5.0 out of 5 stars Best CSS book I have used., 3 May 2011
This review is from: Pro CSS and HTML Design Patterns (Paperback)
First things first, this isn't really a book for a CSS novice. I guess that is where the "pro" in the title comes from. However, if you know your CSS basics then you will reap many benefits. For instance, if you have ever used CSS for a page, only to have it break in another browser, and spend hours (or days) fixing it, only to find that it now breaks in the original browser, then you have reached the level where this book will benefit you.

It isn't a very stylish book. Instead, this book concentrates entirely on the practicalities. Examples are of the bare boned, minimal variety, designed to show off a particular technique, without any bells and whistles. It works well, and you will soon find a workable solution to your problem. I say workable solution, as opposed to correct solution, because, often, what you have already is the correct solution, in well behaved browsers. This book will show you the methods that work in pretty much all browsers.

There is an HTML5 / CSS3 version out in September. If you are stuck now though, I wouldn't wait. This book will save you many hours of frustration.
