"A fine reference for any web developer who wants to improve upon an existing, basic skill set."
--James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review: The Bookwatch, The Computer Shelf, September 2012, Volume 7, Number 9

"The recipe is easy to follow, explanatory, and helpful.... Want to make Apache secure with HTTPS and SSSL? Consider Recipe 39. Need to debug some JavaScript? Try Recipe 31. Need to make a responsive, grid-driven layout? Go to Recipe 26. Want to know how to use Mustache in your HTML? See Recipe 10."
--Armando Roggio

"I did pick up a few features that I might use in a future website."
--Dr. Tami Brady, TCM Reviews

"Overall, I found this book to be extremely readable; I also found several specific pieces of information that will be useful to me immediately and that I haven’t seen elsewhere, including a recommendation for a program to see how pages will look in all versions of Internet Explorer."
--William Springer, Vulcan Ears Book Reviews

"This book’s title does not do it justice – it’s also a great book for intermediate web designers (just out of web design diapers) who want to take it a few steps further...If you are a web developer or web designer who wants to learn how to put it all together, this book does a pretty good job walking you through the process."
--Stefan Mischook,

"...a good primer for anyone who would like to learn web design from a global perspective. From graphics, to color, to fonts, to HTML/CSS, and onward, Brian Hogan has written a solid little book that should get you off the ground and into web design, whether you're a programmer or not."
--James Pyles, Million Chimpanzees
