“I’ve never believed a book on HTML could be so simply written, with beautiful and captivating illustrations to guide one through each part of creating a fabulous, error-free webpage. This book, HTML in easy steps by Mike McGrath is more than just a typical HTML beginner’s guide on creating a perfectly correct organized script tag to create a well-read page for all eyes to admire. Of course, simple is fine, but sometimes instead of being just a simple, barebone outline of a webpage, having those additional features that you can make use of to build a more intriguing, colorful, illustrated, and engaging page or site for your visitors to want to come and see.

Additionally, the book itself isn’t a super huge, 1000 page book on HTML, but even without so many pages and being under 200, you are getting a complete updated guide that allows the reader to create pages well established and related to the up-to-date designs. In addition to learning more about HTML, you also learn how to add a bit more engaging design to the page, such as adding Python, a Canvas, links, buttons, slots, video, audio and so much more! Plus, each piece of information in this book is covering these topics with the illustrated examples, such as the correct code to use and the placement of these tags.

Unlike many other books, this is directed towards those of all ages. I didn’t find it just suitable for beginners, even though it’s stating in the title to be an easy step guide for newbies. Rather, it’s more for all ages and levels, from a young to older person, beginner, or even an expert. No matter the level and time of interest, this book can assist in current updates with HTML, allowing one to build-up some new skills, and help even a first-time learner to create webpages. I additionally want to add that this book may be easy, hence the title name In Easy Steps, but it does pack the book with such exciting complex features, which instead of being harder to initiate, are just as simple to create as it is to do the first steps of HTML. Even without a computer, one can use a notepad or just read the book and go through the code to see how it works.

To tell you the truth, I’ve always been fascinated by working with HTML. Especially, when I love to write on my site, create fun pages for my personal gain, and being able to show off my new creative fun games. I never thought of how much more fun it is to create my own pizzazz for a webpage, personalizing it my way, and just how exhilarating it is to go through the entire process and look back at the finished work. I am so thankful for this book to help me build such an extraordinary page easily!

Of course, there will be times I forget. So like many, I’m not perfect and I can’t always remember certain procedures when it comes to HTML and many other computer coding programs. Especially, when my mind is remembering many other things or not working as best as it could be. Therefore, a guide like this, with steps by steps of information and an easily organized book with labels in colored sections and content to help you discover that forgotten piece that may need to be reviewed over again, till it sinks in.

Lastly, I can’t find this book to be in any way disappointing. It’s full of useful guidance, which makes it easy to follow steps and additional source code that you can download for free to get you started right away. What a splendid way to learn and become a Pro webpage designer with just this one book!”
