Excellent Book, 13 Nov. 2006
This book was recommended for a course I took on Advanced Web Design and CSS.
I have developed three web sites using it, each one using more and more adventurous and clever little CSS techniques from this book.
I'd recommend it highly. It's very hands on and tackles many of the day to day problems that any beginner or intermediate designer trying to build a web site will inevitably run into pretty quickly.
I've seen quite a few IT books in my time and, let's face it, lots of them are far too 'techie' and so full of information that you don't know where to start on them. Many of them make you want to groan out loud just looking at them.
I found this book refreshingly down to earth and practical and not bogged down with loads of information that the average web designer isn't going to use ever anyway.
If you buy this book, don't forget to go to Sitepoint's web site where you can download all the examples used in the book.
