From the point of a beginner where it comes to website coding, I find Mr. Jon Duckett's knowledge and understanding of HTML, XHTML and Java Script to be backup by obvious experience and an eagerness to share his knowledge in a concise and very readable manner. Before purchasing this book, I browsed through many other books on the same subjects and found Mr. Duckett's to be the one that connected in the manner that was important to me. There is a lot of information that is between the covers of this book; however, the ability to go over complex material and to have it on hand as future reference makes this book a winner from my viewpoint. A good teacher is not made by having all the knowledge in the world if the person is incapable to relating that knowledge on a level that is comprehensive as well as interesting to all students at every level of aptitude. This is not an easy undertaking, for either the teacher loses some by going over their heads or others by boring them with no challenge. Mr. Duckett successfully covers and completes his objectives in publishing this book, and I do not hesitate recommending it for those attempting to understand the complexity of web design and the coding it takes to produce a good web page.
