The author spends the first 118 pages sharing a pretty basic (and decidedly unsexy) overview of the non-aesthetic aspects of website design including more than a fair share of vague and sometimes inane generalizations; e.g., on page 97: "Make your color choices wisely..." Wisely? If I knew how to do that, I wouldn't have spent $40 on this book. And on page 100: "If your eyes feel happy, then go for it." And clap your hands, if you know it.

Then suddenly in the space of 10 pages the author presents his final website design with detailed rationale, plunging from a 10,000 foot overview to a 20X dissecting microscope inspection. I only wish I could have understood what he was talking about as he peered through his lens.

And where in all this is the "Sexy" promised in the title? The author seems to think the font Museo is "a very sexy font" (page 127), and also, generally speaking, trying anything "a bit out of the ordinary" (page 128). Yes, I suppose a bit of judicious rebellion has a certain beauty to it.

On a positive note, the book is only 146 pages long. My eyes didn't feel happy most of the way.

If you ever watch the TV show Horders and find it inspirational then this book is for you.

There is nothing "sexy" about the results of his website design goals. There is nothing elegant either. This is all about how to clutter up a home page.
