Web Design Book Page Updated | April 5, 2004

I've just updated my web design books page to allow visitors to choose if the links point to Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.

The links on the previous version used to point to Amazon.co.uk, but considering the number of American readers this site gets, I decided it was time for a change. Spurned on by Dunstan's selector I knocked up my own.

Could you add Amazon.ca too?

Or Chapters. I’ve never felt very good about Amazon sidestepping Canadian taxes by only opening a token office.

Great books there Comrade, I bought this one recently (missing from your list) and really quite an essential IMHO.

Ooops! Broke your blog with that long URL… :(

Nicely done, and an interesting selection you’ve made too (particularly the first two books; I’ll check ‘em).

However - and “Psssst!” - use a spellchecker now and again!

You’re right to mention Search Engine Visibility, It is a very good book. In fact it’s on my bookshelf right now, so I’m surprised I’ve not got round to writing a review of it. The only thing I would say is that the SE market moves so fast, the book is already starting to get out of date. However, the basic principals are still sound, so it’s well worth a purchase.

Oh, and no worries about breaking my layout with your long URL’s in IE :-)

I need to know how that works!

No Orange book? :)

Well I just bought Web ReDesign. I had someone post a link to it off my site, and now you, so it must be worth it.

I just ordered “Defensive Design for the Web: How to Improve Error Messages, Help, Forms, and Other Online Crisis Points” by 37signals’ by Jason Fried. Will you let you know if it’s any good!
