Who should read this book? Well, you'd better know at least basic HTML and CSS. Adobe Photoshop knowledge would be a big plus, too. Hmmm...I'd throw in Flash experience. just for giggles.

So was I a little, until I realized what Jason Beaird's book is really all about. What it isn't about is teaching you HTML and CSS. Lots and lots of books teach that.
