superb value for money and very well written
on 18 August 2011
I am half way through this book now and I'm really enjoying it.
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 .
