O'Riely's Nutshell books were quick and relatively easy reads, manuals containing some of the most useful descriptions of their topics available.

While this book is a great introduction to the field of web design, a less technical, more personal and warm approach could have made the already somewhat dry subject matter more digestable. After all, web design is one of those subjects you have to liven up when writing about it. :) Still, the book has much to offer and I found it quite valuable.

Excellant book, stays right above my workstation. I find it easier to use than on-line references, even, and it is a staple of my workday.

Good overview of many web concepts (for when book was published, anyway). Other references cover more in depth, but that's the limitation, of such a reference book. Packs a lot in for its breadth of content.
