Designing With JavaScript : Creating Dynamic Web Pages by Nick Heinle.
An excellent learn-by-example tutorial that helps you create dynamic content for your Web site. Each chapter tackles a single topic with a relaxed and conversational tone. The thoroughly explained examples in each chapter are blocked off in green for quick reference and included on the accompanying CD-ROM. Whiz-kid author Nick Heinle--author of the JavaScript Tip of the Week Web site and closet high school student--covers a lot of ground, from dynamic frames, forms, and cookies to the latest in both 4.0 browsers' versions of Dynamic HTML. One excellent chapter demonstrates how to easily include multiple versions of your scripts to work with versions of Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, depending on which browser views the page.

Get over the immature writing style and grammatical errors. Nick Heinle may need a new editor, but his knowledge and ability to teach will overcome any shortcomings. If you want to learn DHTML, this is the book to get you started.

Advertising on the Internet by Robbin Lee Zeff, Brad Aronson.
Internet advertising does not work the same way as advertising does in other media--although the basic advertising principles still apply. The Net's fabulous growth has also made it an ever-shifting marketplace in which to work. Zeff and Aronson look at all the issues involved in Net advertising--buying it, selling it, and using it--with the uninitiated in mind. They lay out the basics of both Internet communications and advertising principles, attempting to show how they work together.

The authors begin with a quick look at the present state of online advertising in Chapter 1. In Chapter 2 they explore the valid reasons for using online advertising and how it can fit into a greater advertising strategy. Chapter 3 examines the various models of online advertising, explaining how they work and comparing the advantages and disadvantages of each. In chapters 4 and 5, the authors survey the software and hardware tools and technologies available to online advertisers, ranging from means of delivering ads to methods for measuring results. The various approaches for pricing ads is the subject of Chapter 6, while Chapter 7 looks at the nature of the Internet audience and how it's changing. The final two chapters consider the strategy involved in buying and selling Internet advertising. This hype-free book looks at Net advertising through pragmatic eyes. It could save anyone interested in buying, selling, or creating Internet-based ads from making a lot of costly mistakes. --Elizabeth Lewis,
