This is the tongue-in-cheek, hands-on guide to all those annoying effects you've seen on other sites and secretly desired for your own. Building Really Annoying Web Sites is a subversive new book that will teach you the long sought-after secrets of how to add all sorts of truly irritating effects to your own personal Web pages. These include all our old favourites, such as: Making all the menus and buttons in a browser window disappear; Changing a cursor's shape, without the user's permission; Creating impossible-to-close pop-up windows; Adding aggravating Flash animations and movies; Trapping users in framed pages if they try to link off your page; Each annoying effect is followed by a section explaining why it would be wrong to add that effect to a Web page and suggesting a more appropriate approach that well-intentioned users can take, if they so desire. So, it's entirely possible that designers wanting to create non-annoying Web pages might also buy this book, to learn what not to do.
