This book describe lots of important aspects of Web 2.0 and helps in dealing with Product-owner/developers. Now I canask the right kind of questions to product managers and developers to find out why they chose the products and tools they're using on a project, and why they eliminated other alternatives, and be in a better position to understand their responses.This book is prepared in a very meticulous fashion. The writing is strong and focused, and the authors make it clear when they are presenting an overview of a specific topic versus an in-depth discussion. The code samples were helpful to understand usage of the tool(s).This is definitely a very ambitious book because it covers so many aspects of Web 2.0, and the authors did an impressive job of providing breadth and a lot of depth for many topics. This book gives depth where it's really needed and focus on breadth where it's appropriate.I really liked the approach used for the two mobile chapters: the first mobile chapter gives an overview of four major platforms. The second mobile chapter discusses other alternatives to give you an understanding of what type of coding is needed to develop apps for each of those platforms.This book gave a great jump start in Web 2.0!

This book was exactly what I needed.It was very ambitious for the authors to try to cover all of web 2.0 in a single book, but they succeeded. They do a very good job of both explaining the technologies in overview and getting into enough detail to get you started with the coding examples. They also compare competing products and technologies as related to the subject matter.The book is perfect for someone like me who has been developing software using technologies that are a few years old and who is looking to catch up on what has passed him by, or for someone who is looking to add a few skills before going on a job hunt.

The book covers almost everything about web 2.0. However, just a little bit of everything. It's good to give you a rough view of what web 2.0. But if you want more detailed and helpful description, you may need another book. This one will not help you to become familiar with web 2.0 technologies. Again, it's good for someone wishes just to have a look at what web2.0 is.

I like the book very much, it is what I expect the services, the book is clean and no damage, that I want to get along the person with no lier on me. Thank You
