A great book. Easy to follow and logically structured.
However, SAMS book is a complete revelation! It starts off assuming you know nothing and takes you through very methodically and without patronising you. It doesn't get bogged down in technical language, making it very easy to read. I am only a quarter of the way through the 24 hours but I've learnt so much since I started it yesterday. I even managed to publish a very basic but hierarchical website online last night. I'm not saying that everyone will be able to do that as quickly as I did, because as I said, I already had a basic knowledge due to the fact that I have my own blog and domain, and have been playing about with them for a couple of months. However, this is the first time I've ever managed to set up a site from scratch without the use of themes.
In my opinion, this is THE book to buy if you know absolutely nothing about HTML/XHTML and CSS. A great investment indeed!
The main problem about this book is that the added HTML 5 coverage is very limited indeed. Basically, they have added short notes about HTML 5 to the margins of various sections (so whole sections of chapters can be disregarded because of developments in HTML 5). This is not very useful and just makes the whole process of learning HTML quite confusing. For that reason I would choose a different book if I were starting again.

Well, it says 24hrs but it wasn't 24hrs for me. Just reading the book in 24hrs would be challenging, let alone putting the theory into practice. Read morePublished on 27 Jun. 2013 by shy
