Yet another nice review of my "Creating Cool Web Sites" book
There's always a time lag between when a book is published and reviews start to come in, so I'm pleased that the first review of Creating Cool Web Sites with HTML, XHTML and CSS is available online, and the result is very positive! A. P. Lawrence says that it's "definitely a book I can strongly recommend for someone who wants to start writing their own web pages."
The rest of the review includes the following accurate summary of what I tried to accomplish with this new entry into what's proven to be a rather crowded market segment:
"I think the one thing that impressed me the most about this book was that the author didn't mention FrontPage or any other Web creation tool. He didn't even mention using Word, other than as a cautionary "Don't". No, he suggests Notepad, Mac TextEdit, or vi, pico etc. That alone is so refreshing.On the other hand, Lawrence does lose at least one point for using the phrase "information superhighway" in his review, but since it's so positive, I think I can forgive him. :-)
