Learn Enough HTML on Amazon.com

Jan 19, 2017 • posted by Michael Hartl

In preparation for the upcoming release of Learn Enough CSS & Layout to Be Dangerous, which is going to be awesome, I've just published Learn Enough HTML to Be Dangerous on Amazon.com.

As with previous Amazon releases, for the first week you can get the Kindle edition of Learn Enough HTML to Be Dangerous for 20% off.

With its sequel Learn Enough CSS & Layout to Be Dangerous due out within a few weeks, now is the perfect time to brush up on your HTML, including full integration with Git and GitHub Pages.

If you've already read the online version of the HTML tutorial, it would be much-appreciated if you could leave a review at Amazon. Thanks!

I’m Michael Hartl—author, educator, and entrepreneur. I’m probably best known as the creator of the Ruby on Rails Tutorial, a book and screencast series that together constitute one of the leading introductions to web development. Once called his “favorite book” by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, the Ruby on Rails Tutorial currently has over 150 5-star reviews at Amazon. I’m also (in)famous for creating Tau Day and The Tau Manifesto, which have inspired an international movement dedicated to the proposition that “pi is wrong.” (For example, as a result of The Tau Manifesto, MIT releases their admissions decisions each year at “Tau Time” (6:28 p.m.), and typing tau/2 at Google yields 3.14159…) Finally, I’m a founder of Softcover, a publishing system and sales platform for technical authors, which among other things powers both The Tau Manifesto and the Ruby on Rails Tutorial.

I’m a graduate of Harvard College and have a Ph.D. in Physics from Caltech, where I studied black hole dynamics and was an award-winning instructor in theoretical and computational physics. I’m also an alumnus of Y Combinator, the entrepreneur program that has produced companies such as Dropbox and Airbnb. (Alas, my own Y Combinator startup was neither Dropbox nor Airbnb.)
