Useless book, don't waste your money


This is the worst technical book I've ever read (and I've read thousands in my career).It starts with 150 pages of advocacy: why it's a good idea to design with web standards. Mr Zeldman: if I wasn't already convinced that designing with web standards was a good idea, why would I buy a book called "Designing with Web Standards"?The author is one of those humor-impaired people who think they are witty. Example: "If changing tag fashions were all there was to it, ...this book would be filled with delicious tofu recipes. Like tofu honey pie with blueberries. Yum! It's even better if you use cream cheese instead of tofu. And sugar - lots of sugar. And butter and eggs - don't forget the eggs."If you enjoy reading drivel like that, you might like this book. Perhaps it should have been titled "Jokes that never made it to the Tonight Show". But if you want to read about designing with CSS and XHTML, don't waste your time on it.

I have never laughed so hard...


when reading a technical book. You will find yourself busting out with "that's so true it's hilarious" laughter fits. It is truly amazing to me how we can be such "designer's and engineers" when building our own websites, but such "end users" when using other's websites. I have always had the "Don't make me think" frustration underlying many website (and software for that matter) experiences and frequently my website feedback and reviews would reflect this sentiment.

This book will prove itself to you because Steve causes you to draw on your own experiences as a web user to understand what your users want from your site.
