From the reviews:
"This current book moves on from introductory issues into more technical matters – thereby focusing on the creation of wikis using two of the most popular production engines – namely, MediaWiki and TWiki. … This is an interesting book which I would recommend to anyone who is interested in getting involved in the technical aspects of wiki creation. … the book is very well written – which makes reading it a pleasure rather than a chore." (Philip Barker, The Electronic Library, Vol. 25 (2), 2007)
"Wiki: Web Collaboration is one of the remarkably few books on the subject of wikis available … . It is written by three multidisciplinary authors from Germany, two with an information science background. … For someone contemplating installing and maintaining a MediaWiki-based wiki website, this is worthwhile material. … A short appendix gives additional information on installing TWiki, followed by a glossary, bibliography and brief index." (Jonathan Bowen, The Times Higher, July, 2006)
"Wikis are open-source, free software that facilities Web collaboration. … There are highlighted tips, notes, and cautions throughout the text that provide useful information on working with the software. I found them both helpful and conveniently located in the text … . The book is an excellent translation from the German edition." (Linda Kenny Sloan, Technical Communication, Vol. 54 (2), 2007)
