Great emphasis on topics other books skip over! July 12 2009
By Jeff Noble - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What I really loved about this book is the emphasis on topics most other web design books skip over such as planning, researching, getting content together to create a successful website. I'd recommend this to people just getting started learning web design or a seasoned professionals that just want to get more value out of their own website projects.

Extremely helpful book for a website owner Dec 20 2009
By Barbara N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for someone like me. I'm a photographer, and have a website which was designed and built by someone else. I do my own updating, and would eventually like to be able to do more of the design tweaks by myself.

The last section on publishing and site maintenance is especially helpful for my needs. It's got step by step directions that easily walk me through how to upload new files to the site. In addition to the step by step directions, all of the background information - like how ftp programs work - is written in such an engaging manner that I keep wanting to know more.

I'm sure I'll end up reading every page - especially the section on designing for the web, which will be helpful in assessing whether the website is accomplishing all of my goals. I'll also be pouring over the section on search engine optimization.

I think Web Design All-in-One is a great book for anybody who owns a website.

Great book for beginners Feb. 3 2010
By K. Deonaraine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I consider myself a beginner and this book really helped me get me up and running on designing web sites. Each section is to the point and doesn't assume too much, which is perfect for me. The chapters about HTML and CSS were invaluable. The parts about designing web graphics (Photoshop, etc...) were a bit above my head, I just use GRSites for that, but the search engine optimization tips were a real eye opener. I found going thru the book for hours, and learning new things in an enjoyable and organized way, the author definitely writes well. Great stuff!

Amazing, hands-on reference July 20 2010
By bghughes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This easy-to-follow, well-written reference is a must-have for anyone looking to develop a website, especially for those with experience in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, but not in Dreamweaver or other web software programs. I've owned this book for just over three weeks and it looks like it's been around for years with how much I've already used it to develop my own website. The chapters are invaluable to helping me understand the essential elements creating and launching a website, including CSS, testing pages, and announcing your website to the world.

this is just what I was looking for as a beginner web designer. It builds the foundation and builds from there, I know I will refer to this book over and over.
