The Title “Website Design Guide” is Misleading
on 18 August 2015
When I saw the title “Web Design Guide.... for Beginners” I thought it would be a simple guide on how to design a simple page and put it on web – not a bit of it. Instead, the “book” turned out be full of waffle – all 101 pages of it. At first I thought, it may or may not be a good book, but, didn’t think that a non-fiction can also be a claptrap.
I looked forward to some sort of useful instructions on how to design a Webpage for myself. Instead, I was made to read seriously emphasised price guide:
- Domain Registration from £3 ($4.50) per year
- Domain Hosting from £36 ($54) per year
- Website Design from as little as £100 ($150) – a one-off cost.
So, I started skipping the boring bits. And before I knew it, I was at the last page of the book – still looking for a chapter on how to design a Webpage for myself.
Have I learnt anything to justify the price? The answer is “Zit”. Were there a normal 12-months guarantee that “money back if the book didn’t work”, I would have returned it already and asked for refund.
