I would strongly recommend this book for any novice, in fact it would still be a pleasant read for any expert that had some spare time on their hands.
In fact I recommend this book so strongly that I am actually writing a review, that out of principle I usually avoid doing! Buy this book, it is worth the low cost I guarantee!
An excellent (and attractive) book which really serves as a solid introduction for anyone that cares about look and feel of their website
This book is a welcome change from just about any other book. It is lovingly designed, easy to read, and the format, though aimed at the beginner, is also fine for the intermediate user. The reason I think I can say this is that, because of the way it reads, it sinks in to your memory. Other courses I have done in the past I have simply forgotten with the passage of time, but this book really imprints the knowledge in your head.
In fact I would say the book is actually a work of art in itself, and I really handle it with care as it feels more like an item of art than a text book - just wait until you see it. Jon Duckett has really put his heart and soul into this, whilst keeping it clean and accessible.
The structure of how HTML and then CSS is laid out in a form that is as much an easy read as a manual and I really didn't mind getting out my text editor and having a go at the examples as I went along. This is significant for me as HTML and CSS usually bore me to tears.
At last I have found a book I can learn from. And if I can learn from it then I reckon anyone can, young or old, beginner or computer programmer. At only £10 for over 500 pages it was also really good value, especially considering it is in full colour. I actually look forward to lending this to someone the way I would for a great novel I'd read that I wanted to share.
If you are confused about what book to pick up to learn HTML5/CSS3 then I don't think you can go wrong with this. It is a superb book and the best I have seen on the subject.
I don't have anything bad to say about this book!
I have successfully done this based on what I learned from this book.
My view is the learning style described as follows is effective:
The author explains the topics in the chapter.
At the end of each chapter there is an excerise where you can type in code relevant to the chapter and see a website type output.
I did these exercises and then made changes to the code so that I could learn to change things.
This worked for me and I have been able to customise one of the websites by changing and editing code.
