Not the best web design book I have read by a long way. The tone of the book is rather patronising and the content is limited in scope. There is also an obvious bias towards mac users which, as we are told repeatedly is the case for the authors. I didn't learn anything new from this book but I guess it would suit someone just starting out, maybe a student. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0735714339, Paperback)

Anyone who has managed the process of developing or redesigning a Web site of significant size has likely learned the hard way the complexities, pitfalls, and cost risk of such an undertaking. While many Web development firms have fantastic technical expertise, what sets the topnotch organizations apart is the ability to accurately manage the planning and development process. Web Redesign: Workflow That Works directly addresses this crucial area with a specific, proven process.

This brief but important book lays out a specific five-step strategy--called the Core Process--that can always be applied to the development of Web sites and fine-tuned to almost any type of project. Each step--defining the project, developing site structure, visual design and testing, production and QA, and launch and beyond--contains three related but distinct tracks. The text begins with a brief overview of each of the steps, then delves deeper into each with detailed explanations as well as specific forms and project-management strategies. This book does not cover back-end, server-side programming. Instead, it focuses primarily on the visual, conventional components of a Web site.

Authors Kelly Goto and Emily Cotler compiled this book in an attractive, easy-to-read format. This process guide uses numerous full-color screen shots to illustrate site examples, as well as plenty of site diagrams and sample forms. The book even has a companion Web site with downloadable forms in PDF format to put the Core Process into immediate action. --Stephen W. Plain

Topics covered: Step 1--Defining the Core Process: discovery, planning, and clarification; Step 2--Developing site structure: content-view, site-view, and page-view; Step 3--Visual design and testing: creating, confirming, and handing off; Step 4--Production and QA: prepping, building, and testing; Step 5--Launch and beyond: delivery, launch, and maintenance.
