Overall I found this book to be an excellent read.
It was short and to the point, and gives the reader a great starting point as well as inspiration. The book itself is well designed. My only qualms with the book is that the code examples are listed in full in many places, which gives less room for content related to the chapters. As I said in the beginning, this was a fairly quick read - but well worth it.
I would say that this is for an intermediate CSS developer, as specific CSS is not discussed in great detail but given to you as a way to achieve a specific design task. If you are familiar with CSS and need a quick way to achieve the tasks listed above, then this book is perfect for you.
Walks you through the hard stuff.
This was my kind of book. Looking at great webpages I always felt a little intimidated by how the designers did it.
What I liked about this book is that programming how-tos usually miss out critical details which make you feel handicapped when you try to extend on what you've learned. Not this book. This book assumes that you've spent 30 minutes to understand the basics of CSS and tags, and you have half a brain. From there it jumps right in to show you how to solve various problems, building it up in a stew-wise fashion.
This was really outstanding. There are many excellent tips and workarounds offered in this book. I have been working with CSS for a few years now but as it is a moving technology, one can never be "ahead.
I found this book in my local library and liked it as a reference. Although it is older it did help me with some concepts I was struggling with. The price was right.
Neat book! Learning a lot from it. I think there are many books that cover this ground a lot better and cheaper as well. Friends of Ed actually has a couple that I would recommend before this. And most certainly Bulletproof Web Design by Cederholm.
This book is really light on details and light on content. It's not at all worth its price, and it's only covering the very basics in a small number of areas. This is definitely not one of the first books you should be looking at about CSS. I bought this book based on the reviews. Foolish was I. I'm not sure I'll purchase any more Sitepoint books without driving over to the local book store and flipping through the pages first.
My last three purchases from them have been a little disappointing. If you haven't already read tons of books on CSS, then I can see how this would be an "ok" source of information.
I'm concerned about the techniques that are being used to teach those who are supposedly less informed than the authors. Many classes and ID's were assigned throughout this book simply for styling purposes alone. Not much emphasis was placed on semantics. In saying this, many things could have been accomplished with leaner markup and the use of adjacent and sibling selectors, attribute selectors, etc. If you read Clarke's or Budd's books, you'll learn that this extraneous code is completely superfluous and there are smarter ways to use your markup.
Topics they cover that have already been covered in numerous other books include: Rounded Corners. This has been covered a ridiculous amount of times in other books. Douglas Bowman has articles in his blog covering rounded corner navigation styling Sliding Doors of CSS that you can read for free at [ Form Styling.
It's essentially the same information.
Cameron Moll also discusses some of these techniques on his blog. The same information can be found in almost every CSS book I've read to date is over 10 books on the subject and every free online tutorial.
This information hasn't really changed over the last 2 years. See chapter 5. Feel free to check out my review on that book as well.
I'm still scratching my head over the significance of the word "Scientific" in the title of this book. Anyone care to comment on this review and explain that one to me? I'm becoming more and more disappointed with Sitepoint Publications as they come out. They're good at marketing, I guess, because I keep buying them and reading them. The titles are more misleading as each new publication comes out, and the content is re purposed from existing books - some of which are New Riders and Friends of Ed publications.
There's nothing new here. If you've read other "good" books on the subject, I strongly recommend saving your money.
I found the book hard too understand would not recomend I know html but cannot learn css from this book. One person found this helpful. See all 27 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
