Although this book isn't super thick it provides a concise guide on how to evaluate the various factors contributing to slow web site performance and offers real world guidance that can improve page load times significantly.

If you're looking to add features or capabilities to your site but are concerned about the impact these changes will make you must read this book and have the developers writing code take steps to correct many of the common mistakes typically made.
