For such a thin book, it manages to cram technical facts, dumps of HTTP transactions, many diagrams and tables . -- Apache Week
For those that want to understand what goes on underneath the hood, this book is an excellent reference. -- Doug Larson, San Diego Mac Users Group, August 2001
From the Publisher
All web programmers, administrators, and application developers need to be familiar with HTTP in order to work effectively. The HTTP Pocket Reference provides a solid conceptual foundation of HTTP, and also serves as a quick reference to each of the headers and status codes that compose an HTTP transaction. For those who need to get "beyond the browser," this book is the place to start.
