a must read for any designer!

I feel that this text is a must buy for any web designer! Web Design for Dummies is written in such a way that it's so easy to follow. Beginners surely wouldn't be confused or lost with it. Everything is practically spoon fed to you which some may think is a bad idea, but I believe that that's the way to learn! With step by step instructions, help tips and warning tips in the margins, and countless screen caps showing you EXACTLY what you should be doing is an awesome guide to becoming a designer. I love how this text is also written from a business aspect for those of you wanting to be an actual designer. Not only does it give you steps and tips of how to become a freelance web-designer but it also touches on the subject of dealing with clients which is also very important. Not only does it teach you how to make a high-quality web-page but also educates you on how to keep your clients coming back for more! Another thing I liked about this package is the bonus CD rom which contained trials of Dreamweaver, Flash and Photoshop which will only add onto the creativity and flair of your webpage. This guide walks you through on a step-by-step walkthrough through the entire web design process - from the drawing board to the published final piece.

what, are you kidding me?

no, i didn't buy this crap, i got a free copy at the blackhat conference in vegas, and left it there in my hotel room. every book like this is a joke, the sad thing is the guys who write this crap are actually getting a lot of money writing. it's an old, tired, subject and the author has no clue, just tries to cram it with useless "hacking" info. my friend had the source code to one of his exploits published in one of these books, it was easy for them to do since they didn't have this real name.. but why do they include exploits in the actual book? they don't explain them, and they are just printed on the pages... anyone who would buy the dumb book sure isn't gonna be able to understand.. what are people supposed to do? type it up in ms word? if you're reading the reviews to this book for any purpose other than to laugh, i pity you.

Forget the negative review of the guy from Tempe: if you're not interested in the math, you can make do with the descriptions and if you know enough math the descriptions are enough for you to reconstruct the algorithms. This is a fine introductory book to the subject.

Perfect book

I've just finished the book. I love it very much!The book is full of golden sayings from the beginning to the end. Some of the principles are just in my mind, but I've never summarized them, when I found them in the book, I was very excited. Most of the tips are very short, it is impossible for the writers give more information about the tip, perhaps we can't get much "knowledge" itself from the book, but we can learn the way to get "knowledge" from the book. We Chinese have a proverb: It is better to teach a person fishing than give him (her) fish. Well, this bookĄ¯s writers teach us how to "fish"!
