For some it's shoes, others collect Zippo lighters... me, I have a weakness for web design/development books and this is right up there in my top three. Chapter 3 is worth the purchase price on its own but do start at the beginning - it's not the usual *yawn* potted history of the internet and its browsers, it's a valuable overview of the state of technology in 2013.
Bonus: each chapter has a list of suggestions further reading, also highly valuable.
I have to agree with Craig Buckler in his excellent review above that the first part of the title does the book a disservice but hopefully as more people read the book and leave swooning reviews such as this one, the title will matter less and it'll be known as "the book you MUST buy".
Very rarely do I say I would fork out for the second edition of a book but if one were to appear in 2015, 2016 I'd be queuing at midnight like a Harry Potter fan* to buy it :-)
* Disclaimer: I haven't yet actually read any HP but apparently they're quite popular...
