Taking Your Talent to the Web is aimed primarily at print designers in the process of trading in their Pantone swatch book for a Web-safe colour palette. Designers following this path are more numerous than wildebeest on the plains of the Serengeti, but in fact the book serves as an excellent primer for anyone considering Web design as a profession.
This takes in the kind of stuff you'd expect--navigation and interface design, typography, colour, style sheets, browser compatibility and standards--and adds a wealth of useful background material. Where examples are provided, Zeldman gives WYSIWYG HTML editors like GoLive and Dreamweaver a wide birth, preferring to stick with clean, functional hand-wrought HTML.
The best thing about the book, though, is Zeldman's style. Very few authors have the ability to inject humour into technical subjects without it being intrusive and irritating, but he manages to pull it off on almost every page. This is a book you'll actually enjoy reading, as well as learning from. --Ken McMahon
