3A fair book for beginners
By Eduardo Crivelli
this book has helped me to understand the conceptual aspects regarding APIs.
The author chosed an iterative style of writing, so he keeps coming back to the subjects over and over with more details or cross references inside the book at each chapter.
Some important concepts are going to be printed on your mind because of the repetition but it is a tiring process.

A must-read for anyone developing and designing APIs. The book is full of practical advice and walks you through the important decisions you need to make when building an API. You can feel that the author is speaking from personal experience. The REST concepts are well explained, many examples show the proper application of REST and the best practices are easy to follow.
