There is little to distinguish this book from other works on web usability. Though it concentrates on forms rather than pages, it discusses the same design issues.
I was very disappointed how little thought and page room the author gives to the quality of the data being gathered by the forms he discusses. It is clear that lowering the barriers that forms create between the customer and what they wish to achieve on your site is essential, through better design if need be. But it helps little that they can fill a form in quicker, for example, if the data gathered is so poor as to be unusable. The author recognises that we should be designing forms to work "outside in" (from the point of view of the customer) rather than "inside out" (from the point of view of the database beneath it), but this can be done without compromising on data quality.
The author is also firmly fixated on the United States and gives hardly a mention on the issues that customers from outside the States, who speak different languages, don't live in states and so on, will have when filling in forms.
