by on 1st June 2012 with 22 Comments


Back in April, we reviewed the best beginner’s web development book that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading: HTML & CSS by Jon Duckett. This awesome book is not only extremely informative, it’s flat out gorgeous.

If you’ve been itching to get your hands on a copy of this book, I’ve got some awesome news for you. This week we’re giving away three copies to our readers. Read on to learn more.

The Winners

A million thanks to all who entered and to Jon Duckett who personally organized this giveaway with us. If you didn’t win a copy today, don’t fret, it’s available for purchase online and worth every penny. What are you waiting for? Go get it!

The Book


Rather than attempt to restate how much I absolutely loved this book, here’s a quote from my review.

“The very first time I picked it up, I spent several hours pouring through its contents. Like a good novel, this book grabs you and won’t let go. The beautiful design and brief but to the point writing style makes for a unique read. In fact, maybe ‘read’ is the wrong word. This book is really ‘experienced’ and conveys the same feeling that I had browsing through photographic science books on space or dinosaur bones when I was a child.”

Whether you’re completely new to the concepts of HTML or you’re an experienced coder, this book will make a perfect addition to your personal library.
