Paul has another textbook An Introduction to Web Design and Programming, coauthored with Sanda Katila, a Visual Communications professor, that combines Web design with programming and can be a great complement to Dynamic Web Programming and HTML5 which is a much more comprehensive Web programming book.

Paul's Mastering Linux received great reviews and can be great for Web programmers working on the Linux environment.
