I'm going to nitpick: this book has a lot of charm and affability (as does Code Academy website -which this book plugs as THE place to go to apply what you learned in the book). The only problem with book "learnin'" as presented by Nikhil Abraham, is the paucity of substance. Chapters one through three function as the cheer-leading chapters, which are designed to whip up the readers enthusiasm for the subject matter of coding. A lot of primary colors went into the illustrations of those three chapters. Unfortunately, a large percentage of the illustrations, photographic AND print screened, are illegible. But they are exciting. It takes forty pages to reach chapter 4. Along the way we sort of learn what coding is, how it is supposed to work, how we can use it, what it can do (everything, apparently: I am waiting for the "Church of the Risen HTML5" to make its presence known), what programmers do, what front end and back end developers do (shame on you!). Yeah, I know... I made the same jokes, too. But chapter 4 is reached at last. HTML. I was really hoping for "more game" in this chapter. You get plenty of definitions and tiny boxes not even filled with anorexic examples of code, by way of explanation. And what "real-life"examples you do get is so shoddily printed, and in fonts sosmall they are unreadable. Chapter 4 is barely 14 pages. It really needs to be 2 to 3 times as long. Chapter 5 suffers the same problem. Again, the subject matter is HTML is again, more definitions and MORE unreadable print screens (who the hell thought that was a brilliant idea? And where was the editor?) but again it is poverty time when it comes to showing how it all links together. Ya know....
