Consistent with other members of Peachpit's Visual QuickStart Guide series, this title makes wise use of side-by-side explanations and screen shots, as well as code snippets and their analysis. This approach gives readers the feeling that the authors are sitting by their side and showing them how to code scripts. Most subjects are handled with numbered steps, such as "Validating Zip Codes", and useful tips punctuate the text.

There are lots of practical examples and there is a companion site on-line where you can check out the examples and access the code for copy and pasting.
The language is clear and easy for me to understand, which really helps.
An average teacher shows you "how" to do it; a great teacher tells you "why" it's done that way.
The examples are very informative and cover a wide range of situations and techniques.
all by itself.
If you have never programmed a line of code in your life, this book will help get you started.
Don't be afraid of writing code that won't work; there's lots of places on the WWW that are full of experienced programmers willing to help.
This book is great place to start. :)
Open the book and go to the table of contents, find what you need, and start adding it to your Web pages. Screenshots and lines of code are on every page of the book with step-by-step guidelines of how to use and implement the script. You don't even have to type the code from scratch. Instead, go to the book's companion Web site to get the code and fix it up to meet your needs - a great time saver.
Chapter 7 - Forms and Regular Expressions show how to validate email addresses, file names, and URLs. It gives you a gentle introduction to regexes (regular expressions).Read more ›

It seems to me that most of these scripts don't work. I'm in IT and also a web site administrator, and I still can't get them to work as they are written. Read morePublished on May 10 2004
This is a good beginners book. Didn't get into really detailed programming but it covers enough for anyone starting out.Published on Oct. 24 2002 by R. Mercer
