1.0 out of 5 stars What is this?!, October 24, 2013
By 
I bought this book looking for practical guidance with issues I come across in HTML or CSS. I could hardly read the book, due to its terrible grammar and lack of sentence structure. For example, "Working with templates has always been rewarding because it allows you to capture the design that you want in an effortless manner more so when you know how to work at them." Seriously, it really says that. On a technical note, the book is badly outdated, even though the copy I have was printed in January of 2011. It refers to Netscape many times and never even mentions Chrome. And numerous times the book refers to XHTML as the up-and-coming code, which is practically obsolete. In defense of the $19.95 I spent on it, I hoped there would be something I could take away from reading it, so I did muddle through. The most painful thing about trying to read it, is that it is extremely redundant. The author restates the same information over and over and over throughout the book. The whole thing could have been written in 10 pages instead of 154. The back cover says. "Buy this book....you won't be sorry." (Yes, he even used four periods in leu of an elipsis...) I would add to his statement, "You'll be embarrassed you ever bought it. Or worse yet, that you ever read it--or tried to." I urge you to NOT buy this book. I think Charles White must be laughing all the way to the bank.
