"My kind of book" - by John Brobston on 21-MAR-2014

A renowned educator once wrote "telling is not teaching".    Most books in the IT arena tell, they don't teach.  The "Head First" books try very hard to actually teach.  They use exercises, tests, and other forms of reinforcement which most others lack.  It took me about two weeks to work through this book, and at the end while I was not an expert on HTML and CSS, I did end up understanding them well enough to be able to use them and had confidence that I could make them do what I wanted.

The only weakness I see is that some supplemental exercises, not necessarily with solutions, would have further reinforced the lessons.

I highly recommend this as a starting point for studying HTM and CSS

Before reading this book, I knew how to write html files but didn't know why I should do in this way. This book gives me a very good understanding of the html via a bunch of examples.

"Good book, but Safari version is messed up" - by geoelectric on 07-FEB-2013

The book's fine. But the table of contents doesn't properly jump to chapters; only the ToC and Index are accessible. Makes it very hard to use via Safari.
