why read writing for the web?

  • It’s a thin book. Fat books typically don’t follow their own guidelines, such as
    “be succinct”!
  • It’s designed to allow you to zoom in to find what you need, and then
    quickly skip to another topic.
  • It encourages you to engage, to observe, to think, and to try various effective
    writing tasks. The chapters are packed with examples, challenges, and
  • It focuses on words, pictures, and sounds as story elements for your Web
    content rather than the mechanics of using specific software and tools.
    There’s already a flood of good books available on how to use the latest
    tools and technology to capture and publish media.
