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)

Very well explained, easy to access, very good product.
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...
Jon does an excellent job with providing easy writing and aesthetically pleasing visuals, breaking down practically everything there is to HTML & CSS on a step-by-step basis. This has quickly became my #1 book on the shelf to refer to when I'm stuck on a website build, or seeking to further improve on my knowledge with it. It's such a thorough read that I've always found something new to learn about and add onto my arsenal.
The money I've invested on purchasing this book has easily flipped over for me in my first service sales.
Thank You Jon for producing such a great book!
About 2/3 the way through the book the authors begin your studies with CSS. Since CSS is such a vital part of the web programming these days I sort of wish these chapters would have been moved further forward in the book. I was looking to get the HTML and CSS experience more or less simultaneously, so as soon as I was comfortable with the basics of HTML I skipped ahead to the CSS chapters and worked backwards.
I've had so many books on computer software and programming that it is impossible to keep them all. This is one of the few that I not only kept but keep going back to.
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.
