As a Sophomore Computer Science student in College one of my classes requires this book.

I'm glad the professor decided to use this book as it is a very easy read and contains a lot of information that is useful in web design. However, this isn't something that you can learn by reading through it in its entirety. I find it most beneficial to read the sections that I want to actually work on. If you want to actually practice JavaScript, then read the section, or else you'll forget everything if you just try to absorb all the knowledge without applying any of it.

I recommend skimming the chapters as you'll know what's possible. That way, when you think of something you can refer to the pages that contain that skill to learn.

Highly recommended!

I have used several Deitel books and I like the high level approach they take to instructing. It gives you an intro to web programming but it certainly won't make you an expert. They provide a lot of resources for deeper dives into many of the programming topics and you will definitely need to use them to get proficient with HTML5, CSS3 and especially Javascript.

My one major disappointment with this book is that it is not in color like the other Deitel books I have used. I find the color coded text very helpful when looking at the code samples. For $100 I would expect better production quality for the book. You can download all of the code samples and your HTML editor will color code the files, but I would like to see it in the book as well.

Really this is not a good quality book in terms of nice colored pages and the pages are so thin the slightest rough turn and it is torn. Compared to its predecessor a few years ago "EBusiness and ECommerce" and Java How to program and Visual Basic .net (yes i was a big Dietel fan) which had full coloured pages and nice glossy tough pages. The content also leaves a lot to be desired, they just breifly touch on all the topics listed, they give the look that the book really covers everything about web site design but really not. Waste of money, you can get cheaper books with lots more information and details. This black and white book really is like reading a newspaper, so disappointed for over $112.00 US they could have given a little more. It covers in good amounts HTML and Javascript but everything is really very little and jumbled with other things. It kind of fits in for beginners but nothing more than that.

This is not the ideal book for self study. The text does not contain sufficient information to complete all the assignments, I had to do external research. I wouldn't have chosen this text if it wasn't required class material.

LECTURERS PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS AS A COURSE BOOK

I have lots of problems with this book.

First at least 5-10% of these PEARSON books are so badly manufactured that their covers disintegrate. Mine started to go about a week after I bought it. The plastic lamination (the stuff that makes it shiny) starts to peel off. I have NEVER seen this before and both my lecturer's copy and mine suffered this problem (in fairness most did not). This means that my copy is now so tatty I cannot resell it at my university's buyback. I contacted PEARSON (a huge and honorable old British company) and heard nothing back.

But that is not all. The book itself is at best a 2.5 star (the cover drags it down).

The worst authoring problem is Deitel introduces concepts out of order.

In chapter 5 or 6 he will use code that is not explained until chapter 9 or 10 - almost without any explanation so you copy code by rote..

He uses ludicrously complex multi-page scripts to explain a simple points (he has an affinity for dice rolling that gets in the way hysterically in one place). Really daft.

The worst learning problem ( and this is NOT just a problem with this book) is the poor choice of variable names. This might sound trivial but can increase your study load by 30-120%

It is sooooo confusing when you are learning a computer language when variables are named like functions/methods etc - Is "pageview" a variable or a function or method etc. On some occasions he forgets to define variables in Javascript (haven't we all) which makes things even more confusing.

I am currently using this as the required textbook for my Internet Programming class. This has to be one of the worst textbook that I have ever used. My main problem is that the authors have not done a good in explaining the concepts or the examples. It's very difficult to learn just by reading the text and I am somebody who has taken few other computer programming courses and know few things about coding.

This is stupid. I bought an eInk kindle, and while I can have other color books on my eInk screen (barring all pictures), I was tricked into renting this book just to refund it again 5 minutes later. Why are there any books that aren't supported on the eInk Kindles???
