This book is nicely written and provides a good roundup of Web 2.0 technologies for those who have done some programming (e.g. using Java) or some basic web development (hand-coding HTML) and who now want to know how HTML, JavaScript, PHP, SQL, vendor APIs etc. fit together. Four stars for that.

For complete beginners, some of the descriptions are reassuringly clear and simple but the PHP and JavaScript code examples might be a step too far. Personally I think that there are easier ways for beginners to create mashups using the newer drag-and-drop mashup environments like Microsoft Popfly, Yahoo! Pipes, and -- ok, this one's not drag-and-drop -- the Google Mashup Editor (GME).
