Steve Klabnik's is pretty good: http://designinghypermediaapis.com/

And there is this one http://www.amazon.com/Building-Hypermedia-APIs-HTML5-Node/dp... also which is longer but more detailed. You don't need to know anything about node to understand.

I took a look at Steve Klabnik's a few days ago. Honestly, I couldn't get into it - I'm not sure why, but I felt it was disorganized. I felt there was no way to really jump in from the beginning, get a good ground-level understanding, and then progress to more advanced topics. It felt more like a collection of articles targeting people with various backgrounds and levels.

Maybe I'll be back to it after I've read another resource - it's quite possible Steve's is simply for someone who understands more about these concepts than I do.

try the other book I shared then, it will probably suit you better.
