How many of us get interested in a subject and end up buying loads of books on that subject because there is usually not one definitive source to get it from. In my search for the Hallowed CSS grail I have bought to date 5 books (excluding this one). I found only some of the answers I was after from all of them. Out of roughly 10ish chapters per book, I probably learned from only 3-4. If you buy a book as an alternative to searching google for the answers you expect that you wont have to use google to find out what some things mean in the book!

I spent much money and confused days & nights, wondering why someone could just not write a book, that takes you from your basic knowledge of HTML, guide you at a decent pace through the basics of CSS & on to a level where you have the confidence, understanding & proper technique, to design a decent looking website with clear explanations, a thorough discussion of the do's & donts and also when and why to use certain selectors, tags, block elements etc.

Well its apparent someone 'was' listening. Im not sure if Simon Collison has a 6th sense but this book truly does what it says it will'.

The author states that this was the book he wished he had when he was learning CSS & fortunately for people like myself & you its come at just the right time. I anticipated this book so much that I couldnt wait for it on mail-order I went to buy it from a big bookstore on Charing X road in London. I've just finished chapter 6 and so far I have been impressed by the style of writing, humour & clarity with which the author opens up your understanding of CSS. So many things started to 'click' & make sense. Ever had that eureka moment where you just sit there and say 'aaahh so thats how that works' or 'so thats why you do that..etc'.

...goes to Andy Clarke for getting Logan's Run and Battlestar Galactica into a book on Cascading Style Sheets.

The book is divided into two parts with Colly first introducing the reader to the basics of CSS before moving on to an in-depth look at layouts, usability and accessibility enhancements, tips and troubleshooting and the obligatory (great looking) case study. Chapter 1 -- Getting Started soon enters a reasonably meaty discussion on maintaining and organising style sheets that intermediate and even advanced practitioners might also find of interest. We all have our little ways of organising our files and Colly introduces the beginner to multiple directories under that one css folder we normally only ever have (come on admit it!), modular CSS, CSS syntax, commenting and indenting as well as reusing style sheets for other devices. From a teaching perspective it was good to see some best practices being introduced right from the start -- page 9 to be precise. The next chapter looks at IDs and classes, how to use the cascade (or not), grouping, inheritence, contextual selectors and CSS measurements (pixels, percent and ems). Again, a good foundation chapter for beginners here -- too often we see font-family defined for every heading or a class put on every list item when an id on the ul was all that was required. The reader is also informed about grouping similar styles into one rule to achieve nice, compact code. I'm not sure if CSS measurements belonged in chapter 2 but by the end of it a novice would be well-informed on how to organise their style sheets and get the most out of them in as few lines as possible.

After attending Dave Shea's "Typography for the Web" presentation at @media2006 I enjoyed the recap (as it was for me) concerning text offered in chapter 4.

I've just finished this book having read it cover to cover, and will now be going back to work through the examples page by page. I have to say I was extremely impressed - the examples and explanations are well-written and easy to follow. The book assumes a basic knowledge (though provides handy refreshers on basic XTHML for people like myself who are a bit shaky) but takes you step by step up to the stage where you can create and lay out a full web page with CSS, which was exactly what I wanted.

There were one or two occasions where typos in the example descriptions left me a bit confused for a minute or two, and I personally would have liked a section on pop-up menus, but overall this is an excellent book which told me what I needed to know and was enjoyable to read - highly recommended.

I needed a book which basically started at the beginning. I new about CSS, had worked with it, but only on a WYSIWYG editor, which didnt help. I was recommended this book by a friend, and I wasnt disapointed. The text is easy to understand, with tutorials right the way through, and also includes online examples of working code.

This book is for anyone who enjoys CSS, from beginner to master. I keep it by my desk in work, and I always find myself flicking through it for hints on how to carry out a certain task.

Honeslty - go for it! Im made up with my copy :)

Received this book in great condition. I purchased it for my boyfriend and he seems very pleased. I can't comment on how well the book is at teaching, but my boyfriend will complain about anything and he's said nothing but good words about it so far. Must be a great book!
