1.0 out of 5 stars Why is there no negative star rating? Take his points away!, 20 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Websites That Work (Paperback)
What Black has to say about web-design in this book would fit onto a single 640x480 screen in 72 point bold. He fills a book with pictures of his shaven head, repeats pictures of his own sites, and strangely, since the cover claims he wrote the book himself, quotes himself in the form "Black says". I read the book in a library, and would want to go to his office if I had paid the $45 cover price. Black no doubt sees this as controversy, but the guy is a pseud, and it seems from what he says in his book that others do all the design work anyway. Don't pay for this advert for Black's company and Adobe. Boycott the man, the publisher and maybe stop even looking at the web, for if this is the future of web design then we will only be seeing self congratulatory web sites in black and white and red with big serif fonts.
