    1. O'Reilly Publishing provided me access to an electronic copy of this book for review purposes.Matthew writes this book as if the reader has no previous experience with coding and even no experience with really understanding how the web works, i.e. how servers render webpages and understanding how a URL works. So if you have lots of experience with these areas then this book probably isn't for you. If however, you've never designed a webpage before or it's been a long time since you've coded this [...]

    2. Excellent book. A very solid intro to HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript, although I really don't see why you would need an advanced book on those first 2 topics i.e. after this book, some good web sites could probably give you any advanced material you'd need, like looking up a word in a thesaurus only when you needed it for an essay.

    3. The Javascript and multimedia chapters are baffling for the beginner, although the rest of the book is very well written and understandable

    4. This book is a decent introduction to many topics related to web design; too many topics, in my opinion. I expected the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, but a large part of the book teaches how to use Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, and other sites and services, which seemed beyond the scope of building a website. It also covers website promotion (including SEO, analytics, and community-building), monetization, and multimedia.The book is full of clear, understandable code snippets and screenshots. It pres [...]

    5. While a little miffed at because they highlighted this edition when the newer edition had been out for a while, I didn't discover that till partially through the book. Put together as most Missing Manuals, where the next chapter builds greatly on the preceding chapter, it also has information that is decades oldML, the building block of the web, has been around along time, and the web is fifteen years and more now. Even at the time of the book, ten to twelve years in, rehashing the building blo [...]

    6. "Creating Web Sites: The Missing Manual" is a well written and, at times, amusing overview of current web site creation technology. MacDonald successfully makes a great effort to keep the book lighthearted and flowing while still providing enough information to allow a beginner to use the various technologies and create a page. He also made very good decisions on what material to winnow out.I have developed web pages and hand coded html off and on for over a decade. But I picked up this book in [...]

    7. I've actually been working my way thru this one for quite a while like maybe a year. So I get to the end and feel like I'm ready to take on some trial stuff and then I found out that a lot of the info is dated. So now I've moved on to CSS: The Missing MAnual. I don't exactly feel like I totally wasted my time since any understanding is a good thing but I wish I hadn't spent quite so much time on it. I could have moved on much more quickly

    8. Overall content: 5 out of 5 starsThis book covers just about everything from concept to publishing. Great informationRelevant Information: 3 out of 5 starsI knew about half of what the book covered from a class I took and other books I've read. (Note to self never buy a book when you don't have the time to look it over real well cuz you've got to pee really bad)

    9. Although most of it was review for me, I was still able to find a few things I didn't know or wasn't entirely clear about. I think it's a good and easy to follow guide on building your first website.

    10. Filled in a few holes in my overall web knowledge and will get you up and running fast. But, the book is now becoming a bit dated and could do with a makeover. NF.

    11. I really like "The Missing Manual" series of books. This book will get you started, but you need to read other books to get more depth of the details of creating a website.

    12. Dated informationt sure why this title is on the syllabus for a local web design class. Disappointing for a 2009 edition. I would recommend other titles.
