After I checked this book out, but before I started reading it, I took a look at the reviews on Amazon. The reviewers panned the "Core Technologies for Web Development" section of the book. I wondered, "Is it really that bad?"

Yes, it really is that bad. The authors, an executive recruiter and a technical writer, obviously have zero understanding of web technology. The Core Technologies section is a waste of paper.

The later parts of the book are more useful, provided you keep the mind the authors' backgrounds.

For example, the Education chapter places great importance on the value of a bachelor's degree. I don't doubt that a Silicon Valley recruiter like author Kathleen Taylor finds it easier and more remunerative to place a prospective hire with a bachelor's. However, according to Texas Workforce Commission data, many web jobs in the Austin area go to people who have a two-year degree or a resume' showing related experience.
