After reading Williams' excellent 'The Non-Designer's Design Book,' I was eager to tear into this book. I hoped for a text that would apply some of the principles outlined in 'Design Book' to the Web. Wrong! This is yet another 'Web design for Dummies' tome that doesn't seem to know what it wants to do. It succeeds neither as a good HTML primer nor a good design book. In addition, it contains some information that seems of questionable accuracy. Williams should stick to talking about design. As for a quality Web book, go with the standard: 'Web Design in a Nutshell.'
This book is full of easy to understand lessons about how to design and publish a web site. I appreciate the humor as well as the visual examples of web pages. The book demonstrates how to layout pages and more importantly, what to avoid!
This is written for non-designers, but includes enough substance to teach the fundamentals of good design. Ideal for the person who needs to make a good looking web site, but isn't making a living at coding HTML.
I'm currently getting started as a web designer and have studied HTML for a while as well as general design principles. I know a few computer teachers attempting to teach introductory classes to web design and they have had trouble finding information and a good book... This one's great for just that! It explains, in everyday english, the basics on how to get started designing a web page. This is great for people who don't know or want to have to know all the technical stuff right off the bat. Even some of the people I train on the computer and introduce the internet to (mainly farmers and small business owners or workers) would benefit greatly from the first few chapters in this book. It's a wonderfully written and designed book that clearly presents many of the introductory principles needed for web design.
