Format: Paperback
An easy and informative read chunked into useful sections including important topics such as SEO (search engine optimization) to blog engine choice. In addition it includes even more advanced subjects such as CSS3 (cascading style sheets) and JQuery. The beginner will be taken on a journey of discovery from creating your first simple page, through to styling the page, adding links to social media sites and finally publishing your hard work for others to enjoy.
Many of the topics covered will enable you to embellish your blog posts with easy to read tables or lists, link to external sites and add some dynamic content with the use of JavaScript and JQuery. The web is a constantly changing landscape and this book ensures you are up to date with chapters on HTML5 and CSS3 which will ensure you web presence is readable by even the latest mobile and tablet based browsers.
As a crafter with an existing blog, I was able to take much of what the author shares and incorporate easily. Adding social media plugins and links to an ecommerce solution were explained in enough details to enable me to incorporate these services into my blog in very little time, increasing my traction with Facebook, Twitter and Google+ as well as allowing my flowers to buy my creations from the comfort of their armchairs.
If you are a blog author, then there is a complete section on CMS (content management systems) with a focus on WordPress and how to get the most from it. You can use many of the skills that the book teaches to enhance your blog’s template, and even go on to create you very own.
Al in all, a good start point for your journey into website design and development that will not only enhance the quality of your web presence, but may even find you digging deeper into what you can create using HTML5, CCS3 and many other web technologies.

Format: Paperback
The book is incredibly easy to read and follow. As a beginner about the subject I thought this book covered all the topics I wanted to discover and learn more about. From SEO to CMS or even CSS, HTML, testing etc etc, thanks to this book you will not waste your time gathering the information bits by bits from different sources. All you need is clearly categorised in chapters.

It's a 'must-have' book, whether you're new at web design or not.

Invaluable information regarding website navigation and effective design. HTML and CSS are covered in a way that it is easy for anyone to really understand and put it into practice!

It is a great tool as well to tweak a wordpress theme for example if you use Wordpress as a CMS.
If you dont know what a CMS is then buy the book because it is also explained in it !

I find the book quite exhaustive and it comprises all you ever need to know for your first or even second website!
This is a clearly-written guide to Web Design. Beautifully presented book with great layout, text and illustrations. The reminders, tips and warnings are very useful!

I recommend it to anyone interested in Web Design!

This book is superb. I am fairly highly computer literate (wholly self taught), but one area I have no experience hitherto is of web design. My needs are those as publicity officer for a small voluntary organisation. We have limited expertise and even more limited money available.This book has foreseen all the needs and pitfalls of entering this field, takes you gently onwards from first principles, and has enough content and detail to enable the novice to make a good job, with or without professional help. I have found it specially valuable in identifying the issues one has to be aware of, deal with, and decide upon BEFORE getting down to work. Too often, 'a website' can be blithely and simplistically seen as 'the answer' for an organisation struggling with promotion and publicity, and this book makes it clear that a website is NOT a panacea. Rule one: content comes first. Rule two: content comes first. Rule three: content comes first. Think this through, think about the needs of the readership, prepare your material, and then the website will (with a little help!) fall into place!

Format: Paperback
Brilliant book covering all the required steps to successfully plan, design, build and measure the success of a website.

I work as an account manager for a digital agency and this book provided a great step by step guide on everything from the planning of a site (target audience, goals, purpose, devices) to optimising design, the benefits of using different coding languages and then on to how to measure and track the effectiveness of your site. Would suit an absolute beginner and allow them to build a site from scratch - but also works as a great aid to anyone working on websites and the best practices that could be used to optimise a site.

Actually read mine whilst taking a few notes of hints to implement once back in the office. Will certainly pass it around the office!

If youre after a book to teach you Website Design & Development then this isnt your book (use the HTML5, CSS3, Javascript & PHP & MySql books instead). If youre after a book to teach you about the different kinds of design processes, How each accessibility tool is used and why, how designing your website correctly can benefit your site etc. then this is the book for you, its defiantly earned its place on the bookshelf as a go to book if i need to recap myself on a specific thing. I got this book to improve my designs, give them a better feeling for the people who can not use websites effectively due to disabilities such as being blind. This helped me improve my skill set and is written well like the rest of the series.
