CSS3 For Web Designers CSS3 For Web Designers by Dan Cederholm

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m not a design person, but I learned a lot and I think I’ll get a lot of use out of what I learned. It gives a good overview of CSS3 features that can be used now, even though CSS3 isn’t finished yet (as far as I know). It focuses on non-critical aspects of the experience layer so that people using browsers that don’t yet support these features won’t know that they’re missing anything. It’s short, to the point, and even funny in a lot of places. Definitely worth checking out.

P.S. – I don’t feel bad about including this type of book in the 20 I want to read for the year. I did read this book all the way through and I plan on reading a couple of trilogies that are counted as 1 book on Goodreads.  3 down, 17 more to go.

  • All the “Books Apart” are really well written. I’m glad to hear that a non-designer got something out of the book. All too often I start reading reference books like these and easily write them off with a “I already know this stuff” attitude…I need to stop doing that. Especially when it comes to the CSS3 and HTML5 stuff because I am *way* behind in that stuff. Where I work now hasn’t exactly been pushing the boundaries compared to where I was, so there is little constant learning…and thus less fun.
