I'm giving this book 4 starts only because I read it too late. It was absolutely a 5 star book when it came out. But now (2018) there have been a couple changes to the spec. Especially that we now have grid-gap, something which almost every example includes a wordy work-around for. That said, I still learned a lot, and had more pieces fall into place. CSS Grid covers an enourmous surfuce, and for a book this short it does a great job of covering it. The author, Rachel Andrew, is also my go-to fo ...more

A bit late to the game in getting to this book, however, I finally carved out some time to start looking into CSS Grid and for that reason alone, this book is a very nice introduction into understanding the basic ideas and syntax behind its usage. Looking forward to starting to implement more grid layouts moving forward.

Nice, easy-to-understand introduction to CSS grids. However, the book was published in 2016 and it's now slightly out of date in 2019. If you're experienced with CSS (esp. if with Flexbox) already, before reading this book check out A Complete Guide to Grid and see if that's enough for you.

Good but rather short summary of CSS Grid layout methods.

I sprinted through this after watching a grid course on Lynda.com. It's good to read an expert, but better to see code examples and layouts in stream.

Though I have finished reading this book, it may be a reference for the years to come. It will become more clear with the spec is released soon. Great practical read. Recommend it for anyone who wants to stay on the cutting edge of web design/front-end development.

I was a bit disappointed, not by the book but by the reality that the spec is only now, fully being implemented in browsers. This is more than a full year since the books publication or maybe 2 since the author began writing.

Any front-end designer will tell you that such is the pace of CSS spec development. As it stands I really won't be able to begin using this in production soon.

That is the rub.

Rachel Andrew makes her case and it's not even hard to do really, why Grid Layout is the future of C
