"Do you need to learn HTML and CSS quickly? Get this set." - by Yeng C.
This is likely a premature review, but I have just finished the HTML and CSS book. This review will be revised as necessary once I finish this set, but I have to say: what an amazing read. I have previous experience programming in R and Python, and found the exposition to be very coherent and very clear. About 10 hours through reading this book, I could actually read and understand most HTML code on a webpage. I have experience here and there having to write simple HTML pages on the fly, but it's nice to finally -understand- what the code is doing and have a good idea on how to structure a web page. Highly recommended for people who need to learn HTML quickly and don't have time to Google absolutely everything! The CSS section is just as great, but it will take longer than 10 hours to go through. ... full review

"Great book for newbies" - by MartinB
It's a very good book and I truly enjoyed reading it. Though I have to say that it didn't go far enough for me. I think it's perfect for a beginner though, it gets you started quickly.

"Good book but too focused on Dreamweaver" - by Juan Diego
The book is a good tool for beginners, such as myself. However, it supports a very important portion of its explanations on Adobe Dreamweaver. For first time learners such as myself, who don't happen to own that Software, this becomes a nuisance, since you fail to receive the complete explanation or concept, and instead get the "it comes automatic in Dreamweaver" alternative.

"Excellent Instruction" - by Ben (Chattanooga, TN)
I really like this book. A lot. The information is fantastic and will have you rolling in no time, but the layout really is something else. This is one of the most pleasantly designed books I've ever encountered, and I do a ton of reading. If you're looking at the page count and feeling intimidated, don't. There's a lot of open space on most of the pages, and the actual text you're working with is short and sweet.

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.

"Great resource, but needs to be edited" - by D. Meyer
This is a great resource for putting together your scope for your website. I learned a lot and will be creating the step-by-step brief that Mr. King outlines.

I would give it five stars if Mr. King gets an editor to fix the hundreds of typing mistakes in the book. He credits someone for “line editing”, but I am not sure what exactly she did for her fee. No, a comma and a period are not interchangeable.

"Happy talk must DIE!" - by TwoNiner
I work for a small business that constantly redesigns our websites because management, marketing and development can't decide on a single aspect of our website. Everyone thinks their own ideas are the fruit of eden so all we do is talk in circles for hours on end. I found this book very helpful (especially with the political problems within my company) because it cuts out the "I think blah blah is best because I'm the coolest person in the world and my opinions are better than yours" and gets you focused on "this is what works best because it actually works for real people". This book can give you actual support behind your opinions in a meeting about a website because everything is based on usability. Web navigation, layout, instructions and concise content are a few examples of topics covered.
My favorite quote of the book is: ... full review

"Fantastic text for beginners" - by Joshua D. Washburn (Chicago, IL USA)
I am new to the web design world. I chose this text to learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for myself so that I could teach it to my students. I am so thrilled with everything about this textbook. Printing, layout, content, exercises, etc. The author has done an excellent job at making a complex subject simple to understand. I would highly recommend this text to other teachers.

Many of the standard textbooks out there are incredibly expensive and boring. This text makes learning easy and fun.

"Well-written and practical introduction to Web Site Design" - by Tim Bardwell
Wendy Willard's credentials indicated a degree from Art Center College of Design. That was one of the reasons I bought this book as I wanted advice from one of the "creatives" about how to go about designing an interesting web site. Although I have 30+ years of experience in IT and hi-tech, being stared in the face with the reality of: "just how do you produce a compelling web site in 60-days? --with no experience?"..... that had me really intimidated. The book exceeded my expectations; it is well thought-out, practical, personal and walks the reader methodically through the entire cycle of Planning-->Designing-->Coding-->Going Live. It not only addresses the aesthetic considerations, but is full of do's & don'ts (from practical experience) regarding design considerations affecting performance and visual presentation. The author provides many screen shots from sites under discussion, and the text is loaded with links to sites that provide supplementary information. Well worth the price.
