5.0 out of 5 stars You need this book, 20 May 2008

I have to say that I'm suprised at one reviewer saying that it was confusing.Not at any point did I find it confusing.This book is a very very good example of how to write reusable bulletproof code. Obviously the code supplied from the website,as with ALL coding books, is not quite the same as the written examples, but hey! the point is that YOU write the code,not cut and paste.And yes he does point to others websites as examples of how they can be improved with DECENT code,bloody right, there's far too many people still writing sloppy xhtml and css,with sites that belong in the dark ages.Get with it! and get some standards.

1.0 out of 5 stars 19th Century Web Design, 20 May 2008

I would'nt normally write a bad review, but I feel I have to warn anyone who wants to take flash design seriously and actually find it engaging,which of course leads to a better understanding.If flash was around 200 years ago this is what they would be doing with it.Fair enough it gives a basic overview of how to build a website with flash, but it only skims the surface and the actual project being built is so utterly depressing, that it's likely to put you off.Take a look at any flash site on the web and you will soon realise that this book must have been written by someone who does'nt use the internet.Do yourself a favour and buy the Phillip Kerman 24 book or the Hands on Training books.Don't waste your money on this, it's awful.

5.0 out of 5 stars book + website= success, 28 Nov 2007

I have never written a review before, but know feel compelled to do so.If you are serious about wanting to learn html, don't buy any of the 24hr quick learn rubbish, buy this book and follow the tutorials on th HTML Dog website. True, this book is fairly advanced, but the website starts it's tutotials from beginner,and they are concise and more importantly, written in xhtml strict. Buy this book along with HTML Mastery and Beginning CSS and CSS Missing Manual and you won't need anything else to learn how to write perfect code.
