The content in Branding Your Website by Maria Bowie is diverse and includes many aspects that may seem minor but are crucial in the process of branding a site.

I also liked that the content is well organized and hence makes reading quite easy. The book is also brief therefore it can be read by anyone, even those who are busy and prefer content that is not too long and that discusses the topic at hand. The verses included at the end were a great addition as they offer motivation. Branding Your Website contains important information that is crucial, especially to beginners in the world of cyberspace.
