    ONE OF THE BEST OF ITS KIND -- SUPERB!

    This book is designed for moderately experienced web designers who want to take their skills to a higher level by applying the enhanced web designing techniques and procedures that this book so aptly teaches and demonstrates. By using clear and compelling examples,most competent and ambitious web designers can readily apply the stunning lessons that are given in each chapter of this book successfully and achieve impressive results. Nervous novice web-designers be warned, if you cannot even understand the terms and topics that are listed in this book's table of contents, this book is definitely not designed for your current skill level and aptitudes. This author possesses awesome visual, verbal,and technical skills. Bravo!
