“Chapter 1 alone is worth buying the book. I love the way it presents the state of the industry realistically but refuses to sink into the naysayer-type misery that we are seeing industry-wide.”

—Renee Human, Northern Kentucky University

“I love that attention is paid to issues like usability, navigation, and the audience. Too often those issues are left out of textbooks.”

—Jennifer Mackay, Virginia Tech
