From the Author: Goals for this Book
Programming books can often look rather intimidating and uninspiring, but they do not need to be. We wanted to redesign the tech book and make it more accessible, relevant, and attractive to a whole new group of readers. The result is a book that feels more like a magazine and is enjoyable to flick through, and looks like it belongs in the graphic design section rather than the programming section of a bookstore.
- Large info-graphics are used to help simplify new or complex concepts
- Clean design and layout presents each topic on a new page for easy reference
- Printed in full-color, using a vibrant palette to distinguish different types of code
- Attractive code samples help you make beautiful web sites
This beautifully designed manual explains how to use HTML in a concise readable format...A wonderful resource. (.net, June 2012) A refreshing take on the subject. The title provides a great overview without feeling like a textbook. (Computer Arts, June 2012)

The build quality. Upon first time cracking this book open, you will feel how stiff and sensitive the binding is. I am very afraid to press down on the spine to get the book to lay down more flat to make reading words closer to inside the page simple. Judging by other reviewers, my fear is truly founded. But for now, all is intact. Will update if there are any changes to this current event...
Very well explained, easy to access, very good product.
After seeing all the positive reviews for this book I decided to give it a try instead and could not be happier. The layout makes sense and the chapters gradually build on the skills you learned in the last section so you always understand why each new bit of code you are leaning is important and where it fits in the overall design of the page.
An excellent beginner or refresher book in HTML & CSS. I would recommend it to anyone.
After the first half of the book teaching you HTML, you learn CSS. It is taught in the same way, teaching you the basics first, and then going on to more and more advanced ideas - again, all with example code and all explained clearly.
This book is one of the best textbooks I have found on any subject, not just computers.
