I love this series! This is a great book to have for those who are learning to build websites or just a book to keep handy for reference. No need to look anywhere else!

The write up and reviews on this book give the impression that it is OK for beginners. Don't be fooled by the cute little dog on the cover! This is a geek book that goes into detail about HTML and enough techie jargon to make your head spin! As a beginner, I did not find it helpful. Actually got more help from the website where I bought my domain name, and they had a quick blog website set up that was a breeze to use.

I downloaded the ebook to my NOOK, and it won't open it. It gives me this message: "Error Dialog Sorry, cannot open this book". It gives no suggestions to help. I went to Kindle for PC and dnloaded it without a hitch. I'm glad I only got the NOOK sample, and didn't pay for the book. I'm afraid to try to purchase it, in case it still wouldn't open. I'd be out $15.
