GET THEM SPIRAL BOUND
By Ariel Tolome
[[VIDEOID:5c75cbf303c4ea056fc17559f585e602]] When I received them. I was excited to learn how to code. The problem was that every time I turn a page, it just felt like the book is about to break. After reading all the reviews about how their binding broke. I took action, I went to Staples and asked to get them spiral bind. They cost $6 each to add the spiral binding and I was impress with their results.

Well-written books with horrible durability.
By Janus Varmarken
These books are generally well-written and visually appealing.
I have a set of minor complaints about the text, and one major complaint about the physical durability of the books.
First, the text seems to have a tendency to repeat the same example. This would not be an issue if the example code was reused in order to clarify a new point, but it gets slightly annoying when it is simply readdressing a learning topic that was already covered earlier in the text.
Also, if you come from a programming background, these books sometimes leave you with a lot of questions, i.e. they do not provide enough technical details in some passages. However, to be fair the books do target beginners, so this was somewhat expected.

Do you need to learn HTML and CSS quickly? Get this set.
By Yeng C.
This is likely a premature review, but I have just finished the HTML and CSS book. This review will be revised as necessary once I finish this set, but I have to say: what an amazing read. I have previous experience programming in R and Python, and found the exposition to be very coherent and very clear. About 10 hours through reading this book, I could actually read and understand most HTML code on a webpage. I have experience here and there having to write simple HTML pages on the fly, but it's nice to finally -understand- what the code is doing and have a good idea on how to structure a web page. Highly recommended for people who need to learn HTML quickly and don't have time to Google absolutely everything! The CSS section is just as great, but it will take longer than 10 hours to go through. Very nice and easily reproducible examples (except in the cases where he uses a downloaded image, but I don't mind that much).
This book could use some updating, however, with respect to HTML5 and CSS3. has been deprecated, for example. I look forward to seeing an update released.
