This book is excellent for DHTML and CSS newbies to get their feet wet with. It's very thorough and covers all the basics of CSS and DHTML as well as providing plenty of intermediate to mildly advanced techniques. The book is very well laid out and easy to follow. You can easily relate all the samples in the book to your real world coding problems. Personally, I'd rather read a straight text book without all the extra pictures, but it will definately benefit a lot of people who learn by seeing. You don't need to actually try any of the code yourself to see how it will work. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to learn CSS or just wants a good CSS desktop reference.
