I'd recommend:
http://www.hisoftware.com/uaccess/Index.html

What caused the choices that were made?  I would also suggest that you
make sure that not only are the reviewers not authors of any of the
books but that they also have a thorough enough knowledge of the subject
and can be impartial.  I'd like for instance to see if we can get Judy
brewer or other wai staff to do reviews or perhaps some profesional
reviewers after being briefed.

Subject: Call for Book Reviews: Accessibility Books


The Special Interest Group on Computer Human Interaction of the
Association
for Computing Machinery (ACM SIGCHI; http://sigchi.org/
<http://sigchi.org/>
) publishes a bi-monthy newsletter, the Bulletin.  Each issue of the
Bulletin features reviews of books relevant to the practice of interface
design professionals.

In May 2003, the Bulletin is hoping to publish reviews of two recent
accessibility books (that have also been mentioned on this list):

Thatcher et al's "Constructing Accessible Websites"
Clark's "Building Accessible Websites"

As Book Reviews editor, I am seeking two individuals to each write a
review
of one of these books.  I am soliciting authors from this list to ensure
that these reviews are written by authors with expertise in web
accessibility.

If you are interested in writing a review of one of these books, have
appropriate expertise, and are not one of the authors of either of these
books (!), please contact me.
