Elements of Book Strategy.
Thin books, well-designed with an authoritative treatment of a timely and compelling topic. It’s never easy to execute, even with a stable of all-stars, but Jeffrey Zeldman and Eric Meyer apparently have done so with A Book Apart. Everybody glowed about HTML for Web Designers and CSS3 for Web Designers. The newest book, however, The Elements of Content Strategy from Erin Kissane, looks to be the first treatment sufficiently far outside my comfort zone to deserve a spot on the shelf.
