Web Site Design Goodies by Joe Burns, Ph.D. Web Site Design Goodies provides simple, easy-to-follow instruction to help readers understand and implement web design concepts. The book also offers advice on how to solve specific web design problems and learn things to avoid, such as using a combination of green and red as colors for text and background. Author and communications professor Joe Burns, Ph.D. explains web design concepts and helps readers solve specific problems, rather than simply providing specific HTML templates for readers to use. After readers have finished the book, they will have some actual knowledge of design and will have acquired skills they can use to solve problems on their own. Burns also explains how content is important, and teaches readers how to use a website to communicate effectively with its users. Critiques of websites designed by amateurs are also offered to help readers learn what works and what does not.

This is not the first time Joe Burns has helped people with web development. He is well-known for his skill at simplifying web design concepts and has authored two books, HTML Goodies and JavaScript Goodies, and also maintains a website at htmlgoodies.com. Once again, Burns provides an excellent collection of valuable tips and examples for readers to learn from when creating a website of their own. Highly recommended for web design novices.
