When I began reading and working through this book I was a true novice. After having followed studiously, the advice given in this book I feel well acquainted with HTML and CSS and am able to put a working and functional website together without much thought. Now I am looking to find a guidebook on how too make exciting graphics to take my new skills to the next level.
I'm very satisfied with the book overall although, as a dyslexic I perhaps wasn't annoyed by it but even I managed to notice a few typos. Perhaps this can be addressed? Apart from that I'm very grateful for the insight and knowledge that I have taken away with me! Cheers matie!
Good but too many spelling mistakes!!!
Book avoids the use of jargon and if used, appropriate explanations are given. Starts with a little bit about the Internet and World Wide Web. The only downfall is the amount of spelling mistakes you come across as you go deeper into the book which becomes very frustrating! It's very unprofessional and seems like the book was typed up and printed into books straight away without having been proofread! Overall ok but wouldn't read a second time.

……..while…..standing out of doors you see a string, directly in front of you, tightly stretched at eye level. Both to the left and to the right that string extends out into the atmosphere, through this planetary system and out of the universe. It just keeps going. It possesses no curvature which would eventually result in the ends of that string rejoining at some point. It is, instead, absolutely straight and it appears to come and go forever.
Directly in front of you on that string is a tiny dot. You almost need a magnifying glass to see it. Imagine that this dot represents our current paradigm…our matter, energy, space and time setup….containing all the rules of function and existence within the known universe. As far as you can perceive, it’s everything that is. Picture an arrow pointing to that little dot and next to that arrow you read “YOU ARE HERE.”
