I already know a lot of code, I bought this really just to widen my knowledge. The book is absolutely huge, and it covers a lot of the basic code such as HTML and CSS which every programmer needs to know as that is the fundamental element of code. Because it is such a big book, it is sometimes hard for the brain to comprehend all the information which is being thrown at it. Eventhough it suggests this book is for beginners, I would recommend it to intermediates as it is a lot of info to take on board.
It is however, good for references. If you forget some things, even the basic things which sometimes I do, it is great for quick references because all of the basics are in there. Hex codes, element code, it's all there on hand whenever you need it.
Overall, excellent for intermediate/higher level than beginner, not so good for beginners. For beginners, I recommend you buy HTML and CSS for dummies as that covers the absoloute barebones of coding. Again, this book is great for refrences.
If you don't know anything about programming and are confused by the bewildering array of languages and terminology this book is a great place to get started. If your sole aim is to learn a programming language then this book is not for you.
