As a web developer, I've been involved with doing more coding work using CSS in my pages as browsers such as Mozilla have come on the scene. So far, I've relied on Danny Goodman's book "Dynamic HTML", also published by O'Reilly. It has a chapter on CSS, and its coverage, while covering all attributes in CSS1 and CSS2, was a bit lacking in some details. (It was published in 1998.) Dynamic HTML is also a 1000+ page Bible of sorts, and felt unwieldy to refer to often. I wanted something lighter and more up-to-date.
Thus, I bought this book, not realizing that it only covers CSS1... surprising since it was published less than a year ago, nearly three years AFTER Goodman's book was published. Dynamic HTML already has excellent treatment of CSS1, and I was really more after a guide on the exciting features to be found in CSS2. I promptly returned the book.
I'd still only give the guide 4 out of 5 stars if it had the CSS2 attributes. Half of the book is devoted to tables showing the support for each attribute in about 10 different browsers; excuse me, but are there _that_ many users of Opera that we need to know the differences between Opera 4 and 5, on the Windows and Mac platforms? It's a bit too overwhelming, using up space which would have been better used on more examples and tricks.

If you're looking for quick information in a size that's easy to carry around, purchase this book. It's an excellent addition to the O'Reilly Pocket Reference series.
When I'm trying to remember the format for a particular style or how well it's supported by the various browser versions, I don't want to have to dig through a large reference manual. Instead, I reach for this book, quickly look up the style (listed alphabetically), get the information I'm looking for, and continue working. This is the reference I carry between work and home.
The book starts with a condensed description of how CSS1 works and how to use it. The majority of the reference describes the CSS1 properties, pseudo-elements, and pseudo-classes. Each entry includes the allowed values, a description, a few examples, and browser support for both Windows and Mac browsers. Additional notes describe any browser-specific issues. A browser support summary chart completes the book.
Even if you have Eric Meyer's Cascading Style Sheets, The Definitive Guide, you will still find his CSS Pocket Reference a useful addition to your bookshelf.

The fast food for web developers, A MUST HAVE!! This is yet another indespensible book in the Pocket Reference series. As with all of the other Pocket books this is best for people who have basic knowledge with subject matter (in this case Style sheets). However, if you are not familiar with the subject matter, the publisher of this series puts out the Definative Guide series as well which works hand in hand with the Pocket sized version. I have the HTML, XML, JavaScript and CSS pocket references, which always sit close by when I'm at work.

This is a good pocket reference that will give you the syntax for defining your Style sheet elements. Don't look for pictures in the book because it's mostly just syntax. If you need to look something up quickly than just flip thru the alphabetized list of elements. I like the browser compatibility charts that are included for CSS.

I've refered to this little gem many times while designing web pages in XHTML 1.0 Transitional and Strict. It has been great in exploring alternative ways of formatting the display of data using boxes and float instead of tables. Though tables are ofcourse still a good way to go.
