More Eric Meyer on CSS

If you have read the author's previous book Eric Meyer on CSS (cascading style sheets) you will already know whether you like his presentational method. If you have and do, you will need no persuading from me to purchase this sequel. Now for everyone else.

If you already know the basics of using CSS and want to progress a little further this might be a book for you. The author uses a purely project based approach. This book consists of ten projects.

The first project in the book consists of taking an existing page, designed and implemented with heavy HTML usage and convert it to one that uses a CSS driven layout. I.e. the web-page equivalent of converting source code written in K&R C into and OO design using C++.

In each project the author walks you through the process. The author is honest in that he points to the things that can go wrong if you slavishly apply the process somewhere else.

I like this style of learning/teaching but not everyone agrees. If it suits the way you learn and you want to spend time improving your web-pages or acquiring skills in this area this would be a good book for you.
