"Needles to say yhe overall service was pretty good - no problems
"I know your products tend to be good and of course I would buy again from you"
"I really like the content of the book and the principals and concepts are great with lots of techniques. I was a bit disappointed on the quality of the printout, all previous books I bought before were of excellent printout with proper colours."
"It shaped and sharpened my view of what is to bread a solid and beautiful design."
"This book approaches the whole concept of web design in a clear and logical way according to clear principles. As I am a coder at heart rather than a designer, this was very helpful indeed."
"Jason has done a wonderful job of explaining design concepts to experienced and novice web builders alike. Many real world examples and simple explanations make this book a must buy for anyone building a website."
"Very helpful book. Technically I know how to build sites and do programming, but unfortunately I'm not very gifted in the artistic department. This book goes some way to alleviate this."
"I like the way the book is written - casual enough to keep your attention.
"Some great tips for picking color schemes, layouts, and generally keeping the design interesting while giving priority to navigation and ease of use functionality."
"New to web technology so trying my hand from design to development and security to know where to specialise. This book showed me that web design is more than just HTMLing CSSing or Photoshoping. Introduced me to the basic concept of design. How color speaks, typo beautifies etc. Nice one by Jason B."
"For a newbie, it's all too easy to get bogged down in the technologies of web design. This book pulls you back out of the mire, and offers a fantastic overview of the big picture again: what's expected, possible and desirable in a modern website.
"Perhaps others' mileage may vary, but I understand the CSS box model much better, now that I know _why_ I need to understand it."
"the marketing hype is big, but the content is a bit standard."
"From a guy with little design experience I found the book extremely helpful. I will be contracting out a redesign of my company's website. This book really helped me articulate the look and feel I am looking for on the new site."
"I design & develop websites for a living (amongst other IT things). I only needed to learn one 'new' idea or method and I would have paid for the book. I learnt heaps!
"The book was a great refresher and gave me a new outlook on a number of aspects of design.
"Very pleased with my purchase and Sitepoint continues to meet my expectations.
"I was a big fan of the first edition, which was one of the first books on web design that I ever held in my hands. Glad to see that the same principles apply and have been updated."
"Great content for an old coder / wannabe web designer like me"
"Hi! I receive this book after 20 days I live on Mexico and I begin with the first chapter and its fine. I would like find more code but Its a great book, have a lot of examples and tips and webpages."
