Top Customer Reviews
The only useful thing from this book is that it hints about the existence of a free Web design program called SeaMonkey. Now, if I had bothered myself to search Google with the words "free web design program" I could have learned this fact for free.
Anyway, the book starts promising - you type some text and then change some words to italic and bold, and also you learn how to change the colour of the text. Wow! Divine knowledge.
Then, for some reason, the author assumes that one page of boring text on white background (just like a MS Word page) with some words made italic and some bold, is fine enough for a web page and proceeds with the publish lesson. Or maybe he got bored and decided to skip a rather large portion of information.
In the next chapter you learn that the there exist things like web-hosting companies, (which may come as a total shock to you) and these companies will host your site for a small amount of money. Seriously, at some point I expected to see entire chapter explaining that there exist such thing called Internet.
So, the publish lesson ends quite quickly on page 43 and the author is now free from the burden of explaining how to create your own web site - something I think he also hasn't quite mastered. But he still has 205 pages to fill. So what does he do? He goes on explaining how to register in the most popular Web sites, like MySpace, YouTube and Facebook and how to use free services like blogs, photo libraries and EBay stores. Yes, you heard right - he made a book about creating an account at and using these sites. I didn't know whether I should laugh or get angry.Read more ›
