Patience is a virtue, 11 Sept. 2011
The book starts with a basic HTML page layout and builds things up from there. The author makes sure that everything is explained thoroughly so that you are never unsure about anything. There are some lengthy sections near the start about validating web pages and editing software, which initially is not particulary relevant but persevere and you'll get to the good stuff.
The chapters in each book are broken down into small sections so that you don't have to read them through in one go. If you enjoy planning like me this is particulary useful for timetabling your study. Like most dummies guides i've read though the onus is on the reader to do their own experimentation with the information they are given. I generally do my own versions of the demonstrations and make notes before moving on.
I would definately recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning about creating web pages from the ground up because it provided a nice structure from which to direct your learning, but be prepared to find information from other sources too.
