Building Web Reputation Systems
Author: Randy Farmer and Bryce Glass
Publisher: O'Reilly, 2010
Pages: 336
ISBN: 978-0596159795
Aimed at: Web designers and developers who want to incorporate feedback
Rating: 4
Pros: Valuable advice based on real experience
Cons: Could be improved by a different order of chapters
Reviewed by: Lucy Black

...The book concludes with a real-life case study based on Yahoo! Answers Community Content Moderation. This makes interesting reading and gives a context for what has gone before. It left me wondering whether I might have got more from the rest of the book had I read it first - but of course with this type of book you wont just read once and set aside. You'll refer to it for help as the need arises - and there is an index that will help you locate specific information.

At the end of the day I realised I'd gleaned a lot of useful and practical advice but it would have been an easier experience with just a little reorganisation of the material.
