    Because I have had success with other books in the "for dummies" series, I bought this book; however, this book isn't for anyone that is a beginner. This book is for someone that is familar with HTLM, CSS & other codes. If you are familiar with building websites or someone that builds websites - then this book for you.

    If you are like me, a beginner in this arena of web building, please don't waste your time or money. I will ultimately give this book to a friend that builds websites for his reference library.

    I plan on buying a book that is catered to beginners for website building.

    I hope this review will help anyone in the future.
