Default HOW TO FOLLOW ALONG WITH THE BOOK

THIS BOOK SUCKS, YOU CAN NOT FOLLOW THIS BOOK FROM START TO FINISH AND DEVELOP A SITE. THE BOOK TALKS ABOUT DOING EVERYTHING BUT IT NEVER TELLS YOU WHERE TO ADD THE CODE TO THE PAGES. IN CHAPTER 1 IT JUMPS ALL OVER THE PLACE TALKING ABOUT WHAT HAS TO BE DONE BUT WHEN YOU TRY TO FOLLOW THE BOOK AND ACTUALLY DEVELOP THE SITE IT DOES NOT EVEN POINT YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

FOR EXAMPLE THE CSS IN CHAPTER 1, THE BOOK TELLS YOU ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO DO BUT IT NEVER TELLS YOU WHERE TO PUT THE CODE. LATER IN THE CHAPTER IF YOU LOOK AT THE THEMES YOU CAN FIGURE OUT THAT THE CSS TALKED ABOUT GOES IN TO ONE OF THE THEME FILES. NOT ONE TIME DOES IT SAY CREATE A FILE FOR DARK BEER AND ADD THIS CODE TO IT. I AM EXTREMELY PISSED OFF ABOUT THIS BOOK AND I WOULD LIKE A REFUND OF MY MONEY BUT I KNOW THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. THANKS A LOT WROX FOR ALLOWING SUCH A POS TO BE PUBLISHED. TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY BUT THE ONLY PEOPLE COMPLAINING ARE THE PEOPLE WHO PURCHASED THE BOOK AND ACTUALLY NEED TO DEVELOP A SITE LIKE IT. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER WROX BOOK IN MY LIFE.
