Announcing Even Faster Web Sites
Since I’ve started writing books, I’ve always been the lead author and the main person behind the writing of the book. Trying to get a book out is a lot of work and trying to coordinate everything and write takes a lot of energy. It’s been fun, but a lot of work, and I decided that I needed a break. So when Steve Souders first approached me to write for his new book, Even Faster Web Sites, I was hesitant. After talking with him, he just wanted a single chapter and the idea of being a contributor rather than “the man” really grew on me.
This is the first book that I’ve worked on as a contributor, and it’s great to be joined by some of the best in the business who also contributed: Douglas Crockford, Stoyan Stefanov, Nicole Sullivan, Dylan Schiemann, Tony Gentilcore, Dion Almaer, and Ben Galbraith.
I want to thank Steve for the opportunity to work with him and this ultra-talented group of people. I’m very excited about the prospects for this book, which should be another “must-have” for serious web developers.
