I was a bit surprised that the book basically ignored the fact that most websites these days are not coded by hand, but rather generated through content management systems (CMS). The average website developer really does not need to know much of the material in this book in order to design a website these days. I believe that this book is targeting people who have written code in other languages before and who want to learn the "under the hood" aspects of how modern HTML design works. In practice, only a tiny percentage of website developers have any idea how to write code by hand, which is what this book teaches.
So, if you have previous coding experience and want to learn the details of how modern HTML language works, this is a great place to start, especially considering the amount of information you are getting in a single volume.
