The Designer's Guide to Color Combinations by Leslie Cabarga

Perhaps it is just me, but this book offered me nothing I could not have just come up with myself.
The colours are not shown in a way that is inspiring and would make you pick out one colour set over another and the layout leaves much to be desired.
90% of the pages are laid out in the same way.
You could quite easily get some colour sets from this, if you have the imagination to see how they could be used properly.
Hope someone finds it more use than me!
Web Accessibility for People with Disabilities (R &hellip by Mike Paciello

This book has everything I needed and far more.
The first couple of chapters were to be honest a little boring for me, hit chapter 3 and you are well into the things to do, how to do them and what is expected of you as a developer.
As a developer of many years I understand accessability issues but had not realised the vast extent to which HTML can be customised to work better for people accessability needs.
The author makes you understand what to do and why with sample code and references that work and are clear.
Great book for students, web professionals or even home users that wish to improve their sites.
Well worth it!

Saw the book on a shelf in a book shop, picked it up read a few random pages, looked at the photos. Got home and bought it! It is amazing, the layout fantastic and the design ideas are superb.
Working with needy clients this was the perfect companion for quick ideas of a different direction to take things if I were running short.
With explanations of how the designs were created, you are left with little doubt what to do.
I love it! Worth the money!!
