5.0 out of 5 stars The best CSS book i've bought so far., 17 Jun 2007
I've spent a small fortune over the last 6 months on web design books. I've got a little from each of the books that I purchased - but this is the best CSS one by far. I keep finding myself dipping in everytime i'm struggling with something in my stylesheets.

It's structured like a standard reference book, with sections on various topics (floats, positioning, box model etc.). However the last two chapters are devoted to a step-by-step walkthrough of an example web design project. The dual-format works really well and adds an important dimension to the book. The fact that the example projects are written by those doyens of dope design Cameron Moll and Simon Collison is an absolute bonus.

Whilst it is getting a bit long in the tooth now and could do with an update to reflect IE7, it is still my go-to reference, and one that I would recommend to anyone who already has a basic grasp of css. C'mon Mr Budd - time to put pen to paper again...
