5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Quality Very Helpfull Sept. 30 2010
By Camera Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased the three book set and they must have improved the paper quality the cover is a nice 80# gloss cover and the inside pages are 6o# text the quality is not a factor anymore the books are about 1/2 inch thick each. The content does contain a lot of the content avaiable online but it is nice to be able read it when I am not online and it makes a great reference. I am fine with the price for what I recieved I find the w3c schools site is very helpfull and figure even if I pay an extra dollar or two I am supporting a group the helps a lot of people learn web development. I wish it was avaiable on the kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the cost June 5 2012
By billwoos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I saw the post above bashing the quality and the content of this book. All I can say is - what a crock and thank goodness I went ahead and ordered this book. I was pleased to see that the book is well made, perfect size, and has great content. For those of you who, like me, have a Kindle or access to online textbooks know that a real book is often easier to read, mark up, highlight, and refer to. I know the Kindle is capable of those tasks and I love mine, but I really prefer a paperback for reference. This book is a good buy and has some great information between it's covers. Just my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matter of fact teaching book April 9 2013
By Ian Polman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Most books that teach some sort of programming seem to want to talk in volumes about something - presumably to fill lots of pages to make the book look thick and knowledgable. This book is small. But it is packed full of fact. No mucking about. No funny anecdotes. Just the facts. If you need to find out how a piece of code works, just look it up and the information is there in its simplest form. W3Schools also has a great web site with interactive examples to back up what's in the book. No bells and whistles, but all round very helpful.

By orange - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this is a beginner's book...

it gives you a hands on intro and covers the basics that every one interested in web programming should know...

i love that it's lightweight and i can take it with me while i'm doing laundry....

definitely worth the price and it's one of the best computer science texts that i own - there's no simpler and to the point verbiage than this...
