Getting StartED with CSS by David Powers is published by “friends of ED” / Apress. It was first published in late 2009. As the title implies, this is a book for CSS newbies or casual CSS coders who want to deepen their knowledge.
The timing of this book is spot on. Microsoft has finally produced a reasonably CSS-capable browser in the form of IE8, and IE6’s usage is starting to dwindle. Now is a great time to learn CSS 2.1 in depth, and discover what it can really do.
This book thoroughly explains pretty much all the features of CSS 2.1, and also touches on some of the features of the upcoming CSS 3.
Here’s my full review of the book.
