A book that will spawn many copy cats!

This book brings a measure of structure to an otherwise unstructured development arena, and is a harbinger of things to come in computer book publishing. I would expect similar books from Wrox and the other major developer presses. Don't wait for the knock offs. Buy this one and get a jump start on the rest of the world.
Jim's examples are great. Laying out a collection of documents that model his approach to web application modeling was very effective.
I would suggest that future editions assume more in terms of the reader's baseline knowledge (the first part of the book is a great synopsis of web technologies, but is major repeat for most I would think... although perhaps the average Addison Wesley reader is less informed in this regard...?)
Jim should write a book that surveys major process models (UP, MSF, ICONIX, etc.) and applies his proposed discipline of web app modeling in each process model for projects of various sizes. It is clear how one would apply this approach on long projects... I am very keen on seeing an approach that scales down to 3 week to 3 month projects while not completely sacrificing the modeling discpline. As it stands I don't see UP scaling this far down! ICONIX is close... MSF is the closest, bust lacks much in detailed modeling process.
