Good teaching, poor reference
on November 15, 2010
This book does a good job of teaching CSS 2.x.
It won't help you design a web site (see something like The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks, and Hacks and the CSS Zen Garden website for that), but you will understand the key concepts of CSS and probably use it in a more effective and methodical way as a result.
Sadly there isn't so much as a cheat sheet included so even if you fully understand CSS after reading this book, unless you are blessed with a photographic memory, you will need to find a good cheat sheet to list all the available selectors, properties, and property values. Fortunately there are several free ones available to choose from on the internet.
