Don't waste your money ...
on 11 September 2012
This is an awful, awful, awful book. If it were possible to rate this book in minus stars, I would have done. The author's writing style is simply bad (here's a hint Mr. MacDonald; anyone picking up a book on creating a website WILL have a basic grounding in the subject, so don't talk to your readers as if it is the first time they've seen a computer), and the subject matter is even less advanced than the free W3 online manuals.
I brought this book on Kindle, and it highlights one of the basic problems with the technology - had I flipped through this book at the bookstore, I would have realised that the sub-basic introduction never develops into useful information, and I would have put the book down and walked away. The Kindle means that you have fewer research opportunities, and that you are obliged to put up with poor purchases like this one.
Don't waste your money, you can get better basic information about HTML and CSS free on the web (and it is more likely to be up-to-date), and you won't have to put up with this author.
