This book gave me a very good understanding of the topics related to web site development. I wasn't interested in actually developing a site, I was more interested in learning more about the mechanics of site development. I like the way the book is split into 4 mini books that lead the reader through the subjects.

The three platforms are discussed (PC, MAC, LINUX) and example code is prevalent throughout the book. The reader can follow along and code the examples; which I found to be great fun.

Bottom line, I recommend this book as a source of knowledge on introduction to web site mechanics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good For Beginners! Dec 1 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a C++ developer with industrial experience.
I've purchased this book some months ago and I'm now reading into it to learn the basics about web developments.
I think it is a great investment if you know close to nothing about the subject, which is building dynamic web sites with database support.
The text is clear and the chapters are reasonable in length. Hence the reader will not get bored nor he/she will become discouraged.
This book will prepare the potential internet applications developer for starting their own projects.
It will give them the basic knowledge in HTML5/CSS/JavaScript/PHP/MySQL to proceed on their own and to extend on the acquired skills.
After reading this book, you can continue reading more specialized books covering more details on, say, JavaScript or PHP to improve your skills but you will already know the basics.
I highly recommend this book for beginners as you will not need 4-5 different books to cover all the topics.
This book will do it for you and for such an awesome price, it's a great buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly revised book with bad samples Sept. 19 2013
By Russell - Published on
This is a fairly good book for the simplicity of learning HTML and CSS, however as you go further along the book. There are many problems with the sample codes provided, especially within the Javascript. This is a very new book (April 2013). The book is not outdated, so it is not acceptable to have bad sample codes for such a big portion of the book. The error in samples has caused me to resort in google searches for proper instruction, which is quite redundant as I bought this book to avoid learning of the web. Bottom line: if you don't mind the non-working sample codes in the book and are willing to search online to compensate, then you can give this book a try.

1.0 out of 5 stars Errors in sample code July 27 2013
By highinthemountains - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good overview, easy to read, but definitely could use some proof reading. There are errors in the sample code provided in what could have been the neatest part of the book, how to create a members only website. To top it off, the site they give at the beginning of the book for technical updates is a dud.

You can't really provide a programming book with sample code, that has errors in it, and expect people to want to purchase it. There's a lot of other good options out there too. Good thing I purchased them at the same time as this book, so I could reference those instead. If this book gets proofed and updates released, I'd consider changing my review.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad...easily digestible July 3 2013
By R. Smith - Published on
pretty decent overview of the core php js mysql subjects, including jquery. Nothing too deep, but it hits all the main areas.

I have certainly read worse.
