Mining Amazon Web Services: Book Preview

You may have seen I make use of the Amazon API, by displaying their content next to Google API results in tools of this blog or my Authorama book site.
Today I can give you a first look at Mining Amazon Web Services: Building Applications with the Amazon API, a new book by John Paul Mueller.

The Book

“Amazon’s new Web Services allow any computer application to find and display Amazon product information and initiate commercial transactions. (...) Written for professional web developers creating Amazon store fronts and web site owners who want to get a piece of the action by selling for, this unique book focuses on development, not consumer, features. Topics include: Working with Web Services data; Writing applications using VBA, Visual Studio .NET, PHP, Java; Writing applications for mobile devices; Refining/crafting your Web Services program and considering user needs.”
