Since it is a business-oriented book, I liked it, but I was not crazy about it. I can imagine how much effort the author put into while writing the book. Some important informations are in the book, but less explanation on funding models and so on. By listing different website makes me feel doesn't worth the price I pay. And also, I would suggest a much more organized list by geographical feature or other features, current arrangement for the website lists is a little messy for me.
