New SitePoint Book: Everything You Know about CSS Is Wrong!

Book cover of SitePoint\'s book

SitePoint has released their latest book about CSS titled Everything You Know about CSS Is Wrong! (external link) I've been very pleased with SitePoint lately for releasing a lot of books outside the typical beginner range (external link). When they first started to publish books, most of their books were pretty basic (although still well written) and were certainly geared towards beginners in that particular subject. However, I guess since they already have books covering these beginner areas, they have been publishing a lot more intermediate and advance level books lately. Their books are just covering slightly more unique topics. Their book matrix (external link) is pretty helpful when deciding which of their many titles to buy, if you're interested.

Let's take a look at the summary of Everything You Know about CSS is Wrong!:

Quotation by "SitePoint"

Everything You Know About CSS Is Wrong! is an eye-opening exposé on CSS as we know it today. You'll discover a fresh approach to coding Cascading Style Sheets where old hacks and workarounds are just a distant memory.

You'll learn how to start taking full advantage of the very latest CSS techniques while still catering for older browsers and discover what's put the final nail in the HTML table-based layout coffin.

Rachel Andrew and Kevin Yank are both great authors and masters of their respective fields, so I know this book will be great. Now I just need to get my hands on a copy myself...

  • I've never even thought about looking at my uni library for SP books so I could read them, since I have very little money to spend at the moment.
