like using XSL to transform XML into JSON (although using Yahoo! Pipes is easier). I'd have to say that this is one of the few programming books I've read that presented some really ingenious solutions and creative project ideas. Most books just provide uninspiring "Hello World" examples.

WOW! thanks for that, high praise indeed. I too have been frustrated in the past with boring tech books so I definitely tried to keep this one interesting. Glad you liked it.
