It seems like every week there is a new HTML book released. On our last check, Amazon listed 5,602 HTML books and 260 in the last 12 months. Here's an excellent way to find a good introduction to HTML book on Amazon.com. Once you identify the book you want, you can buy it from anywhere you like:
- Go to Amazon's Advanced Book Search.
- For the Pub Date fields, enter "After", "Jan", "2015". This will ensure that all of the content in an introductory book will still be relevant.
- For Sort Results by, select "Bestselling". You might be tempted to select "Avg. Customer Review", but that will result in a lot of noise as many of the books that have high average reviews only have a couple of ratings. So, your form should look like this:
- Press Search
- On the left-hand side of the resulting search results page, under Audience, click Beginners & Seniors to filter out the books targeting experienced programmers:
- Finally, select one of the top books that looks appealing to you. You may want to use the Look Inside feature and read some of the reviews to make sure it feels like a fit.
