Not for the techies out there...,
This review is from: The Web Content Style Guide: The Essential Reference for Online Writers, Editors and Managers (Paperback)
I was needing a book that really covered content style, so that my websites were more worthwhile from the readers point of view. Sadly what I got here was 32 pages of little depth on content style, 202 pages of an A to Z of web terms that could have come from any PC magazine, and four pages of sample style. I really needed this book to be 202 pages on content style, as I've been in the business long enough to know what ISP, TCP, and URL stand for.
Ideal for managers then!

This review is spot-on. After reading it, I went ahead and ordered the book anyway, through Amazon Marketplace, as I was keen to read the first part. I have to say, apart from a couple of isolated in-depth entries in the A-Z section, those initial 32 pp are the only ones worth reading. So pretty soon my own copy will be back on sale... Worth a read, but must've been a major disappointment for anyone who bought it at full price.
