Good book for beginners use. It covers all languages you need to create a dynamic website but you still need to read other books or research online to be really good at these languages. It is easy to read, plenty of examples for you to follow and installation for the software needed are clear and thorough.

None of these languages can be covered in just one book in depth so don't expect that reading this one book can make you an expert. It is a good book to get you started though. For HTML and CSS, you better get some other dummy books; I personally use Dreamweaver so I all the latest dummy books for CC I can get.

For JavaScript, there are other useful books in Amazon and not very expensive. After reading this book, I recommend that getting the "JavaScript pattern", "JavaScript, Good Part" and "JavaScript definitive guide"; those books are not easy to read if you don't know anything about JavaScript so Dummy book is a good start.

For PHP, MySQL, if you still into books, get "learning PHP, MySQL & JavaScript" but I think the best way to learn database application is going online and discuss with other designers in forums. Remember be polite with them.

Dynamic websites are great way to generate viewers and that leads to extra cash earning if you think you have a good idea of designing them. Not an easy task though so getting those books are necessary. Happy reading and wish you a good success.

'Almost' the usual great quality from Dummies books.

Has all the technical information I needed, easy to read and find the detail I wanted.

However I said 'Almost' as there are a couple of issues:
1) Not all of the code is available to download (and the location has changed). So you will manually need to type out some sections of code.
2) I find the readability of the code isn't easy in some sections, maybe its me, maybe its just a limit of paper page width, but it would be easier if they changed the indent/tabs for nested code.

Having only used HTML and Dreamweaver I needed the basics of server side technologies like PHP. This is very good - clear, simple and well explained. It is so useful being all in one book. You don't 'read' a book like this. You 'dip in' as and when. I am well pleased and more knowledgeable than I was.

Seems pretty good. A bit of waffle here and there but then again it is a "dummies" book, so explains from basics.

Very good and comprehensive book with good examples. Finding the online downloads took a bit of digging and that helps enormously when testing code and saves rekeying. Overall, an excellent resource to have on hand for those new to web development.
