Serious web analytics made practical. With so many changes in Google Analytics plus other tools available, it could really use a 3.0 or 4.0 update by now.

What a fun to read author and a great book
What a fun to read author! This is one book I actually looked forward to reading, not only for how absolutely informative it was, but for the author's fun sense of humor. Kaushik is a foremost authority on all things "web metrics" and has a great blog as well as being a great author. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this book as far as wanting to learn the basics (or remembering what is important, for those already experienced). For beginners, Kaushik covers the most important things to focus on early, so you don't get overwhelmed. He then provides the extras that are good to incorporate once you get comfortable with the beginning stuff. For experienced users, Kaushik reminds you of how going back to the basics and getting out of the weeds will improve your results, and again, provides the advanced concepts as well. This book was easy to understand for me, as a beginner and had lots of great examples.
