Book Description

25 July 2011
Do read this book - don't let it collect dust! This title presents the dos and don'ts of web entrepreneurship. Have you ever wondered why your websites didn't quite match up to the success of your competitors or peers? Have you ever looked at other sites and thought: 'Why didn't I think of that?'. Have you ever spent too much time trying to find basic information that was buried deep in a needlessly complex website? You are certainly not alone and this book aims to change that by bringing together some of the world's most highly acclaimed designers and developers, spanning every continent, all of whom share their knowledge and experience. With chapters arranged by subject (interface and design, marketing and communication, technology and programming, technical advice, content/content management, and commerce), a clear do/don't structure, and plenty of real world examples of successful and award-winning websites, this book has all the advice and examples you will need to give your personal or business website an edge on its competitors and also win industry acclaim as well as respect from your peers. Your visitors will thank you.

I bought this book as part of research for a website based module at university to help me with my work. The tutor has recommended it to us and really praised it. I am not that interested in technology stuff so I am finding the book just okay. However, for someone who is just starting out or thinking about creating a website, I would definitely recommend this book as it tells you what you need to consider for your website to take the most out of it. The price of the book makes it worth buying as well. I have only scored it 3 stars because it isn't something I'd buy if I didn't have to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old sites showcased / Not much valuable info 29 Jan 2012
By Augusto Nogueira Correia - Published on
It's cool to read and the way the book delivers information is very comfortable. However, it's not a big deal of a information and the websites showcased are from 2006 and before. Like it or not our business is made of really fresh technologies and tendencies. Looking for those FWA awarded websites felt like they're made 50 years ago. It's not that they're not good work whatsoever. It's a timing issue. They simply cannot be an example anymore.
