You can finish it in a few hours. It's geared more towards beginners. There are a few good tips, though.

Happy reading.

I read Mike's book a couple weeks ago. It's a good read. As Blake said, its main purpose is as a quick-start guide.

But there's good stuff for people who aren't at their first rodeo.

Probably my favorite tip was, "Lawyers are the product" (pp. 27-32). Mike really stresses the importance of attorneys' bio pages. I also like that he takes a stand on exact-match domains.

A few gripes:

1. For people who aren't as geeky as I am, there should be a glossary.

2. The section on reviews should have addressed the anonymity / privacy challenge (like by citing my post from February :)).

3. Each chapter should end with a quick “action item for today."

I'd give it 8/10. Solid advice for lawyers and their local SEOs.
