Great bot book Sept. 2 2008
By herbman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've had this book for a few months and it is the best published bot book.
It tells you need to know about the http protocol to extract data from a site which use javascript and ajax! The parsing libraries are very help, though some tweaking is always necessary given the magnitude of sites.
If you need to write a bot, but don't know how, this book it for you.

It serves its purpose Dec 7 2013

If you know some c# and want to write a bot it is fine. Recipes work, logic is clear. It clearly explains what you need to do.

Excellent work March 9 2012
By Jeremy Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for something not necessarily to make bots but analyze webpages and do automated searches. I found the information I needed here, plus learned a lot of tips if I ever wanted to make a serious bot.

It mixes theory and practical application very well. I would think if you were writing a serious in depth bot this would be the bible for doing so. It has many examples of the concepts it discusses. It talked a bit over my head in some areas but it's a great book. The author clearly knows the subject very well.

I did have a hard time with some of the code getting it to work, but I don't blame the book. The examples were set up in such a way that I could figure it out and make it run.

I think this author mainly sells books by word of mouth, which is how I found it, which probably explains why there aren't many reviews for it. Don't let that sway you, this is a great book.

great book, not too advance Jan. 28 2008
By Elad Chohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
the author website do not have his last spider in dotnet, only java
and the source code of his spider is only available in java.
but even tough, the recipes are helpful and save time.
to get the most of this book you needs to be a self-learner.
