3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better, but it's ok overall 17 Nov. 2014
By J. Hafner - Published on
This book isn't as great for beginners as previous reviewers have said. It's just that it's better than many of the other "beginners" books, which appear to have been written by people who are so deep into the subject they've forgotten what it's actually like to be a beginner.
The authors claim to be aiming for simplicity, and ask beginners to read chapter-by-chapter, but a number of times I've found that they reference material from chapters well advanced into the book. This is particularly noticeable in the "Self-Test" and "Try This" sections at the end of each chapter.
Although great additions, it's really frustrating to thoroughly read a chapter and then be given a "Self-Test" or asked to "Try This" - with an example of something you haven't read, and won't encounter for another 2 or three chapters. It's frustrating and makes you feel like giving up. A better proof-read, or better feedback from actual beginners may have picked these issues up. So, it's far from perfect but none of the 'beginners' books are. But, if you can get over those issues, which in the scheme of things are quite minor, this is indeed a useful guide to starting out in HTML/CSS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beginners Guide to HTML 18 Jan. 2014
By Bookworm2 - Published on
This guide is a good place to start if you want to learn the basics of HTML. You learn about links, images, working with multimedia and much more, not to mention what exactly is HTML.

I took a York college online course recently and the book was on the recommended reading list. The author doesn't assume everyone
was born with an iPad in their hands. Nor is it implied you're dumb as a box of rocks if you don't live in the "tech" world.
Thank you for taking the mystery and misery out of web pages.
Stand back world, I'm about to publish my own web page!
And I don't have to beg anyone to do it for me!
