Six detailed chapters take you step-by-step through a third-generation site makeover, creation of a personal page, a storefront, a hotlist, and a gallery.

Editorial Review

A very thoughtful and practical guide to building what Siegel refers to as 3rd Generation Web sites: sites driven by design deployed to provide visitors a complete “experience” employing real-world metaphors and models of consumer psychology. Siegel provides especially good information about page layout and handling text and type faces.

I recommend this book heartily, and suggest that serious Web designers also get copies of Creating Great Web Graphics and The Visual Display of Quantitative Information for a very useful library of techniques and ideas.
