This book is certainly a true gem, and I would say it is one of the best Dummies books I have purchased.
Andy Harris has a smooth way of writing and is very funny in places.
Would definetly recommend this book to any new web designer or even intermediate professionals.
The chapters in each book are broken down into small sections so that you don't have to read them through in one go. If you enjoy planning like me this is particulary useful for timetabling your study. Like most dummies guides i've read though the onus is on the reader to do their own experimentation with the information they are given. I generally do my own versions of the demonstrations and make notes before moving on.
complicated but the first few chapters are sufficient to be able to write decent
web pages. After that I think that experience in computing would help to understand
some of the topics covered.
I understood a lot of web development already but I wanted to start learning from scratch to fill in the gaps.
This book methodically steps you through the basics of the web, but avoids going into superfluous details that you don't need to start off with.
It's written in a friendly and interesting style and I haven't found any typos or errors which IT books can sometimes be prone to !
The author clearly has experience at actually teaching the subject which makes all the difference.
The included cdrom has all the sample code on it, playing with the code and making it work on my own system really builds my confidence !
This book is very good value for money and I really can recommend it if you want a good place to start learning about this exciting topic.
I'll update this review when I've finished !

Have read most of this book now ( just going to start the Graphics editing bit tomorrow)
I have seen one or two typos since my first review but absolutely nothing too annoying.
This book has a 2nd purpose as a 'tool kit' or ' cook book' for when you actually start building sites.
I still say this is a great value book and I would heartley recommend it .
