If you are an experienced reader, you pick you battles. You may know what you need to learn next without further ado.
If you are not an experienced reader or just clueless you need peer recommendations, or someone who knows or recommends some good resources. Reviews here count. Ask and you will get some good ones. Plus having to see a free demo is easier and quicker than starting to build on your own Facebook just to understand how websites work. You can do this more efficiently.
Now if it's actually NOT WORTH your time and your effort is subjective, because in the short run you always have to spend some time searching anyway.
In a long run, I strongly believe that if you find the right material that will guide you through the process in a clear and concise way, coupled with a good narrative is priceless and I would more than happy to spend the extra buck to use this as a learning helper.
For example I would pay for this material here. It just happens to be free but its of a very good quality.
