As a web developer, I’ve been using CSS for years but never really took the time to learn it. My focus has always been on writing actual code and so when I had to write CSS, I would hack it. I would search for various tutorials to get the immediate job done, but never have a full grasp of exactly what I was doing. One area that I was fuzzy on was the use of descendent selectors and as a jQuery user, this lack of knowledge limited what I could do.
So after reading many Amazon reviews, I ordered this book. Much of the book was a refresher for me, but I even enjoyed those sections as they helped to solidify my knowledge in those areas. Overall, it’s very well written and gives lots of clear examples. The tutorials at the end of each chapter really get you to put into practice the more theoretical concepts in the chapter.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn CSS or grow in this CSS knowledge.
