Somewhat dated - pre dot com bust and google... This book seems for those trying to build an internet only business - like ebay, yahoo. If looking for a book on helping your website this may not be for you (unless your going really big with large internet focus)
Every "immutable" law presented here has been broken and, subsequently, became the rule. This is a terribly out of date book -- written in the hacylon days of Yahoo and Amazon. Definitely pre-Google and pre-ebay. According to this book, audible.com shouldn't exist as the URL breaks one of the authors' laws.
This might have been a good book to read 15 years ago. Most of the real-life company scenarios are from way in the past and I found the examples to no longer apply. Amazon was only selling books as of this writing if that tells you anything. If you're a newbie to the Internet, maybe you can find some applicable items. Other than that, dont waste your time.
It would have been good when it first came out; now it felt dated. For example, at time of writing, Yahoo was the most powerful portal. And Google was not mentioned once in the book.
They were good to listen to as readers; no complaints.
