In the short time I have been working on the web, most webmasters don't fully understand CSS and what it means to make something "pixel perfect." Chris shows you how to create the layout that you want to and position everything exactly how you want it to appear. Not only does he show you how but the DVD comes with exercise files so you can inspect what he did just in case you didn't get it the first time. There were parts of the video I needed to replay just to solidify the lesson in my head (I recommend taking notes during the lessons so you can mimic his workflow).
What is most valuable about this DVD/booklet is the workflow. If he sold his workflow instead of this DVD, it would be worth millions. Why would I say something like this? Simple - time is money. Once you absorb all that he has to teach about CSS and why you should build a rich media website in a particular order and actually do it, you will appreciate what time is saved. I can guarantee you that once you watch this DVD, you won't be using Google much to learn about how to build rich media websites or how to establish a powerful workflow with the Adobe Creative Suite.
In case you're wondering if you should buy others, don't waste your time - I already have. This particular DVD is better than the training at LyndaDotCom, TotalTrainingDotCom and VTCDotCom. (No offense to these companies, they do put out other good training products).
Although some of the techniques he covers are interesting and useful and the author seems knowledgable, don't expect to buy this without any previous knowledge of the markup language (html and css) and adobe software, and understand 80% of what he is talking about. Without a basic understanding of html and css you will be completely lost. He breezes through (get used to hitting the "pause" button) most of what he covers, without any discussion of WHY it is the best or most efficient way of doing it. Again, really not for beginners.
