The kind of review every author dreams of was posted on my 40th birthday:
Let me get a few words out of the way about Web Accessibility: Web Standards and Regulatory Compliance—wow, wow, wow.
… if there are accessibility classes being taught in college these days (and there ought to be), then this book should be an assigned text, and a bargain it would be too. Bruce Lawson must be applauded for his dedication to this series … and putting the people behind it together.
… I like to conclude my reviews with an unbiased look at whatever aspects of a book I feel were weak, or perhaps problematic in some other respect. In all honesty, I don’t have a single negative thing to say here … This book is worth every penny you pay for it.

- The accessibility book
- CSS Mastery, Andy Budd
- Web Standards Solutions, Cederholm
- Designing with Web Standards, Zeldman
- DOMScripting, Jeremy Keith
- DHTML Utopia, Stuart Langridge
- CSS Anthology, Rachel Andrew
- Defensive Design for the Web, 37 Signals (I’ve entirely changed my previous opinion about this book)
- Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, Rosenfeld, and Morville
- official Photoshop and Paintshop Pro manuals
- Photoshop Face-to-Face
- Usability – The Site Speaks for Itself, by Molly Holzschlag and me (for sentimental reasons)
- A box file full of printouts from blogs
