5.0 out of 5 stars Oh just get it! You will learn something new, February 24, 2007
Get it, read it, and I guarantee you will learn something new. And it doesn't hurt to reinforce the stuff you already know.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of book on Web Design, February 24, 2007
As a professional web designer, I really appreciate and relate to where Andy Clarke is coming from in this fantastic book. Web Designers are the best of both left and right brainers. We have to be logical when it comes to content and coding (not to mention business objectives, user profiling, competitive analysis, and PM, but that is a topic for another time), but we also have to be very creative when it comes to front-end/GUI design and communicating thru design. Clarke touches on all subjects related to what a typical web designer goes thru from best practices to workflow to inspirational stuff.

That being said, I think the title is a little misleading. If anything, the subtitle would have made a better title "The Fine Art of Web Design (using Standards)."

This is NOT a book for beginners who want to learn Standards. You would be better off getting Dan Cederholm's two books or Andy Budd's CSS Mastery (though I guess that is not for beginner's either ;)

If you're looking for a different angle, get this book. In the end, this book will teach you something new, be it a new method, new technique, or reinforce best practices.
