5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly excellent 22 Oct 2012
By Tony Jones VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As someone who once understood HTML I found the start of this book somewhat slow and almost thought it a triumph of design over substance; how wrong I was! Once I moved onto CSC (which I bought the book for) I realised that the gentle introduction had served as the basis for a thorough explanation of concepts that I had never understood before.

An excellent (and attractive) book which really serves as a solid introduction for anyone that cares about look and feel of their website

5.0 out of 5 stars no jargon at all - a new way of learning code 2 Feb 2012
By penguni
How has this book managed to teach pure code - pure technical language - without any of the jargon? This book really could take you from nothing to expert in HTML & CSS. Also really useful for pros who need to get up to speed on HTML5 & CSS3 integration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply sublime! 25 Jun 2012
Possibly the best technical book I've ever read, bar none. The information is present in a fluid and interesting way, emphasising the key points and not over-complicating things at all.

I decided that i would learn to code so i first went to codecademy.com. I thought i had learnt alot but when i went to actually try and make a website from scratch i couldnt. So I decided to buy a book and see if i would learn better from it. And i can honestly say i have. The book is well written and i love the way he gives small snippets of code and then at the end puts it all together. Its an excellent reference book aswell. If you are a beginner and want to learn to code, this is the perfect book to get. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for learning HTML and CSS. 19 Feb 2013
By Sam
Really is a good book for learning HTML and CSS, most other books are complicated and badly written. This guy (Jon Duckett) has made it fun, and the website that accompanies the book provides good insight of how the CSS and HTML works.

Really love this book.

Save yourself time and don't bother with other books, this one does it all.
