HASH(0x9d17b678) étoiles sur 5 Worst Eric Meyer book 12 février 2011
Par Tar Heel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is by far the worst Eric Meyer book ever. What were they thinking? This book recaps CSS techniques from Eric and others that have been in use for years! A majority if not all of this information is readily available on the internet and some of it is very old.

Smashing CSS: Professional Techniques for Modern Layout

CSS3 is the biggest thing to hit the web and there are only a few pages dealing with CSS3. OK so the book should be about quality layout techniques. CSS3 will include columns and layered (multiple) backgrounds. I was blown away by the lack CSS3 subject matter. This is not a book for those who have been using CSS for some time (you will know this stuff or be able to find it on the web) nor is it a book for beginners.

There are several other books out there that are better. If you are wanting to learn CSS3 I would try the Visual Quick Start guide by Jason Cranford Teague. I do fault it, because the title is CSS3 and the book is not devoted to CSS3 alone.

I have the impression this book was just thrown together for the purpose of people like me who try to absorb as much information as possible.

Look else where for your CSS or CSS3 knowledge.

HASH(0x9d17b8e8) étoiles sur 5 Good, but a little buggy 11 janvier 2011

The content of this book is very informative and it's nice to have all the techniques together in a single volume. However, the examples do not always work the way the author intended so hopefully an errata will be published very soon. Also, the code examples on the companion web site are incomplete; it would have been useful to have completed examples available for testing purposes.

HASH(0x9d17b888) étoiles sur 5 A perfect book for those just learning CSS 10 mai 2011
Par Webuquerque - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a very different sort of book by Eric Meyer. Not in subject matter, of course, but in tone and purpose. Instead of his previous rather pedantic and encyclopedic listing of every thing you might ever want to know about CSS, this book is light, humorous, and organized to be read from front to back.

If you've been paying attention to CSS for the last few years, most of this book will be old news to you. But the book isn't aimed for those already literate with CSS. It's meant to help the newbie learn enough to master the basics and go on to create some cool looks and layouts with CSS. Every chapter has lots of examples, screen shots, code, and advice.

The first section starts right at the beginning with a chapter on Tools such as Firebug and SelectORacle. Chapter 2 talks about every kind of selector with advice about what works best when there is more than one way to accomplish something. The second section of the book deals with Essentials. In the chapter called Tips you learn about things like unitless line-height values, image replacement, and list styles. The chapter called Layouts reviews float containment and explains layouts like faux columns, liquid bleach, the one true layout, fluid grids, and the holy grail. In the Effects chapter he explains how to create an effect like his complex spiral. He also explains CSS pop-ups, menus, rounded corners, sprites, sliding doors, parallax, ragged floats, and constrained images.

The final section of the book is Cutting Edge, in which he moves away from reviewing the foundation CSS knowledge of the past and jumps into new ideas. There's a chapter on Tables that shows new techniques for styling tables. He gives tips on using head, body and foot for table design and shows how to use a table to make a graph or provide data on a map. The final chapter is Cutting Edge. This chapter looks at HTML5, media queries, occasional children, occasional columns, RGBa, shadows, multiple backgrounds and transforms.

From a web education perspective, this would be an excellent book for teaching a CSS class.

HASH(0x9d17bf84) étoiles sur 5 Great exposure to the next level of CSS design 8 avril 2011
Par Bryan Newman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I'm a hack web developer - the kind that lays pages out using nested tables (but I want to change.) So when I read this books overview, with it's 50 pages dedicated to CSS layout, and more on CSS tables, I couldn't wait for it to arrive. But it was not quite what I was expecting.

First I should say that I do really, really like this book, but you have to take if for what it is. Perhaps it explains this somewhere in the book or the Amazon description and I'm missing it, but this is a tips and tricks or ideas book, not a training book. Actually this is exactly the kind of book you get when you take years worth of a magazine's "Cool Tricks" column and try to fit it into a book. The result is a whole lot of disparate tips and gathered loosely into a bunch of themes. This rarely comes out with a flowing style, and this book is no different. It is a bunch of gathered CSS tricks that fall under a handful of topics. So it is not a book to learn CSS with, and for that matter, it is not an easy reference book.

So why do I really like the book? It has some amazing tips and eye-opening examples. In many places it delves into esoteric concepts of CSS that never make it into the "Learn CSS in 24 hours" books. This book has opened whole new worlds of CSS organization and capabilities. Not all the ideas are winners (for my needs anyway,) but there are enough great new things to pay back your time and money.

To give some examples, the book opens with 40 pages of tools. The descriptions are brief, and the packages are somewhat repetitive, but I have pulled a couple of the free tools and they are great. I see them making a big difference. Later he points out validators, another valuable tool. (Remember, I'm a hack, not a pro, but it was great to be introduced to them.) The tips section is kind of a good example of the layout of the book. It is kind of a catch-all for the ideas that don't fit into other areas, so it reads a little jumpy. One by one, the tips range from "not relevant to me" to "Oh my God, I wish I knew that a long time ago!"

I really did like the book, it reads fast and it is probably about 5 of the most valuable hours of research I have done on CSS in some time. But it is not for a beginner looking to learn CSS, more for someone like me who needs to be exposed to the possibilities.

HASH(0x9dd43138) étoiles sur 5 Know a little CSS? Use this for inspiration, education. 6 avril 2011
Par N. Krumpe - Publié sur Amazon.com

So, I had finally wrapped my head around why CSS is important. Separating content from style just makes sense. I get that. And, I understand the basics of CSS. I can write and use simple CSS code to change the style of a document. What I did NOT know, prior to reading this book, is how to make good use of CSS. I needed some inspiration, so that I could start doing something with CSS. Enter "Smashing CSS".

This book is inspiration and education aimed directly at people like me...people who know the basics of CSS, but who want some ideas about how to put CSS to good use. Meyer effectively presents dozens of examples, along with thorough descriptions of how to create those examples, and why they make sense. For example, in 10 pages, Meyer uses style to take the seemingly rigid rows-and-columns format of a table of United States data, and put that data in their correct locations on a U.S. map. He builds to a final solution, getting there in small steps. The end result (the map itself) may not be particularly useful, but what you learn along the way is valuable indeed.

I would NOT recommend this book to newcomers to CSS. The book assumes some background understanding of CSS. However, if you have the basics, and are looking for ideas to try and apply to your own web pages, then this may be just the book!
