4.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners! March 3, 2011
By whim
This a great place to start if you are new to web creation and design. This book does not go into a lot of detail, but it contains enough information (on 9 different subjects) to get you started. And then, if you want more in-depth information, you can go on to a more specialized book. And I'm sure they'll have a "Dummies" book for that. This book is really meant for people who are at the very beginning of the learning process when it come to web creation. It will give you enough of an idea about the different options available for creating web pages to help you make your decision as to which direction to take. If you already have some experience and are looking for refining your skills, then I'd recommond you skip this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Ok, Was hoping for more April 27, 2012
I've been working through this book and have found it mediocre. The book doesn't flow properly, examples are weak and the writing style is a bit lacking as well. Overall it's not bad, but I wouldn't buy it (I borrowed it from the library). I wouldn't rely on this book on its own to learn HTML, CSS, JS etc. Be sure to get other supplementals if this is your first crack at learning this.
I think a lot of people will get sucked into the '9 Books in 1' line, but really its about the length of a normal programming text.

I have authored several books, focusing on two very different aspects of my life and professional focus. On the faith front, I am author of "The Expeditionary Man", "The Myth of Happiness", and several "For Dummies" books designed to make meaty truth easily approachable for postmodern readers. These books include "C.S. Lewis & Narnia For Dummies", "Christianity For Dummies", and "Christian Prayer For Dummies".

On the technology front, I have authored several web tech books as well, such as "Adobe AIR For Dummies", "XSLT For Dummies" and "Building Facebook Applications For Dummies".

I work as Senior Developer for Maark, a strategic and interactive B2B marketing firm in Boston. Previously, I was V.P. of Product Development at NetObjects, an Internet software company, as well as inventor/architect of NetObjects ScriptBuilder.

I graduated from Taylor University and pursued graduate studies at American University. Though a native Hoosier, I now live in Princeton, Massachusetts with my wife and three boys.
