From the Inside Flap
Know Your Onions: Web design will show you how to get your head around web design without getting your hands dirty in code. Other books say they are about web design and then harp on about code. There is no code in this book, only the hidden secrets that will make you an excellent web designer and very popular. The book reads in a conversational style and is more like have having a chat with a bloke that knows his stuff than any kind of 'how to' manual.

I wasn't disappointed. Like the first, this book is a great resource for those who are starting out in their web design career or indeed, those who've been doing it for years (like me!) and need a refresher and some new tips.
I did wonder how useful the book was going to be before I read it. The goal posts are forever changing when designing for the internet so I was worried the content would become outdated within a few months... I needn't have worried though as this book concerns itself with the conventions and principles of web design and the processes a designer should go through rather than preaching about what's cool at the moment. In fact, there's nothing 'preachy' about this book, it's a good approachable tone of voice thoughtout. I found the chapters on navigation and colour particularly useful.
I can honestly say that reading this book taught me lots of new tricks, gave me lots of inspiration for ways of approaching future projects and was a really interesting read. It looks fantastic too which for someone who judges a book by their cover is an important thing.
An easy 5 stars from me.
Its another great read. Solid amounts of knowledge but in an incredibly approachable way due to the some of the tongue and cheek style writing. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
The only problem I have is that, having read the Graphic Design version i noticed a large amount of it has been copy and pasted. A joke is even made about it one point in a section. Thats fair enough for one section that applies to both areas. But later in the book I noticed more and more parts that were absolute copies of the text from previous book down to the same jokes...
