This book consolidates previous works in this area by the same author and introduces some of the latest developments - worth the investment if you are a serious web application designer

At Last! The CSS Clarity I've Been Searching For... 14 Feb. 2013
By Susanne C - Published on
Format: Paperback
CSS3 Visual Quickstart Guide by Jason Cranford Teague was more than I had hoped it would be! I had read an excellent CSS3 book before this one, but for a more advanced audience, plus I read the CSS3 and HTML5 Visual Quickstart Guide. With that said, the CSS3 book by Jason Cranford Teague offered some insight that is exclusive to this book and that every beginner, advanced beginner, to intermediate programmer should know. Namely, Cranford Teague provided a number of excellent methodologies not only for organizing the CSS code, but also for linking multiple CSS files onto the site. This may seem trivial for some, but for a beginner to advanced beginner such as myself, this was completely revelatory and was exactly what I had needed.

Additionally, Jason Cranford Teague goes on to provide a stellar listing of best practices, an eye-opening run through of how to debug and test the code, and the best accounts of inheritance, pseudo-classes, and box properties that I have yet to encounter.

Jason Teague's chapter on color was especially delightful, where Teague not only delivers with an analysis of color wheel and color theory basics, but also provides the most complete listing of color scheme tools that I have ever come across.

Some of the CSS3 highlights in the book include the excellent discussions on pseudo-classes, media queries, web fonts, text drop shadow, color gradients, rounded corners, border images, opacity, shadows, transformations, transitions, media queries, and responsive Web design (for mobile devices, IPads, and the like).

I would particularly recommend Teague's book to beginners, advanced beginners, and intermediates alike--and even advanced designers who want the skinny on CSS3.

After Teague's book, I would recommend a read through of The Book of CSS3 by Peter Gasston, which has an incredible summary of new CSS3 features designed for advanced users. Also, after reading Jason Cranford's CSS3 Visual Quickstart Guide's chapter on responsive Web design (i.e., for making Websites for Ipad and mobile devices), I would highly recommend a read of Ben Frain's book Responsive Web Design with HTML5 and CSS3. Lastly, none of the CSS3 books I have read cover the HTML5 canvas like the book CORE HTML5 Canvas does (as the canvas requires quite a bit of Javascript coding).

Jason Cranford Teague is a definite must for developers who want to do it right the first time around. I can't recommend this book enough--it certainly differentiates itself with the best practices chapter and the depth of discussion on both CSS and CSS3 fundamentals. Plus his dedication at the front of the book to his loved ones is brief but touching, which speaks volumes for the personable style of voice he uses throughout the book.

The 6th edition includes more CSS3 features; whereas, the 5th edition included the CSS3 highlights 15 May 2013
By superticker - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very complete (yet terse) coverage of the CSS3 features with some colored examples. This book even discusses some of the things yet to come. However, unlike the previous 5th edition, which color coded the extensions of CSS3 that were not part of CSS2.1, this edition does not do this. What is does do is provide compatibility tables of each feature relative to each browser, but if you're a newbie, you might prefer the color coding of the 5th edition instead. The 6th edition does have broader coverage of CSS3 than the 5th edition has, so more experienced readers may want it instead.

EXCELLENT Reference Book for Web Designers Entering into CSS3 16 Mar. 2013
By C. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been designing and coding webpages for more than 10 years. Despite years of experience, I only had a self-taught knowledge of CSS. Now I'm getting into CSS3 and find that this book is excellent for clearing up any confusion I've had with introductory topics of CSS (e.g. positioning, etc), it is excellent for expanding my knowledge of advanced CSS, it is great for learning about all the new features in CSS3. After reviewing many of the CSS books on the market today, I HIGHLY recommend this book IN COMBINATION with "Practical CSS3: Develop and Design" Practical CSS3: Develop and Design.

Great book for beginners and advanced UI designers 13 Oct. 2013
By James E Frenette - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought two copies of this book, one for my son who is just starting out as a web developer and one for me. This is very well written with great examples and images to guide beginners as well as advanced users since it covers everything from step 1 including best practices and gotchas all the way through advanced topics. I will probably buy Jason's other title on Web Typography after experiencing the quality of this title.
This Edition Makes a Near Perfect Book Perfect 19 April 2013
By Ron Grimes - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the previous edition and rated it, but had one minor complaint: I found the "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" example pages, in red font, annoying and difficult to see differences in applied styling. The author responded, indicating he only had a couple colors to choose from, but that the next edition would resolve this issue. True to his word, this edition is a much nicer read, The explanations and layout were always excellent. Now, it's easy on the eyes as well.

This is a must-have book for any web page and web application developer.
