2.0 out of 5 stars This is a disappointment December 9, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I always assumed that 'for Dummies' meant for beginners, novices, rookies. This book is for the intermediate level web designer who's willing to make the software investment to go pro. I stretched the budget to get my domain name and web hosting. The book devotes many pages to the use of Adobe Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Photoshop, and barely mentions using content management systems like the one I get from my host. Those three Adobe products would cost me another $1,000 - and don't get me wrong, they're excellent, but I can't justify the expense. I am a beginner who only want one website that looks good and runs well. If you're like me, find a different book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Building websites for dummies May 21, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am very disappointed with this book as it is more about how Dream Weaver and Photoshop works than how to actually build the code to start a web site. If you don't look at ever part of the book you would not know that it requires you to have both of these expensive pieces of software to make this book work. If you have Dream Weaver and Adobe Photo shop then this book will be great for you. I have bought a much better book if you really want to learn the software necessary to build websites. You might try it . It is a For Dummies book as well . It is called : HTML5 and CSS3 for Dummies. That book is truly great.

2.0 out of 5 stars COMPLEX - CONFUSED - UNHELPFUL July 11, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Oh dear! The two authors were not sure what their goal was. The book falls unhappily between two separate and very different markets. Much of the language and terms used are aimed specifically at the professional website builders - and they are probably not "dummies." In terms of website building I am a true "dummy" (having built only 1 very simple website) and I had enormous difficulty with most of the content and language throughout this volume. I do not expect that in a true "for dummies" book. I cannot imagine this will be any help at all to the real novice who wants to learn how to build a website. It was written at a high level of technical language, has far too few helpful examples, wrongly takes some subject matter for granted, misses some steps in processes, and makes too many false assumptions about the reader's knowledge and experience. I expect the authors are technical experts. They have demonstrated however that they are certainly not experts in helping others to learn. Complex - confused - unhelpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Go-To book for our farm's website. December 30, 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this as my go-to guide to understand what my programmer was saying to me. He speaks fluent Computer - I do not. I felt a little less stupid after reading this. Also, it made me a more knowledgeable consumer. I was able to express some opinions on how I wanted the farm website set up that I would not have had if I had not read the book. It could also be titled "Owning a Website" for dummies.

This book helped lead me in the right direction on how I could get a website put together and up and running based on my knowledge of the subject. It's a combo book of some of the other ___ for Dummies books.
