A perfect beginner's guide,
This review is from: Learning Web Design: HTML, Graphics, and Animation: A Beginner's Guide to HTML, Graphics, and Beyond (O'Reilly Web studio) (Paperback)
Having recently decided that my personal web page really wasn't up to much, heavily reliant on the functionality of an online authoring tool, I opted to take the plunge and do the job properly.
Jennifer Nierderst's book is a revelation. I've read other beginner's guides before. Some treat the reader like a moron, others like an expert. This book strikes the perfect balance and is helping me to achieve a better looking personal website.
Added to that balance is a wonderful smattering of humour and personal insight and I would recommend this to anyone looking to get into web design - be it for professional reasons or just for pleasure.
