Similar to the only other book in the Head First series that I read (Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML), this book is a very easy read. It is graphical and not filled with big technical words that just prove to be confusing.
If you're already a web designer, looking for a reference book, this book is not for you. (In that case I would recommend CSS Cookbook). This book is meant more for developers who are already comfortable with HTML & CSS that would like to take a crack at designing standards compliant websites. However, this book could be a good refresher if you are a designer who has been out of the industry for a while.
By reading this book, you won't learn the fundamentals of design, but more so on how to evaluate a site based on usability. It focuses largely on the workflow someone should get accustomed to. There are lots of different activities, not forcing you to sit through a book long tutorial. However, it is not recommended to skip any of these lessons.
Another good feature is that all of the required files are online, so as long as you have an internet connection, you're good to go.
