I build websites for a living and I hand code almost all of the static ones. I bought this book for my wife and worked through it with her, so that she could help with general coding, and was taken back by how well the subject is tackled. It is a fun book that delivers a good depth of information and in a manner that sticks with the reader. I didn't have to supplement any of the explanations with more information, and the book did a far better job than I could have done at explaining the basics.Please understand that this book does not cover every aspect of the subject, and will not make you an advanced web coder, but it will equip you with the ability to design a decent web site and to delve much deeper into the subject without being put off by more technical aspects of the business. After finishing this book, the only thing you will lack is experience, and that of course is as far as any book can take you. If I taught this subject to students, then this would be the course text book.
