"High Performance Web Sites" VS "Even Faster Web Sites"

Hi, I am interested in Steve Souders' 2 books: "High Performance Web Sites" and "Even Faster Web Sites". Is Even Faster Web Sites the new version edition of the first book or are they complementary ?

Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Hi J,

    Thanks for your interest in these books. The books are complementary; Even Faster Websites is a follow-up to High Performance Websites.

    Here's some information from the introduction to Even Faster Websites:
    The rules from High Performance Web Sites still apply and are where most web companies should start. Progress is being made, but there’s still more work to be done on this initial set of rules.

    But the Web isn’t standing still, waiting for us to catch up. Although the 14 rules from
    High Performance Web Sites still apply, the growth in web page content and Web 2.0 applications introduces a new set of performance challenges. Even Faster Web Sites provides the best practices needed by developers to make these next-generation web sites faster.

    If you want to know more about the content in these books, you might want to look at the table of contents and previews on the books' pages on our site.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you still have questions.

    Have a great day!
