Praise for RESTful Web APIs

“This book is the best place to start learning the essential craft of API Design.”

Matt McLarty Cofounder, API Academy

“The entire time I read this book, I was cursing. I was cursing because as I read each explanation, I was worried that they were so good that it would be hard to find a better one to use in my own writing. You will not find another work that explores the topic so thoroughly yet explains the topic so clearly. Please, take these tools, build something fantastic, and share it with the rest of the world, okay?”

Steve Klabnik Author, Designing Hypermedia APIs

“Wonderfully thorough treatment of hypermedia formats, REST’s least well understood tenet."

Stefan Tilkov REST evangelist, author, and consultant

“The best practical guide to hypermedia APIs. A must-have.”

Ruben Verborgh Semantic hypermedia researcher
