Looking over the shoulder of a master

No book can be perfect for everyone. This is not a beginner's book, nor is it an exhaustive reference. What it is, is a workshop in which the reader gets to see into the mind of a CSS expert while he goes through a number of redesigns. Mr. Myers takes us through redesigns, one step at a time with numerous screen shots so we can see exactly what each new style does. With an accessible, informal voice, he also explains the reasons for each decision so we can begin to think like a style sheet pro. As a tutorial for web designers with a bit of CSS knowledge who want to become experts this book may be just the ticket. A great niche book.
