Reseña del editor
Web accessibility not just morally sound – there are legal obligations as well
Very large potential audience, consisting of web developers and business managers
Very little competition to this book

That said, it is sorely in need of an update.
When Web Accessibility was published, Internet Explorer 7 had not yet been released, nor had Firefox 2. Netscape was still hanging around, and Gmail was still in beta. XHTML 2.0 was supposed to herald a golden age of Web standards.
All that seems like centuries ago in the timeline of the Internet, and portions of this book provide examples of the best practices and techniques from that time. Having come through that era of Web development and emerged on the other side, I can say that some of the techniques might still be useful; most are not. And that's where, today, with no new edition of this book available (and no clear successor), I have to dock it at least one star. The outdated code samples put an unnecessary burden on today's reader to know enough about past techniques to know when to reject them, and enough about today's best practices to know what has replaced them.
Accessibility is such a diverse and important topic, that one actually should not rely on any single book. This is a good book, but supplement it with a couple others to get contrasting viewpoints and info covered that this book lacks. Check out all the references. Be willing to dig and dig and dig and try out the methods and practices. It has been notable to me after reading through about four different books on Accessibility that one is not enough. If one starts with this book, absorb the material, but radiate outward; check out the referenced materials and read some additional books, whether those compliment or expound upon the valuable material you'll find in this one. Dig into some other related topic books, like Human Factors, HCI and books regarding Usability, User Interfaces and User Experience. The topic of accessibility really is much larger than one might expect. Surely it larger than just coding alt text into web pages.
This book and others are valuable sources, but if one exposes themselves to several concurrently, the variation of viewpoints, methods and practices will quickly become evident.
Get the big picture. This book is a great reference source, but it is recommended to supplement it, supplement it and engage in practicing what it and other books preach.
