I was looking for a concise reference book to aid me in my web site design. This book was exactly what I was looking for.
The book presented bite size chapters that could be read sequentially from beginning of the book to the end, or by going directly to the chapter of interest. I have made use of the examples to modify my site's existing style sheet, and using this book I have learned more of how to use style sheets and more techniques that I was unaware of.
The quick reference to each 'style' and its options was the best part. A major fault of other books I looked before purchasing this one, was that they did not show the syntax clearly, and even when they did show the syntax, they did not cover the options available.
This would be a good purchase for beginners and moderately skilled web-site designers because of the well presented information on style sheets.

This book is an excellent starting point for those making the leap from styling with html to css. Not only does it break down core principles into easy to digest chunks of information it also teaches some practical methods and techniques you'll actually put into practice. The thing I like best about it though is that it's organized really well and contains a wealth of information so even after you've learned and mastered the basics of CSS you'll be able to come back to this book later on and it will be a great reference book for things you need quick refreshers on.Was this review helpful?
