5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and easy read full of useful stuff !, 6 Sept. 2012

This review is from: Practical CSS3: Develop & Design (Develop and Design) (Paperback)
CSS3 is the upcoming standard for designing the look and feel of web pages and Chris Mills book is the standard for learning the new features that CSS3 introduces.
Chris's book starts out by explaining the ethos behind the standard, the difference between progressive enhancement and graceful degradation and how the standard helps web authors to implement these paradigms. The book goes on to explain the tools you should be using to be a modern web developer and the importance making your website accessible to all. After that it's a whistle stop tour of the new features you'll get access to in CSS3, such as Fonts, Boxes, animations, Icons and grids. Nice to see Responsive and adaptive design get a chapter all to itself.

Chris's style is easy to read and the emphasis is on practical examples you can take away and build on. As with any emerging standard there are problems with browser support which Chris readily acknowledges and explains; nothing is hidden and despite the fact that Chris is closely associated with the Opera browser does not get in the way of the facts. Nor is there any unnecessary browser bashing going on! The examples give are fun (if you're a Python or Metal fan at least) but are practical. I recommend the book to anyone doing web development work: it's a handy reference and an easy read. I'm certainly going to recommend it to any students I'm teaching Web Development.
