Shelves: tech
After teaching web development for over a decade, my bookshelves are literally clogged with books on the subject. Most are out of date before the ink in them dries and are completely uninspiring. This book is quite direct, well written, and rather than making promises like, "you'll be a CSS superhero by page 100", it takes a more instructive, thought-provoking approach. Cederholm explains in great detail how things work, and makes some important points about the changing nature of browser techno ...more

An excellent book on the craftsmanship that is CSS. Great examples of ways we can use the latest CSS properties, as well as making sure our sites still work and look great on all browsers. A wonderful chapter on fluid design from Ethan Marcotte means that this book will get you thinking about creating dynamic designs that aren't dependant on fixed widths and browser capabilities. Easy-to-read, beautifully presented, with a writing style that will make you giggle at times, this book will inspire ...more

Muy buen libro que proporciona un marco general para entender el concepto de mejora progresiva en la programación front-end.

El origen del "Responsive Web Design" de Ethan Marcotte está en el capítulo de Grillas Fluidas que aporta en este libro. Sí lo leíste (muy recomendable) podés saltearlo acá tranquilamente.

Si bien el libro tiene una rápida vejez (inevitable cuando se desarrollan técnicas en lugar de conceptos) no deja de ser una buena presentación práctica del tema.

Another excellent book on CSS by Dan Cederholm and Ethan Marcotte. This is the book I was looking for: no basics, just great up-to-date techniques for styling websites with CSS. Very easy to read and to the point, just the way I like it. You'll read this in a short while and then get right back to work, applying its techniques.

If you work daily with CSS coding and want to update yourself to recent techniques and best practices, this book is for you.

Keeps your interest and flows easily between each chapter. Once I finished this book I felt confident to start experimenting with CSS 3. Most definitely worth the investment.
Chelsea Otakan
A good reference for people more experienced with CSS, but this is mostly a book aimed at beginners or beginner-intermediates who are just learning best practices.
Great CSS book which will also serve as a great reference. This is a must have for every web designer's bookshelf.

Recommends it for: web newbies, those unfamiliar with CSS3 or progressive enhancement
Shelves: design, web, css
Beautiful book. Nothing too earth-shattering, but it's a good reference to have for all your CSS 3 needs.
Joselito Surdilla
Good content, but too much fluff; could have been re-written in less than half as many words.

So great! Haven't watched the DVD yet... Anyone interested in a Dan Cederholm movie night?

Not too advanced, but still a helpful, quick read -- especially on liquid layouts.
