Why You'll Probably Like The Art of SEO:

The Art of SEO is incredibly thorough. Many books on the subject will only go so deep. SEO is complex enough to fill a few hundred pages with just the basics. The Art of SEO, as I mentioned, is over 550 pages of SEO goodness from some of the best in the industry, including Rand Fishkin. Rand is the lead "mozzer" at, my favorite source of SEO tools and education.
