Customer Review:

By Geoffrey Walker, reader review from Amazon.co.uk

“If you want a one-stop guide to everything you need for establishing your web presence, then look no further. This book is packed with solid advice, excellent, easy-to-follow technical overviews, and enough coverage of code and mark-up to get you started. But it is probably at its most useful if you are using a WYSIWYG editor to build your own site, or retaining the services of a professional designer. The presentation is first-rate, the writing clear and accessible and the author neither treats you as an idiot or as a geek-in-the-making. When, in the past, I have bought similar books I have generally not been entirely happy. This is the first one where I have felt I have struck pure gold. And it’s not too long or too expensive. Very highly recommended!”
