Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML
by Elisabeth Freeman, Eric Freeman

O'Reilly, December 2005

review by
Cynthia Walker, 2007

This is the first book of the Head First series I have read and it has to be one of the easiest books on HTML. It uses a conversational style of writing that makes the technical parts of the book an easy read.

The lessons that Head First provides are short enough to take time out to actually do them. Easy and to the point.

The authors somehow know the questions that are rarely asked openly and answers them with pictures and scenarios. Redundancy is used throughout the book so that every type of learner can understand what is being taught.

Head First HTML takes a while to get through because it's loaded with information beginners need to know, to process and build a website. Keep on it though, if you take a break for too long, you'll lose your place!
