When I began work on this book, I performed a search of Amazon.com for the phrase "Web Design." I found books on everything from HTML to XML, and from Web graphics to Web usability. What is the beginning reader supposed to think? Where should she begin in this huge list of possibilities? With a "beginner's guide", of course.
This book covers a lot of ground in a short amount of time. It is an excellent way to discover everything from HTML to XML and from Web graphics to Web usability -- ALL of which are important to Web design -- without having to read a million different books. The book covers all these topics in a succinct fashion, moving you from the beginning to end while you work on a real-world project.
With that said, this is neither "the second book in a series" or a series in itself. Web Design: A Beginner's Guide is an introduction into all of the facets of the extensive topic of Web Design.
So you don't have to read other books on the topic before reading this one, but you can expect to read other books after this one. The idea is that this book might help you determine where you'd like to focus your efforts in Web design and development.
If you're looking for a well-rounded book to aid in your discovery of this medium and get you started quickly on the right track, this is it.About the Author:
