From the reviews: "This short book thoroughly covers one possible theoretical and algorithmic answer to the conundrum of Web service selection by users: base your selection decision on the reputation of the offered Web services. ... the book solely uses reputation, the `confidence in the ability of a specific subject to fulfill a certain task,' as a proxy for trust ... . The book is an academic monograph geared toward active researchers who are working directly within the trust or reputation management domains." (Christoph F. Strnadl, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2010)
