Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I sprang and bought the book, even though it was written in 1997. Even in the year 2000, Black's book has true worth. Definitely not a beginner's book, and not for people who design just because flashy graphics look cool. This is for the true professional who wants to know how to design effectively for the web.
