About the Author
Dudley Storey – the author of Pro CSS3 Animation – is a teacher, writer and designer who was making web pages almost as soon as the web came into existence. In the decades since, he has been a developer, interactive designer, 3D artist and top-ranked teacher in his home of Canada. When he’s not writing, lecturing or experimenting with web technologies, Dudley enjoys travelling (especially long-distance, solo, self-supported bicycle tours), gardening, and woodworking.

I have to say I was very impressed. Clear, concise and easy to understand - this is a great book. If you've got existing CSS2/3 skills you will pick this up quickly.

The three and four star reviews of this book are superficial and inappropriate. The persons complain about the quality of the code examples.
The author mentions in the book that the code is too long to be entirely included the book.
It would not help any reader if the book had 30 more pages of code and the book starts with a link to where the complete code samples can be downloaded.
One can't expect to copy and paste the code samples, make a few twitches in a couple of minutes and ... voila ... there is animation in my web application.
The theory of CSS3 animation itself is somewhat heavy to diggest. But the author structures this theory around practical examples.
The some twenty practical examples are each excellent sources of inspiration for animation in web applications.
On the bright side, coders should take this book more as a guide to open your mind to what is possible rather than exactly how to do it. The code can be seen as basic recipes ready for you to add your own flavor.
That being said, Storey articulates himself clearly and succinctly. I'm only half-way through, but have learned a lot already. Judge for yourself by taking a look at what I've been doing with CSS animations on my portfolio site from the lessons I've learned from Storey's book: corryoneill . com
I would recommend the book, and I would read the author again. Would probably give 4.5 stars, if I could.
