Very well written book. Unfortunately let down by the binding. I'm barely half way through my first read, enjoying it too, but sadly the pages are falling apart. I am not a careless reader, but this is a big let down for me. Jon is very good at explaining concepts, with good examples for a beginner, and good illustrations too. The accompanying website is also good for reference. But the people doing the binding need to go back to the drawing board and improve their workmanship. They can do better than this. If I had known I would have probably tried the hardcover version in the first instance. The content is certainly worthwhile.

Revised:
After writing to Nick Mannion at Wiley Publishing last week I'm happy to say my copy was promptly replaced with a new hard cover copy. I can safely say the response has been five-star.

Now 'THAT' is how you present & teach in a book !! Brilliantly laid out, very engaging, and great content.
Having "Looked Inside" all the other JS books on sale here (literally all of them), and having been dismayed by the awful old-school style of layout (huge wide paragraphs, no color coding, very poor side notes....) ... I am genuinely delighted to see this book is full of colour, and has a really modern layout to present the content. A great job from both the Author and the Publisher.

Written and presented in a very refreshing style - this is like no other programming book I have seen before. The examples in the book do assume existing knowledge of HTML and CSS.

I'll definitely be buying more of this range.

Love this book. Clear and detailed guide, for starters or for those who want to revisit basic concepts, but also go further and master their front end skills. Amazing visuals, great quality paper, and print. Totally worth it.

Great book for starting out, I bought this with the JavaScript one also.
Easy to read, good in depth explanations which can be extrapolated and used to build skills.
