Search User Interfaces named a best book of 2009

Avi Rappoport alerted me to the fact that Chris Sherman of Search Engine Land named Search User Interfaces one of the
best SEO books of 2009.

I was pleased with how Chris explained this choice, given that my book does not talk about SEO directly. He says:

“With our focus on search marketing at Search Engine Land, it’s unusual for me to review an academic textbook, but Search User Interfaces is an unusual book—and I mean that as high praise.”

He goes on to explain what he found valuable about the book in more detail. I am really glad to know the book is of value to practitioners as well as academics.


  1. Congrats! And certainly there’s no harm if people looking for SEO tips end up learning how to make their sites more optimized for human users.

    Thanks, Daniel. And thank you also for pointing the whole world to the recent tech talk I gave summarizing some parts of Search User Interfaces. Your blog really makes things go viral.

  3. Are review copies of the physical book available?
