Here are some other products we saw at Book Expo America 2001, held in McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
The Cell Phone Handbook from Aegis covers a range of topics from the history of cell phones and how they work to how do I transmit a fax over a cell phone?

Many people steal images, text and clips off the web. Getting Permission for Nolo Press book tells how to do it right by asking permission legally.
The Opera 5.x Book from No Starch Press is about the Opera browser. It does not include unnecessary chapters on the history of the Internet or competing browers.
Prima's Fireworks 4 book is filled with screen shots to help you more easily design websites. It includes a trial version of Fireworks and Dreamweaver 4. Most unusual is that the entire text of the book is written in BLUE ink! Needless to say, I am a fan of that color.
Hackproofing your Web Applications from Syngress is a no-nonsense book about developing applications that are more secure and less prone to hacking attacks. A nice feature in this book is the "Fast Track" section in the back which gives you a comprehensive overview of the important concepts, chapter by chapter. It's like having a book with built-in Cliff's Notes.
