"Designing a new web application by referring to the RFC can be very time-consuming due to the sheer quantity of condensed information. Thankfully this book takes apart the specs and expands them into a more easily digested form...The book is well-written. Linux Format Rating: 8 out of 10."
--Maurice R Kelly, "Linux Format," April 2003

"If you want to learn more about HTTP, its core technologies, and the context in which it exists, this book will likely serve you well."
--George Woolley, Oakland Perl Mongers Group, Jan 2003

--Major Kearny, Book News, Jan 2003
