Tired of reading HTML books that only make sense after you're an expert? Then it's about time you picked up the newly revised Head First HTML and CSS and really learned HTML. You want to learn HTML and CSS so you can finally create those web pages you've always wanted, so you can communicate more effectively with friends, family, fans, and fanatic customers. You also want to do it right, using the latest HTML5 standards, so you can actually maintain and expand your web pages over time so they work in all browsers and mobile devices.

In this book, you'll learn the real secrets of creating web pages, and, most importantly, you'll learn them in a way that won't put you to sleep. If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect: a visually-rich format designed for the way your brain works. Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, this book will load HTML and CSS into your brain in a way that sticks.

So what are you waiting for? Leave those other dusty books behind and come join us in Webville. Your tour is about to begin.

This is a book for absolute beginners, but as far as beginner books go, this is a good one. I found myself wishing that I'd had this book for when 20 year old me was learning all of this stuff. Full Review  >

Great introduction to HTML and CSS for beginners interested in designing web pages. Teaches the very basics without needing any experience or pre-existing knowledge. Starts from scratch and slowly builds on the basics to teach you best practices and principles! Highly recommended for the beginner who enjoys the writing style found in Head First books!

This book is an introductory book. Lots of examples and practice exercises. The beauty of the head first series book is visuals. This book in the similar fashion helps us understand the technical details by using visuals. This book covers the important html tags and css styles in detail.The book provides very detailed explanation of the tags. Full Review  >

There are two kinds of people in this world - those who know Elisabeth Robson and Eric Freeman and those who don't. If you have read any of the "Head First" series of books, you would know why the web developers love these guys. "Head First HTML, CSS, and XHTML" was a super-hit when it launched and most of us, including me, had great pleasure reading it. The book is back with a refresh and with a couple of new chapters on HTML5 and also loss of a chapter on XHTML. If you are a fan of the "Head First" series, then this is the book to get on HTML and CSS before you venture out to "Head First HTML5". Since I had read the first edition, it was great to quickly skim through this book and stop occasionally to read some new material. My only disappointment was that there was no in-depth coverage of CSS3 but overall this book is worth it. I do hope the authors come up with a "Head First CSS3" book in the future. I would be the first to buy it. Full Review  >
