Guide Review - The Design of Sites
Feb 10, 2004 - The thing that's really nice about this book is that you can open it to nearly any page and find something of value. The sections are all labeled with related sections indicated through color coding and numbering. This makes it easy to bounce around in a book as if you were on a Web page with hypertext (perhaps not as easy as hypertext, but much more permanent). I filled my copy of this book with flags and bookmarks to remind me to do various things on my sites. I love the color photos and the best-practices spelled out in detail. This is a very useful, if thick, book.
