You are better off with the RFC2616, which is more detailed yet better structured and clearer, and less verbose. It just tells you what you need and exactly what you should or shouldn't do. This book does not provide any value over the rfc.
What is HTTP? -- HTTP Transactions -- Client Methods -- Server Response Codes -- Headers -- URL Encoding -- Client and Server Identification -- Referring Documents -- Retrieving Content -- Media Types -- Cookies -- Authorization -- Persistent Connections -- Client Caching
This is a SMALL book. "HTTP Pamphlet" would be a better description. As a "Pocket Reference", trust me, it will definitely fit in your pocket. However, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) probably doesn't need more than the 75 pages it is given (after all, it is a pocket reference).
I'm not sure the (price) cover price is right. There are best selling noves 5 times this size that only cost (price). However, technical books, especially computer/programming/networking ones always seem to cost more.
If you are planning to work with Java Servlets or CGI, you should get this book.

The book is dated. It does not do a good job of explaining http in a modern context (e.g. for use of http for a ReST paradigm). As I was reading it, I was considering how it would read to a http newbie.
I can't recommend this book.
