The Web Designer’s Idea Book is exactly that — a compendium of screenshots (700, to be exact) of beautifully designed websites. The subtitle of the book reads, “The ultimate guide to themes, trends, and styles in website design.” I bought this book because I create a lot of blogs and mini sites. I always always always spend a ton more time trying to come up with a good design and tweaking it than I should. So I saw this book in the bookstore last year, flipped through it, and was sold. The question is, though, do you need a book like this?
