Somewhat dated - pre dot com bust and google... This book seems for those trying to build an internet only business - like ebay, yahoo. If looking for a book on helping your website this may not be for you (unless your going really big with large internet focus)

Terribly out of date -- and completely wrong

Every "immutable" law presented here has been broken and, subsequently, became the rule. This is a terribly out of date book -- written in the hacylon days of Yahoo and Amazon. Definitely pre-Google and pre-ebay. According to this book, shouldn't exist as the URL breaks one of the authors' laws.
