Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy To Follow I have read both the HTML/CSS and Javascript/JQuery books and they both gave me a solid foundation to move onto more complex programming. When I started reading the HTML/CSS book I knew nothing of programming except some very basic HTML coding. I have no been able to overhaul my company's website and have worked on rewarding projects that I wouldn't have been able to understand without these books!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great book, but poorly bound. I love the book, but the binding is the worst I have ever seen. The pages started falling out almost immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent introductory text I was looking for a good introductory text for my wife who is learning JavaScript. With the full page visuals and diagrams, this book is perfect.
