Review
5 out of 5 stars

There are few all-in-one reference works that come up to expectations as so often they attempt to be all things to all men, but Web Design: The Complete Reference delivers on its' premise.

Powell's central thesis is that web sites are usable and accessible. To this end he has written an invaluable guide to building effective web sites with usability at the centre of the web designers considerations. If there's one book about web design you're going to invest on make this the it. There's plenty of genuinely useful content and advice, and the book has been written in a clear and helpful style that is both accessible for the complete novice, yet informative for the experienced developer.
