Whilst I normally steer clear of this kind of book, I saw it in a local library and thought I'd have a look, thinking there might at least be a few useful tips. Unfortunately, I was not only disappointed on the tips front, but in the general presentation of this book. Like a previous viewer, I was left rather perplexed as to exactly who the book is aimed at. The blurb suggests it is designed for people planning to build professional, rather than personal websites, and yet the content never quite seems to match up. At once Lopuck suggests that when providing designs for clients you should delegate to members of your team (also dummies, presumably?) so that the designs reflect different interpretations of the requirements, and a few pages later, something as mundane as copying and pasting images will be covered.

The book is so riddled with such strange juxtapositions that it really ends up being of very little use to anyone. Real beginners will be sorely disappointed by many of the chapters, which assume either a background in print design, or that the reader is already a member of a web design team (begging the question, why they should be reading a book purportedly for dummies), or perhaps that the reader already owns software such as Dreamweaver, Fireworks or Photoshop. More experienced readers may find a few useful tips, but I should imagine have already covered the key sections of this book elsewhere, and will only be insulted by the more mundane chapters on the vagaries of web adaptive palettes or font types.

Sometimes a Dummies book is just what one needs. If you know nothing about a subject and you need to led step by step so that after a while you can comprehend what the subject is about then go for a dummy. This one taught me that I simply do not have the time to devote to this subject. That is very valuable knowledge.

Very difficult to identify who this book is actually for...a web dummy who wants to start his own web design business is my best shot. Well, if you are such a dummy then I'm afraid a dummy you will remain after reading this book. I found the 'Help' pages in Fireworks and Dreamweaver sufficed; this book added nothing. It will however insult your intelligence.

This is a good and very interesting book. It has taught a novice a lot about the Internet and what it can do.

I was looking for a book that was for absolute beginners for someone who had no one to teach them and this helped allot.

Excellent book for information about all apects of web site construction. Although not much on HTML. Also excellent guide to running your own web site development business.
