I'm currently reading The Art of SEO and I'm finding that it is mostly theory (600 pages of it). Theory is nice, but I would also like to complement the theory with some concrete, step-by-step case studies done by experts in the SEO field. So for example, similar to what Eric Ries accomplished in The Lean Startup. I am not looking for short portfolio piece descriptions by SEO practitioners; ideal candidate resources ought to be substantial and genuine SEO learning aids.
Has anyone come across such a resource that fits this description?
