The book is focused more on the creative process rather than the technology itself, as many of the publications in the field seem to do. The extensive knowledge of the author (who is an invited expert of W3C), known for it’s useful articles on web design will surely be a good starting point to creatives starting to explore the fields of web design.
When i have my copy available (since it’s only on pre-order), i’ll post the full review here. Meanwhile, you can check the companion website.
Update: just found out Malarkey’s Flickr photostream, so you can do a sneak preview of some of the pages.
