Product description


[T]he perfect companion on a cross-country flight or during a long quiet evening in a favorite reading chair.―Artificial Life


Huberman's The Laws of the Web lucidly explains the Internet's boom and bust. His research has long been useful to theorists of social coordination; now, business strategists can take advantage of his succinct and clear analysis. The growth of the Web, as well as the economic and social conventions that seem to be spawned in unpredictable and chaotic fashion, come into focus here.―Paul Whitmore, User Interface Visionary, E*TRADE Group (Endorsement)

This short volume presents in non-technical language the surprising regularities and laws that show up in the behavior of people using the World Wide Web, from a scientist who is at the cutting edge of research into this emergent phenomenon. It should be required reading for anyone who wants real information, as opposed to breathless speculation, about the nature of the Internet.―Francis Fukuyama, Dean of Faculty and Bernard Schwartz Professor of International Political Economy, The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University (Endorsement)

Until now, information technology's most profound accomplishment, the Web, has been its least understood. Huberman changes this with a highly accessible yet analytical work that will no doubt become a foundational reference for both researchers and web technology developers.―Greg Papadopoulos, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Sun Microsystems (Endorsement)
