CSS is how the Web's visual world is described and designers need more than just technique savvy to build strong CSS sites. SPEAKING IN STYLES: FUNDAMENTALS OF CSS FOR WEB DESIGNERS provides a top pick on how to think in the colors, forms and compositions of the code and its styles. Designers and collections catering to them will learn how to 'pop' a Web page and how to learn the semantics of CSS without technical jargon in this top, recommended pick that goes beyond most CSS explanations.

Excellent book! My mind thinks both artistically and logically. I was reading Jason's previous book, "CSS, DHTML & AJAX - Fourth Edition" and found that I was having a bit of a hard time grasping the concepts in the technical format. In "Speaking in Styles" Jason addresses CSS from a designers viewpoint, including many examples as well as references to online resources for further self-education. Now I can go back to 'Fourth Edition' with a solid base knowledge of why rather than just how. Whether you intend to develop or simply collaborate with developers, a designer needs to at least understand the 'language' of styles in much the same way that a print designer understands how to prep for press. Highly recommended!

A beautifully illustrated book that teaches both CSS and web design best practices. In a truly unique fashion it shows CSS rules and how they affect a page, and talks in clear terms about designing and implementing sites. A truly different and unique book, and one of the few I'll be using in teaching my CSS/Design classes next semester.

This is the best book I've seen yet. I am a visual learner and was having trouble understanding, but with this book everything is explained and you are shown what, why and how to do the steps for each section. I like the fact that it shows HTML and then the appropriate CSS formats.

I sometimes struggle to read an entire book--especially if it is a technical book. This book, however, was not at all hard for me to get through. The information was very well-organized and presented in a manner that kept me interested. This book made CSS very clear to me. I have always been a little confused about what order CSS rules are applied to web pages. This book lays it out in a manner that is easy to understand and remember. If you build web pages at all, or if you need a good reference book for CSS, I highly recommend getting this book. It's well worth what little I paid for it.
