Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Yes, a complete book on web cookies, those much vilified small chunks of data in our preference files that make it possible for us to go shopping on the web and to reenter password-protected sites without hassle and to track our information preferences. Even those of us who don't like the idea of web managers storing code on our hard drives acknowledge that these little chunks of data are becoming more important. St. Laurent covers a lot: cookie myths; cookie management; client and server side cookie scripting; cookies and the Common Gateway Interface with Perl, Java, and JavaScript; cookies and active server pages; and future changes to cookie architecture. Recommended for all collections serving site managers.
