This is an excellent book for progressing from using style sheets for specifying only fonts and colors to building entire sites driven by CSS layout rendering--it is not a reference book. The author (who, incidentally led the W3C effort to define the CSS2 Recommendation) presents thirteen different real-world types of projects to teach and explain the power of CSS, ranging from conversion of existing pages and creation of menuing systems, to multicolumn layout.

I'm sure this is a fine book for some interests but it doesn't work for me where I am now. It's essentially a sort of "recipe book": each chapter starts with a premise like "Styles for Print" and "How to Skin a Menu" and goes step-by-step showing how Mr. Meyer would tackle the problem. Fine for learning how Mr. Meyer would tackle a problem but not so much for learning how CSS can tackle problems and then selecting which approach to adopt. Maybe I'll try it again a little later ....
Provides a variety of projects that teach you how to use CSS and why particular methods were chosen. This work also features a web site which includes all the files needed to complete the tutorials.
He's such a wonderful web guru. No other technical writer writes this off-the-cuff about process and practice.
This book is a little dated but the author is a "master" of applied CSS!
Great book, this basically taught me everything I needed to know to design with CSS.
These are classics in the field, of course...Now, I'm glancing through them again to refresh after two years off.
Eric Meyer and Jeffrey Zeldman are the masters of web design, so this book is a must!
Il maestro indiscusso dei fogli di stile. Per un primo approccio avanzato con i CSS, partite da Eric Meyer e da questo libro.
