From Booklist

Sinclair is a contributing editor to Multi media Reporter and has written books on online auctions, thin client computing, Web typography, and Web page design. This new guide is a straightforward, step-by-step, easy-to-use manual for individuals who want to build personal Web sites without having to learn and utilize HTML. Sinclair relies on Netscape Composer and Microsoft's FrontPage Express, the free programs that come with either the Netscape or Microsoft Web browser, and his advice will not benefit Mac users. Sinclair explains how to locate these free authoring programs as well as a free online graphics editor. He covers how to test Web pages, edit and improve text, add photographs and digital images, build links, create a navigation menu, choose a Web host and domain name, use animation, and encode audio and video files. In appendixes, Sinclair summarizes his advice in seven basic steps, and he offers more advanced instruction for those who do want to know about HTML. A final list suggests 14 applications for which one might put a personal Web site to use. David Rouse

From the Author

This book gets you off to a quick start and builds your confidence. It shows you some Web tricks. It leaves out some of the glitz, but it aims to provide you with the basics painlessly. It includes much of the fun, such as color photographs. But in the end, if you want to be a Web developer, you'll have to move on to another book. This is not a thorough bible about Web authoring. It's an introductory book.

Most people don't find making Web pages difficult, and this book convinces you of that by helping you make a Web page in the first chapter. If you don't want to be a Web developer but you would like to make some Web pages, this book will help. If you want to be a Web developer but you don't want to learn too fast, this book sets a modest pace and covers basic Web development techniques. The book requires that you feel comfortable using a PC, a Web browser, and a word processor.

This book doesn't require expensive software. The book features Netscape Composer and Microsoft FrontPage Express, both free Web authoring programs and both powerful yet easy to use. In addition, the book features the popular freeware IrfanView image editor, also powerful and easy to use. Finally, the book illustrates WS_FTP Lite, a freeware program you can use to upload Web pages to a website.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Jerry Warrington on December 8, 2000
Format: Paperback
Of the more than 200 books on the subject of Web Page Creation this one is the best. It quickly and easily shows you in succinct step by step examples how to use templates, make web pages really look good, how to add pictures, translucency overlays, etc. If you have ever thought about doing your own Web Pages, or if you are looking for a gift for a web enthusiast, this is the book to buy! It's an excellent investment!

I agree with the last review 100%.
I choose this one over the more technical books (I am a computer programmer), because I wanted to learn about the lastest web tools quickly. This book will get anyone up and running very quickly, limited computer skill required. The hardest part may be downloading all the tools you need. Contains a lot of information and explains topics very well and simply. Buy this book, you want by sorry!!!
