    Building a Website for Dummies Book Review

    This, just like all other "Dummies" books, only takes you to the shallow waters. It doesn't go as in-depth as it could, however it gets you in the water, so to speak. It only gets you started, but is very helpful if you are a true beginner. Though most of it is common sense, there is some good information in here. It goes hand-in-hand with another book, "JavaScript for Dummies," because they are both geared towards making and maintaining a website.
