But if you click

Where is the Semantic Web?

And several hours of research later, I'm still not quite sure how to write up a book review, with author and publisher and ISBN and all that exciting information encoded in a way that tiny little people in mechanized bloodhounds (or however search engines and aggregators work) can find it when searching for such info.
