Title: The CSS Anthology101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks
Publisher: SitePoint
Authors: Rachel Andrew
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Extremely Practical

I rarely give reviews, but CSS Anthology is so well written I had to add one. My main background is programming, with only a bit of CSS experience, picked up from studying source code and on-line tutorials.

Ms. Andrew fills the book with practical, usable examples - from designing 2 or 3 column layouts without tables, to formatting data tables and input controls -- all told over 100 pieces of code, fully worked out and not just 2-3 line snippets. She clearly explains all these examples. The 1st 2 chapters begin at an easy level, with basic styling, and she uses these as a basis for the more complex designs that follow.

If you've read of the amount of work developers of web application servers like Plone put into their CSS design and wanted to understand their choices, this book will be a great aid.

Title: JavaScript for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide (4th Edition)

good jumpstart

I dont know how some people are giving this book five stars, but its like this. It went over things too quick, didnt explain any of what was going on, and pretty much, the authors just took a few functions outta of the javascript library and threw into this book, wrote a real quick non-complete description of it, and probably only spent a week making this book. I bet those people giving the 5 star ratings are just the company getting onto amazon and making up names and stuff just so they will get your money. Trust me, this book is terrible! Even if you know all the C++, VB, or whatever, this book skips things like understanding what is going on, they just throw stuff in and dont explain what is going on, they assume you know already (even though you dont). The only good thing this book is for is firewood.
