Praise for other books from Eric Freeman & Elisabeth Robson

“This book’s admirable clarity, humor and substantial doses of clever make it the sort of book that helps even non-programmers think well about problem-solving.”

Cory Doctorow, co-editor of Boing Boing and author of Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom and Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town

“I feel like a thousand pounds of books have just been lifted off of my head.”

Ward Cunningham, inventor of the Wiki and founder of the Hillside Group

“This book is close to perfect, because of the way it combines expertise and readability. It speaks with authority and it reads beautifully. It’s one of the very few software books I’ve ever read that strikes me as indispensable. (I’d put maybe 10 books in this category, at the outside.)”

David Gelernter, Professor of Computer Science, Yale University and author of Mirror Worlds and Machine Beauty

“I literally love this book. In fact, I kissed this book in front of my wife.”

Satish Kumar

“Beware. If you’re someone who reads at night before falling asleep, you’ll have to restrict Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML to daytime reading. This book wakes up your brain.”

Pauline McNamara, Center for New Technologies and Education, Fribourg University, Switzerland

Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML is a thoroughly modern introduction to forward-looking practices in Web page markup and presentation. It correctly anticipates readers’ puzzlements and handles them just in time. The highly graphic and incremental approach precisely mimics the best way to learn this stuff: make a small change and see it in the browser to understand what each new item means.”

Danny Goodman, author of Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Guide

“The Web would be a much better place if every HTML author started off by reading this book.”

L. David Baron, Technical Lead, Layout & CSS, Mozilla Corporation http://dbaron.org/

Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML teaches you how to do things right from the beginning without making the whole process seem overwhelming. HTML, when properly explained, is no more complicated than plain English, and they do an excellent job of keeping every concept at eye-level.”

Mike Davidson, President & CEO, Newsvine, Inc.
