Website Cookbook

Doug Addsion, Web Site Cookbook, O'Reilly

Two hundred and sixty-one pages (including index) of "designing, maintaining, and marketing" a website, and being a cookbook you'd expect ideas, code, and discussion and that's what you get.

With so much information on the web it might at first sight seem that a book might be a luxury but with a book you get cohesive organisation and you don't have to put up with intrusive ads along the way.

This book ranges from server issues through organisation, design (although a section called Creating Effective Pop-up Windows should have been pulped at birth) to database issues, creating email lists, and various other bits and pieces.

There's always something to learn in this line but whether that's worth the price of the book will dpend on your knowledge.
