When I saw that Eric Meyer released a CSS Pocket reference I was certainly happy to hear this as I enjoy a good quick reference at my hand. When I got the book however, I was disappointed. This book may be many things, but it is not a reference book. Apart from the index at the back there is no way to quickly look up certain properties, but seeing as the index is ordered alphabetical this only helps if you know the name of a style porperty. The content overview is on one single page and summarizes the section titles such as floating rules and positioning rules. If you are looking for a breakdown based on what the styles group under, such as text formatting styles for example, then this book will disappoint you as well.

Being new in the area of web design and development and determined to make standards-compliant and lightweight webpages, I needed to spice up my CSS, after studying the basics. This particular handbook has been of great value to me, both because of its exhaustive property reference and its theoretical refinement of some CSS "gray areas" that not many people know about. The "supported browser" list underneath every CSS property made me nod approvingly. Finally, its small and practical size means I can carry it around in my laptop case without any burden and consult it during long uni breaks. Definitely recommended, great value for money.

CSS pocket reference is a good book for a quick reference. Do not get this book if you want to learn CSS. However, if you know CSS and you want a handy pocket reference this is ideal.

This book could do with some updating, I would have liked to see mozilla and webkit specific CSS items in here.

Some lined pages would have been handy at the back for when new CSS items come out.

A little dated but a good reference anyway.

This cannot and will not teach you Cascading Style Sheet (CSS). It's excellent if you are already using CSS for styling your html or xhtml pages. I always have it on my desk as I write my style sheets to quickly check the exact syntax for a css declaration.

My only problem with it is that the index does not help much. Many important and common css stuff has not been indexed, making it difficult to locate them fast. Other than that, it's excellent especially that it even touches browser support.

Recommended reference for CSS coders.

This is an excellent summary reference of all CSS commands and options. Once you understand the basics of CSS, this is all you need.
