4A Technical Research View of Accessibility
By Brian L. Donat
Being still in the process of exploring this work, an evaluation now is necessarily, somewhat conjecture. The book, compared to others on the topic is more research fact oriented. It presents a different view of accessibility than other books in that others are more in the vein of 'how-tos'. This book is more concerned with definitions and contemporary evaluations. One should not assume to automatically reject the book, having heard this. The information exposed thus far, has not been found in other books on the topic. As such, this volume supports other studies of Web Accessibility and Computer Accessibility in general with material that illuminates the social environment, materials, devices and other aspects of accessibility. Again, there is material presented in this work that is not exposed elsewhere. It's a good compliment to other prose on the topic.

5Delivers as promised
By Vjekoslav Majsec
This is a really good foundation for (scientific) research in topic of web accessibility. It could help a beginner researcher to assess state of accessibility in short time.

Before I've ran into this book, I reviewed more than hundred articles just to obtain very same piece of information which this book is giving with ease.

On the other hand, this book has little or no value for practitioner interested in how to improve web sites in order to facilitate access for people with disabilities.
