Catch a Falling Knife?: Strategic Thinking about the Web for Mid-Market Executives
This book is intended to be a quick read for mid-market executives who have been struggling with figuring out how the Web might impact their business, and some valuable insight into what they ought to do about it.

An easy and enjoyable read, the book provides a straightforward and logical rationale for the roles of IT and marketing relative to the develoment of Web sites, examples of successful sites, and some very useful tips and advice for those embarking on their first (or second) commercial Web development effort.
