I bought this book quite a while back hoping to learn something new. All it mainly talks about is where to find links to other sites that look good but don't explain how they made them at all(may as well just look in Yahoo). The book also goes on a lot about java and vrml.<-Out Dated. Flash has just killed these two styles of programming. CS/SS-VBScript and pl-CGI or c/c++-CGI are not explained enough. If you need to learn about graphics, go to your photoshop and press F1. If you want to learn about internet programming, buy a book that will teach you.

for client side (browser programming)
beginner="web design in a nutshell"
next="inside dynamic html"
next="javascript bible"

for server side (server programming)
Beginners+ (window OS) (interpreted)-slow
Active Server Pages (asp-VBscript) "Active server pages 2 Unleashed"

If you understand c/c++: (all OS')(compiled)-fast
c/c++ Mark Felton's CGI Internet Programming with c++ and c

If you just want to get a little of the internet money and don't want to spend hours learning how to program, then buy a book on flash. It seems to be the software for the moment. What would take me hours to do in a Java Applet or JS/DynHTML, could be done in Flash in just minutes.
If you just want to have a better understanding about how the internet works, get a book that will teach you something while you read. If you've already got html under your belt, then you should look into the options I placed above....Spend your hours reading something worth the money you spent. eg: the above books.
Or just have a look online to get a better understanding then get the above books.
