Great resource for beginners, but not for a complete novice
Pros: Easy read. Helpful methodologies. Good references.
I have to admit that I found the format of this book interesting. The writers' tried to inject a lot of character, color and some lightheartedness into something that can become very dry reading. Some aspects becoming tiring after a while, but an overall good job. There are some good strategies here. The books delivers good pointers on how to handle information architecture, lay out a web page and color theory. I also appreciated that the book was sprinkled with links to great online resources for site designers and ideas on how to moved forward once you've read the book.
Cons: Needs more meat
This book is great for folks needing to build simple web sites. That being said, I wish it could have touched a little more on the back-end, server side of developing a web site. It did touch on how to build a blog, but I would have like more discussion on database technologies and how to build an application.
Still a nice job and I learned a few things.
