Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Weaving a Web Site is a comprehensive and dynamic introduction to web programming that assumes no prior programming experience. The text begins with HTML and moves to progressively more complex languages: JavaScript, Perl, and Java. It contains over 200 programs chosen from a variety of topics designed to capture readers' interest and encourage them to use their imagination when developing web pages. Such topics include recipes, football terms, crossword puzzles, multi-language dictionaries, suggestion boxes, opinion polls, Shakespearean quizzes, and bird identification pages.

Weaving a Web Site emphasizes a hands-on approach that asks readers to participate in the design process of a web site. The book contains more than 1000 figures and 500 programming exercises designed to show readers how to translate their ideas into working web pages. Through an emphasis on the programming process, readers are shown how to develop progressively more complex web pages, while avoiding programming pitfalls and errors.

Distinguishing Features:
  • Covers concisely the following programming languages: HTML, JavaScript, Perl and Java.
  • Includes more than 1000 figures and 200 programs encouraging reader comprehension.
  • Emphasizes a hands-on approach that assumes no prior programming knowledge.
  • Extensively class-tested in a wide array of web programming courses.

Format: Paperback
I'm a former student of Dr. Anderson-Freed and I am currently a professional web developer. I have seen this book in two classes on web programming, the first time in a draft form and the second time in its current form. Having seen the errors and typos in the draft, and having pointed them out during class, I had hoped that the final print of the book would contain at least some of the corrections. Unfortunately, as another reviewer has pointed out, the book still contains numerous errors, typos, and just plain incorrect programming.
I still own a copy of her book because I have penned in corrections to many of the errors in the book. It covers a little bit of everything, and the little bit of reference I need for Perl and Java are met by this book and web references. However, I also currently own and recommend the HTML 4 Bible and JavaScript Bible, both published by IDG Books. I would recommend the Bible series of computer books over Dr. Anderson-Freed's book to anyone who requires a web-related programming reference. The same goes for IWU students who are taking her classes: don't buy this book. While her book contains many examples (many of which she uses in class), a good portion of her examples have code that does not produce the desired results. You would be better off reading another text and recreating the examples on your own.

This book isn't horrible. The guy above obviously is an ex-lover of the author and is none to happy. The book has excellent examples and walks through the basics of HTML, JavaScript, JAVA, and perl. After you have learned the languages it is awesome for using as a reference and refresher.

I used this text book in a class on HTML and Java Script. It was too riddled with errors to recommend as a good text book on programming. Previous classes have documented over a hundred errors in the text, and code samples; some minor, and some major. There are much better guides to programming than this book.

You may save money buying just this one book , but I did not find it money well spent.

This is an absolutely horrible, error ridden book. My college uses this book, with the knowledge how bad it is. The woman can't even get a logical true and false table correct! She does not even use the standard programing format in Javascript. If you want such garbage go ahead and buy it! There are other books that are more informative and without such numerous errors in the text.
