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 bought the hard-cover binding version, after reading reviews saying that the paperback falls apart. The hard-cover is fine, although a bit heavy. This is not the kind of book you bring with you to read at a boring outdoor activity. It is just too heavy.
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.
The author has also provided you with the HTML and CSS code for all of the examples provided, so you can pull them up and edit them to see how each line of code affects the page.
As with many textbooks, it's more important that you complete the book and learn from it, rather than completing it for the sake of completing it. One thing I've done to ensure that I understand the concepts in the book is to use the code samples provided as a guide, but create my own HTML and CSS to illustrate the various concepts that are being covered. In other words, I mirror the author's examples with my own demonstration of them. Finally, when you get to the end of each chapter, the author gives you a sample that covers all the items reviewed in the chapter. What I would do is create each of these samples from scratch. Doesn't have to be an exact match (i.e. colors, margins can be different), but being able to duplicate the final page helps you retain what you learn.
Very well explained, easy to access, very good product.
There is incredible information in here and its easy to read. It provides clarifying differences (like div vs span elements) and gets you excited about HTML and CSS.
