"This is a truly superb book...Martin crams a treasure trove of information into 233 pages. His writing style is concise and easy to digest. I have never found another book that covers intranets in this practical style and so I thoroughly recommend it to intranet managers and their teams, to the senior execs who have the intranet within their purview, and to information management, knowledge management and content management practitioners who may have to deal with intranets, or advise clients on there development."

"Martin White has accomplished a great piece of work that will bring a lot of benefit to a lot of intranet managers."
