Let's see. I read Borland's teach yourself HTML in 30 days.
It was actually an 800 page book and took me several months but I was 10 and you can't find that on shelves anymore.
Books don't really work in the modern day. I love learning from books, but every time I go to get one from the book store the books are already over a year old from print date and using older versions of whatever I'm trying to learn.
Hell, the PHP book I learned from taught me to use it for html templating and taught me how mysqli was the best way to interact with the db. Only wdg taught me about PDO and prepared statements a couple of years ago.
