Overall a great "in the trenches" overview of web database design... almost as good as this web site! I was looking for nuts and bolts about choosing servers, database engines, scripting languages, and I wasn't disappointed (tho I wish I had more programming background to feel like I was *realy* understanding all the important points!). What the book gave me that I wasn't expecting was (1) valuable perspectives on what makes a site good, what makes a site worth even doing (2) no punches pulled skewering of both hardware and software companies for design flaws, bad customer service, and other sins (3) Really funny anecdotes and wicked sarcasm... I was laughing out loud several times just reading it to myself. A really good book, no complaints.
