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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for any skill-level, but essential for all beginners! [UPDATE,2019]
By Kelli Coffee on September 16, 2017
Excellent book for any skill-level, but essential to all beginners! The content is laid out in a very fun fashionable way that will hold the reader's interest. The content is clear, concise and well-ordered. I once believed that once you've seen one HTML+CSS book, you've seen them all, but this one is truly one of a kind. The paper quality and design is bar-none a graphical artist's dream.
HOWEVER...
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...

[update, 2019]
Rather late, but this is something that I feel is worth mention & may help others:
My copy is still intact (paperback) with no loose pages. Same goes for my hardback copy of the JS/SQ companion text. Both have been well-used during my autodidactic journey. The style-system Duckett has created here is what sets this text series apart from all other books I've read and own.
I still recommend this book, however, there is no such thing as "the perfect technical book." I feel there are a few crucial lessons missing from this text: a chapter on media queries (mobile-first approach) and a decent overview of a couple CSS frameworks. While Duckett does introduce the ability to control min- and max- widths, and he offers a section on liquid layouts, mobile-first responsive pages are, more or less, the standard of today. This is not a complaint, whatsoever, but just something I felt it lacked and could use in a later edition, perhaps.

STILL A 5-STAR RECOMMENDATION IN AUG. 2019!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind-Blowing content.... for front end developers
By Bini A. on August 8, 2017
Guys I had a basic understanding of html and css when I bought this book. And guess what, I was blown away by the contents. There was soooo much new stuff in this book that I didn't find on youtube tutorials. Trust me...if you want to start web designing carrier here is the base that you should step on. The writer had put so much effort on it. It is colorful and detailed. For me the best thing was there was NO JUNK on it. Straight to the point. No zigzag and crapy stuff. This is how all books should be made. Thank you Jon. And please write some more on advanced levels. jQuery, Java-Script, github, Backbone Js, Angular JS, Unit testing....all you can cover. And please stick to the easyness and straight to the point. God bless
