I was waiting for the release of this book for some time as it seemed so promising. Accessibility is a rapidly developing field of study for web developers, newer options and demands are emerging all the time as more and more is known and learnt about how disabled users use the web.
With this in mid its unfortunate that this book could not take advantage of advances made in the last year. I was hoping that the most recent book would be the most up to date and cover topics like Flash MX. (Especially given the delyed release date)
The main problem I had with this book is that it is trying to cover too many bases. The blurb would have you believe that it contains information on how to mange accessible web projects, but to concentrate so heavily on code examples, contradicts this.
What we really need is less examples of how to code and more examples of how these projects have been managed and run successfully in other organisations so that we have a chance of doing the same. I was so unimpressed with what was missing from this book, that I'm probably being unfair to the good stuff.
Conclusion: If this book was released last year, it would have been essential reading. If you've already read other books about coding accessibility for the web, you can probably afford to miss this one. If you're looking for a good introduction to web accessibility issues, you can do no better.
