Product Description

About the Author

Mark Lassoff 's parents frequently claim that Mark was born to be a programmer. In the mid-eighties when the neighborhood kids were outside playing kickball and throwing snowballs, Mark was hard at work on his Commodore 64 writing games in the BASIC programming language. Computers and programming continued to be a strong interest in college where Mark majored in communication and computer science. Upon completing his college career, Mark worked in the software and web development departments at several large corporations. In 2001, on a whim, while his contemporaries were conquering the dot-com world, Mark accepted a position training programmers in a technical training center in Austin, Texas. It was there he fell in love with teaching programming. Teaching programming has been Mark's passion for the last 10 years. Today Mark is a top technical trainer, traveling the country providing training for software and web developers. Mark's training clients include the Department of Defense, Lockheed Martin, Discover Card Services, and Kaiser Permaente. Mark’s clients rate his classes 9.81/10, with consistent perfect scores on participant evaluations. In addition to traditional classroom training, Mark is a sought after video trainer and host. He has authored and hosted video courses for several publishers, including his own company, Inc.. Mark has authored over 15 online courses and works with students from all 50 states and over 47 countries. Over 10,000 people have learned programming skills from Mark’s courses. He lives near Hartford, Connecticut in a 150 year old converted textile mill.

This book is absolutely brilliant - It's very easy to understand and copy code
straight out the book into your own HTML file - It's all you'll need for basic
HTML & CSS - If you're studying web programming seriously then this is
the book to buy - The kindle version of this book is quick & effective

Baffled by the rave reviews - Purchase if you are stupid, apparently 30 Dec. 2013
By Michael G. Hollandsworth - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I did a little BASIC programming, self-taught, in high school, as well as some self-taught HTML. This was about a decade ago. My interest in programming has blossomed again, so I decided to start with some HTML and Javascript. I chose this book based on the amazing reviews and its dazzling description of the author and his background.

Everything started out fine, however, nothing in this book is clear. I don't understand how anyone could say the content of this book is clear and easy to understand. It seems to lack any sort of pre-publication revision and has silly grammar errors, such as using "its" instead of "it's". The author takes for granted that the reader already has taken a course in HTML. If you are totally new to HTML, you will be scratching your head and using the internet to find answers to questions and fuzzy areas you get from trying to follow this book.

For example, on page 15 (Kindle version so yours might be slightly different with your font choices etc), are multiple choice questions (#'s 12 and 13), asking specifics on what metatags do and apparently the function of meta names. METATAGS AND META NAMES ARE NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE AT ALL IN THE BOOK PRIOR TO THIS POINT. They are mentioned later on pages 19 and 20, but very very little is said about them. If your only resource is this book, you will not be able to answer question 13. Keep that in mind. This is what you are getting yourself into when you buy this book.

I want to keep up and finish it, but the way it's thrown together is an insult to the customer. Clearly the focus was on marketing and not on teaching HTML.

Excellent, informative, easy to follow 8 Jan. 2013
By Jay Peterson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I picked up the book after going through the video tutorial. I have absolutely zero HTML/CSS coding experience and my last programming endeavors were with FORTRAN and Z80 Assembly Code 30+ years ago! (Yes, I'm that old!) Mark does an outstanding job teaching, explaining in an understandable and methodical fashion, reinforcing and then building upon each lesson with appropriate exercises. I'm glad to have the book now to reinforce all I've learned so far and I'm looking forward to other courses from Mark in the near future.

Not So Great...Save your $$ 25 Mar. 2013
By Chase J. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have a programming background and I am in the process of learning web development using the Ruby on Rails platform. While working through the RoR tutorial, I realized that I needed to get some basic training in HTML & CSS. I chose this book because of all the positive (rave) reviews. Even though there were only 20+ reviews, I decided to give it a shot. My first clue that this book might have some problems was that on the second page of chapter 1, the word "role" was misspelled as "roll". As I progressed through Chapter 1, I noticed that:
- Section 1.1 states it should take 30-45 minutes to complete yet I was finished in 11 minutes. It was primarily just some reading and one multiple choice review question. I think most people would struggle to spend more than 15 minutes in that section.
- The lab activity in section 1.3 discusses the importance of comments and asks the reader to use comment tags. However, comment tags only appear to be introduced in section 1.5. I had to look up comment tags on the internet to complete the exercise.
- No answers were provided for the exercises -- or at least I could not figure out where they were. If a book has multiple choice questions, I feel the reader should be able to check the answers.
- I also noticed that even though I was only on page 11, the progress meter at the bottom of the reader said I was 33% through the book.
The book does appear to provide some basics but I became so distracted with the poor quality that I lost confidence in the material and decided to look for another alternative. I find it difficult to believe that so many reviews would be five stars and these issues would hardly be mentioned.

With the update now there is a table of content even on iPhone 27 Jan. 2013
By Minifalda - Published on

I changed my review below and went from 1 star to 5 stars because my only problem was with the missing table of contents on iPhone and now this has been solved. I believe the author really did his best to solve the problem and contacted me several time about this issue. So congratulations to him. And thank you.

The book is great and I have no doubt the author is very good at explaining HTML. But for what I am doing, which is just find the very basics of the matter to modify some existing code, it is a big problem that this book (kindle) has for some reason no table of contents. Of course you can make a search and find the info you want but with a table of contents it would be so much easier. Actually if I had known it didn't have a table of contents, I would not have purchased it.

It's hard to learn out of this book. It needs great focus and concentration but it can teach a lot
