Wether you're just starting to get into web design, or have been in it since the early days, there will be something to learn from this book and the information is delivered in a beautiful manner.
If you do not know how to code websites using HTML and CSS, I highly recommend getting "HTML & CSS - Design and build websites" by Jon Duckett (ISBN: 978-1-118-00818-8) to accompany this book. Those two go hand in hand in teaching you how to create stunning websites and put across the information very clearly and elegantly.
I have worked in website production for 13 years and still found this book very useful. It covers a lot of the basics but also serves to highlight many practices that have become normal practice these days. As we all know, the internet changes really fast but this book gives a great snapshot of what is happening now and how to make your sites the best possible.
The book is well written and has great illustrations which makes it a really easy read.
This is a well designed book. It looks great, it's well structured and makes sense. It shows plenty of examples of what works, and can be a rich source of ideas on the look and feel of things, as well as on the thinking processes that underpin the visual, i.e. helping the user to find what they want as quickly and easily as possible, so they don't leave your sites confused and/or dissapointed.
An excellent book, well put together.
