5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Book, 28 Nov 2007
I wanted to find a book helping me to understand why using CSS and why web design was so important in our everyday internet life. This book is just what I needed. First of all, if you like beautiful books, it is one you will like. It is about web design, it is logical to have a well designed book, but sometime it is not the case. Here, you will love having it in your hands and turning the pages.

In terms of content and organisation, it is just perfect for an advanced user. I did not want the author to explain that a div.myclass was a CSS selector referencing a HTML <div class="myclass"></div> but instead explaining the different ways to rearrange a HTML code generated by a CMS for instance.

Last point is that the book gives good advices for someone wanting to catch up with the most recent designers inclinations such as detaching the html generation from the style, or using only W3C standards methods. I have a very strong technical/theoretical education when it comes to computer science and entering the world of design is not easy. This book makes the first steps in this new world very easy and comfortable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good Reference for any Web Developer, 28 Nov 2007
The book is big and I think not meant to be read but taken as a reference instead. Basically it is very helpful when you need to fix a display issue or find the exact meaning of any CSS attribute. What I like is the accuracy and the amount of information you can find in this book. I would recommend it for any web developer working on very recent web designs.
