I had high hopes for this book. After finishing Eric Meyer's latest CSS book, I was ready for something completely dedicated to teaching me everything I needed to know about creating a site without using a single table tag for layout. Although the book does explain how to do this, I was still disappointed. After a brief introduction about CSS (yet again), section two of the book explains how to create layouts without using tables. In all, seventy pages of 500 are centered on this topic. Half the book is a CSS reference. The other sections talk about fonts, colors, etc. Clearly, the book is mis-titled. This remains a good book for someone new to CSS, so they can avoid bad habits from the start. However, I would recommend Eric Meyer's book for advanced CSS users.Michele
This book is good for anyone who would like to learn to design a website. It shows numerous ways to style your layout with CSS.I would recommend it to any designer that already knows web as a reference book. I have not been able to get myself to read the rest of the book, since I know most of it all ready, but I do use it as a reference when I get stumped with Internet Explorer.Ahmad Alfy
Well I picked up this book and thought It will be about layouts with CSS mainly. I was wrong; It goes through a long introduction about CSS basics. It's useful and contain a comprehensive rich appendix worth to check! Found some of the properties I never heard of before. It also explain the inheritance and the selectors clearly. Recommended for anyone with basic knowledge looking to take his skills a smaller step forward before digging into the hardcore CSSRaymond Timberland
CSS. Don't be a web poser, be an auteur.Mark
I read this book thinking I knew a good deal about CSS. I quickly discovered that I was wrong. I was able to design a site with no tables whatsoever using this book, and started learning the fine art of content separated from style.
