I really expected much more from this book. The author is claiming that the book is meant for Inkscape users and webdesigners, but i really don't see anything new or really useful in here.
People that know how to use Inkscape don't need this book at all, for example i read only one full book on it before (the one written by Inkscape community) and a lot of tutorials over Internets, and there was nothing in this book (priced 40$) that i haven't seen in a free tutorial somewhere.
Also, this book is not meant for web designers either. If you already work in this area, like i do, you won't find anything useful either. It is not supposed to be a book about webdesign, it's a book about Inkscape - but why then the author tries to teach her readers web design basics instead, and does the extremely bad job at that?
The author is writing like for a person who heard of web design practices for the first time in their life, but what she recommends is outdated at best, and very doubdtful at worst. Let's put it that way - the examples of her work made with Inkscape as part of the teaching process in this book aren't nearly the best ones in web design, not even good ones, and certainly not something you'll want to copy if you'll be working in this area.
She states that some of the monitor resolutions include 800*600 - really? In what century anyone used that, like maybe 10 years ago? Even contemporary netbook screens are larger than that, for god's sake! She also called people who "make" websites into code by "programmers", betraying the total lack of any knowledge on the subject at all. I refuse to believe that a professional with "12 years of experience in multimedia" (like they call the author in preface) won't know a difference between a "coder" (who writes HTML) and a " programmer" (who does not). She also suggests that we should use freeware clipart in our work. I'd lose my job faster than you can spell "incompetence" if i ever did that.
If she just wrote about the program and how to use it, i would be content with that, but the author also fails to deliver any consistent knowledge on that part either. If you need to know how Inkscape tools work, this is not the book you need. It picks a few tools that are theoretically used by web designers on daily basis and tells you as much as you could learn from a blog post or free tutorial. Well, having a bunch of tutorials in one place could be nice, right, but not for the pricetag of 40$! Don't waste your money on this book.
