3.0 out of 5 stars Could be a lot better! 10 Feb 2007
By Adam McClure - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I hate to be the first person to review this book but here it goes. This book means well but my main gripe is with the books layout formatting and examples. There is way too many garish green text boxes that are "notes" or "pro tips". The boxes are distracting and there are quite a lot of them. The examples do help illustrate the material being dicusussed, but they look like examples out of the early 90's (cheesy). If you are just learning CSS this book would actually be decent if you can get past my gripes that I mentioned. If you have been doing CSS for a little while I would pass on this book. I would definitely buy CSS Mastery, Bulletproof Web Design, and The Zen of CSS Design before purchasing this book. If you are just starting out Head First HTML with CSS and XHTML, or Beginning CSS Web Development by Simon Collison would be great places to start.

1.0 out of 5 stars But, what kind of "Web Designers"? 6 May 2007
By Mario A. Oliva Daza - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is really, really bad, a waste of paper, and a waste of money for me. Bad quality content in good quality paper. Definitely not for novices but not for "real" web designers either. Lots of useless photographs, low quality screen shots, many "blah, blah, blah" paragraphs and poor CSS code organization.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please tell me people don't think of this as web design.. 13 Nov 2009
By Gregory P. Sarpy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the absolute worst book I've read. The saddest part about it was forgetting to return it within 14 days..
I bought the book as a physical reference hoping it would be that, and let me say it was not that nor was it a book
that I feel could teach anyone anything about CSS and using it with XHTML.

I hate to be negative but seriously I do not understand HOW this book got published. I wish a real web designer (real meaning someone who knows CSS/XHTML and has good creative taste too) would have looked over this book before it got published. He/She then would have said "um this is really confusing".

Please do yourself a favor and pass on this book. It offers very little indepth understanding. It explains properties like "float" but then never goes into work arounds and "hey you need to know this" that there is with floats. She explains using the "clear" property, and it's basic function involved with floats but she does not go into how you MUST use it in certain float scenarios or your entire design will look terrible.

Please find a better book people. Like said in another review on here "it looks like clipart from the 90's" and that's no joke. As a web design book it should be both educational and inspiring. You would never see a photography book using terrible bad quality photos would you?
