Head First HTML and CSS
Head First HTML and CSS
by Elisabeth Freeman
Edition: Paperback
Price: 21.07

5.0 out of 5 stars It works - Hello World!, 1 Sep 2013
Initially I wasn't terribly gone on the book's format - anthropomorphisation of HTML tags, silly characters with speech bubbles etc seemed a little childish - but I have to hand it to the book's creators - it works. This is a fantastic book for a beginner. I learned a huge amount and the book's page layouts are excellent for positional awareness as you work through the book, where many other books on the subject are very short on visual cues - look up from the page and you are lost. This is definitely a book for a beginner and does a great job getting one up and running with HTML and CSS.

Brilliant Photoshop CS5

Edition: Paperback
Price: 15.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Steve Johnson book, 1 Sep 2013

Information very well organised with each topic covered in a 2 page segment with step by step. Well indexed. You can use it as a reference, dip into it, or work through it as a training manual. Very visual layout, lots of screenshots. It's actually possible to read it without the application open due to the use of screenshots. Reasonably priced compared to many adobe manuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Informative, 1 Sep 2013
Highly informative, packed with information. Very good value. Clear concise narration, by a very well spoken British gentleman (David Powers). I had run across David Powers before on Adobe's site where he often writes and answers queries. These video tutorials are excellent. You will need a notebook and pen in hand as he packs a lot into each few minute segment. Really well done. Delighted with the depth of information. I also found David Powers very personable and likeable - I genuinely looked forward to doing each tutorial.

A colleague recommended this mouse. I was worried it might take a bit of getting used to but 30 seconds of using it was more than ample to get to grips with it! Love it, moves smoothly, feels great.

If you want a good laugh look no further. Read extracts of this aloud to my family as I went through, several reduced the entire family to tears - from laughter.
