I tried this book because I needed to work on a website to support my own book. I had hoped that it would be helpful by pointing me in the right direction for many of the things I would need. In the end I just became increasingly irritated by the things it failed to tell me or the places where it gave either wrong or gave clearly out-of-date information.

There seems to be an assumption among writers of books on this subject that either the reader wants to know nothing more than how to produce a simplistic home page or will want to lash out on a copy of Dreamweaver at overĀ£200.

In the end I decided that it must actually be possible to write a book about setting up a good website from scratch but this definitely was not it.
