5.0 out of 5 stars You won't find a better book on the web., 3 Sep 2001
By 
This review is from: Taking Your Talent to the Web: Making the Transition from Graphic Design to Web Design (Paperback)
Just the fact that you're reading this on the web is reason enough to buy this book. Even if you never intend to use the web for anything more than surfing, "Taking Your Talent to the Web" book will leave you knowing more about the web, how it came to be, and what those working to produce web sites suffer and cope with, than a lot of seasoned pros.
And it's a funny book. Jeffrey Zeldman writes with a unique and light touch about a subject he loves, making this more entertaining than a thousand dry "How to..." and "What the web is" books.
If you do work in the industry, you've got the chance to fill those gaps in your knowledge and learn from one of the wisest designers and coders we have. Jeffery Zeldman exemplifies the open nature and potential of the web. In "Taking Your Talent to the Web", he discusses the fight for web standards, shares his knowledge, and entertains.
Highly recommended.
