Bravo! This book is very well done.
Complete, easy to read, and very helpful, this book is loaded with useful insights. Steve Lines' pragmatic approach leads the reader from clearly presented concepts to well-implemented programming examples. The code he provides can easily be transplanted and used in many CGI applications. The included CD-ROM works on all platforms (Macintosh users are often left out!) and contains several important web development tools.
By no means is this text simply for beginners, although they will benefit the most from it.
Overall, this book is the very best resource available for developers of dynamic web pages
