I can't say much more than the other reviewers, but I will say this:
Having very basic knowlegde of HTML and scripting, and after reading the first couple of chapters, I was able to start setting up my "practice" page. It's kind of a rush seeing what you created in a web browser, pre-publish of course :), and I'm only on Chapter 5. McFedries book is very page-by-page, with good explanations of the what's, why's, and how's. I actually look forward to each new step in the creation process. I have a couple of other books, and they have mispelled words, improper grammer, etc., point being McFedries and his team pay attention to detail. I highly recommend this book to anyone that thinks coding is beyond their reach. (Guess I had more to say than I thought)
One minor complaint is that it took me a LOT of extra time and phone calls to the web hosting company even once my HTML was all in place and my web page was ready to go. I had to coordinate for the domain name, web server, and ftp program to all be in sync with one another to actually get my page to show up on the net, and that is more difficult than it sounds for a neophyte. In the next edition, I would make that part a bit more comprehensive, perhaps better showing step-by-step how to get all those elements coordinated.
I would also maybe give provide suggestions on where I could find good beginner's resources for building common specific functions that require programming, such as message boards or info that comes up based on "drop- down" menu choices. I know that programming was outside the scope of the book, but it is very difficult for novices to figure out where to go next to implement simple programs, without wading through an endless sea of java text information sites geared towards experienced programmers.
All in all, I was VERY satisfied with the amount of useful, easy to understand info I was able to gain in a short time by reading this book.
