I just graduated from medical school and I am currently in the process of building a website. I chose SquareSpace via recommendations from friends that have utilized its capabilities successfully in the past. The dilemma: are there books written on how to design a website using that venue? There weren't many books available, and the few that were had questionable user reviews. I ended up trying this book, Building Business Websites with SquareSpace 7. I am not finished building my site, but so far this book is proving to be very clearly written and concise. In addition, the author provides many outside references/links to aid in the design process. It is very thorough and set forth in a logical manner. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and would not hesitate to recommend this book to other individuals that are in my position relative to website building.
Sitting down with this book to work on my new website was like having a personal coach by my side. The tone of the book is encouraging, clear and engaging. I am a true beginner at website design. I would have been lost without this book. I tried for nearly a year to create my site on wordpress and felt like a failure. Now in just two weeks, I have created a website I am delighted with thanks to Building Business Websites with Squarespace 7 by Miko. The simple, step by step guides and screen shots make everything so clear, I heard my self say again and again, I can do that! And oh I get it. This book was a break through for me since it made me feel tech savvy instead of tech stupid. Thank you for this book!
A very well written book which is very useful, when it comes to making and maintaining your web site. It helps in leaning squarespace 7 very easily, even if you have no knowledge about it. It gives you good details on how you can effectively improve your websites. I highly recommend this book for web development.
This book can be a tremendous help if you are considering a Squarespace web site. It is probably best to read the entire book, or skim it, before building the site. It is easy to read and actually quite interesting. There may be nothing that can't be found by visiting the help in Squarespace itself, but this will provide a great starting point and helper at your side while you work. There are many chapters covering the process and they are indexed well enough to be able to find something in particular. Availability as a Kindle book makes finding what you are looking for that much easier. If you build your site and follow the steps set forth in the sequence of the book, it will be a great assistant.
4-8-2015: This is an FYI to display the ISBN of the physical book, since it isn't mentioned in the announcement email Miko sent out about her book. Indeed, it is only shown when hovering over the icon at the end of the "number of pages 308".9781783559961Copy and paste this ISBN into the regular site, and both the physical and Kindle editions are displayed.
