4.0 out of 5 stars Casual, Approachable and a Great Intro to CSS, 7 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks (Paperback)
There's a lot to learn with CSS, and some people simply do not have the time to study a large, in-depth book. What they really want is to get the answers to a couple of questions they have without fuss, which the book is able to provide in a really approachable format by listing common issues and questions people usually have. If you think you fall into this category, that's fair enough, and The CSS Anthology will be a very worthwhile purchase for you.

However, if you're serious about actually getting down and learning CSS from scratch, this isn't a viable learning resource. While it will teach you many of the fundamentals in CSS, it won't necessarily be as thorough as other books will be. I really do recommend you check out CSS: The Missing Manual instead, as it tends to cover the large majority of the language in much more detail.

I'd say this book is targeted at beginners, and I'd call it more of a reference book than a educational one. Still, if you're looking for a casual approach to CSS or a lighter read on the subject, you really can't go wrong with The CSS Anthology.
