Building a Web Site for Dummies / 978-0-470-14928-7

This book is a great example of why reading reviews before buying is so necessary, even when dealing with "trusted" brand names. I picked this up in a store without going through my usual policy of checking the online ratings first, and boy I wish I'd saved my money.

Okay. I already know how to build a web site. But I love to read newer editions of the Dummies books because I find (most) of them to be written in an engaging, amusing way. Plus times are always a-changin', so it's good to keep up. I'm learning new things as I read about the old things. This version in particular is very Google-product-involved- writer is a definite Google fanboy. But then again, who isn't?

Ah, gee...

That was rough. But, I now feel I'm at least well-informed enough to start laying the foundation for my company website - www.monkeypuzzleonline.com.

This book makes sense. It has some useful ideas on website security as well. The designers of goodreads.com should read this.
