    This was by far one of the worst Web Design/Development books I have ever come across. In no way, shape, or form, does the author delve into the fine details that comprises web development.

    This book is trivial at best, and only speaks to the philosophy of the future of web design rather than the inherent methodologies behind making your sites "future-proof". To put it best, this is a cookbook about the philosophy of cooking without the actual ingredients or recipe directions.
