And I had a doubt. "Do I need a book for this king of people called "dummies" after been reading a lot of SEO books for the last 4 years?"
Well definititly no! But I was wrong.
This is one of the best books I have read so far regarding this field. Peter Kent does a excellent work explaining the do's and dont's regarding SEO, giving excellent advice and ideias to anyone working with search engines, from begginers to more advanced.
A great value for money!
