Book Review: Web Form Design > Filling in the blanks

The cover
in the last weeks I tried to read the book Web Form Design - Filling in the Blanks by Luke Wroblewski because I'm very interested in the topic.

The content of the book in general is very interesting but I don't know why the book wasn't able to get my full attention (and I tried it several times).

I wasn't very happy with the layouting and the structure of the content. A lot of prosa text for things that can be said in a few bullet points - so in my opinion a lot of unnecesary words. The examples used to visualize the different topics were ok, but sometimes it was not so easy to match the correct explanation to an example.
Good examples but not the perfect structure.
Perhaps I was a little bit influenced by the last book I read about this topic - "Forms that work" by Caroline Jarrett and Gerry Gaffney (my short review). It was perfectly structured with great examples and explanations that were easy to understand ...

Only for clarification... I think the book by Luke Wroblewski is good but not as fascinating as the book by Caroline Jarrett and Gerry Gaffney.
