"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

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)

I work in IT, but I've never really messed with HTML or CSS before. With that in mind, I spent a couple hours skimming through this and checking out the HTML lessons on w3schools, then downloaded Adobe Brackets and went to town. I may be pretty lame, but I've been having a ball with this stuff.
Very interesting material written well. I'd recommend this to anyone and everyone. Money definitely well spent.
Very well explained, easy to access, very good product.
Therein lies the problem; the binding is not strong enough to support the pages and the book fell apart after a week or so of use. I guess I'll have to tear out all the pages and put them in a ring binder as the volume is functionally unusable with the pages coming out in chunks.
I do like the approach however, as it complements my study of HTML and CSS done via online videos. It's nice to have a reference that goes beyond just a listing of HTML/CSS code elements.
The only small issue is that it was written when html5 was under development and although it covers many of the html5 features, the core of the book is not html5, especially with extensively covering subjects like flash videos. That is why an update would help a lot.
Having said all that, if I want to recommend a book for html and css, it would be definitely 100% this book. You can build your base knowledge with this and it does a great job at that, and later you will be able to extend your knowledge with many other available ways.
