Review of HTML & CSS by Jon Duckett

Rating: 5 out of 5

HTML & CSS by Jon Duckett is an incredibly helpful guide to website design for the absolute beginner. Websites are one of the most important ways for people and businesses to create a platform to get their information out to people, and knowing how to design a website is a valuable asset. Duckett has written a clear and easy-to-understand guide that will give anyone the information they need to begin designing their own websites or getting the most out of their blogging platform software.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part covers HTML and the second part goes into the more visual design that goes into a website through CSS. The layout is perfect and very helpful both for retaining the information and flipping back through the book to refresh on certain elements you may have forgotten. Duckett gives the reader the most up-to-date code available in HTML5, but also goes over some of the older code that you might run into.

For anyone who dreams of designing and building websites, but worries it might be too difficult, HTML & CSS should remove much of that hesitation. I’m excited to start using the things I’ve learned in this book to start designing and building websites, and especially for my blogging.
