This is a timeless book about web development, clearly and elegantly written, that covers the five main principles of web design (Layout and composition, color, texture, typography, and imagery). I began my journey into web design/development back in March of 2016 and through this book I found a wealth of knowledge that would have taken me years to acquire. This isn't a huge technical book, it's easy to read, and provides concrete examples of the principles; resulting in a beautiful road map that leads you to discover more about each topic. Jason takes each topic, breaks it down, and hits the essentials without getting lost in the weeds, and delivers the needed overview of the basics for someone like me just starting. Even though I consider myself moving past the basics I still refer to this book for those little bits that I didn't understand at my first reading but now resonates since development requires an investment in time. Like anything on the net, a few of the references are dated - there's no way for anyone to prevent that - but the context of the content makes it easy to google a clear example of what he's pointing out. So many times we reach for the latest and greatest book on technology given the speed in which it is moving so its AWESOME to find a book that is clearly written, stands the test of time, and is fun to read. This book is post-it compliant bookshelf certified for years of future reference! Enjoy!
