As someone who bought and devoured Eric Meyer’s first book on CSS, I looked at this book with interest. However, I’m a recovering web-design-bookaholic and I’m really trying to cut back on my habit.

I couldn’t figure out if there was enough new/different stuff in this book to justify buying it. Some of the projects are similar to the first book and CSS and even browsers haven’t changed very much in the intervening time, though I know CSS practices have.

What are people’s thoughts on the value of the book to someone who literally memorized the first one?

If I’m not mistaken, the pullquote with this article’s excerpt referenced on the D-W index page is attributed to Eric Meyer, but is actually the author’s own.

Andy, you are correct… this is why I should never publish that late at night. Thanks for pointing that out!

I can’t comment on differences between this book and the first (I barely knew what CSS stood for at the time), but I can definitely say that “More” was very helpful and well-written.

I have done most of my learning via the web, learning from other designers’ examples and sites. This book is similar in concept but also holds your hand through the process. Something invaluable to anyone just starting out. It has really helped me get more out of my other efforts too.

Sorry, comments are closed.
