Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For $9.99, I made the ill-fated choice to purchase "...100 Success Secrets, Tips, Tricks..." without first sampling it. I just needed a CSS reference on my Kindle. After purchasing, I first began to get nervous when I saw that the table of contents didn't display well on my Kindle DX - as though there were no CRLF pairs.
But I'm more concerned with content, so I continued on.
"It is very advantageous for a person to gain enough knowledge about the correct placing of CSS position as this will vitally help him to direct the precise position of his HTML elements. Good thing, it is already possible these days to do the designs that require the use of HTML image maps or JavaScript previously through the use of CSS." (from "CSS Position: Marveling on Its Purpose").
What? Ok, perhaps my standards are too high. After all, good development guides don't need to define art, right? They just need to be correct...
"When a person specifies position: absolute, the elements is automatically being erased from the document and transferred exactly as to where he would want to place it." (from "CSS Position: Marveling on Its Purpose").
Ok I'm out. High standards or not, I rather need verb/noun agreement, even if it is "just" a development guide.

By bel on October 24, 2013
Format: Paperback
I bought this book looking for practical guidance with issues I come across in HTML or CSS. I could hardly read the book, due to its terrible grammar and lack of sentence structure. For example, "Working with templates has always been rewarding because it allows you to capture the design that you want in an effortless manner more so when you know how to work at them." Seriously, it really says that. On a technical note, the book is badly outdated, even though the copy I have was printed in January of 2011. It refers to Netscape many times and never even mentions Chrome. And numerous times the book refers to XHTML as the up-and-coming code, which is practically obsolete. In defense of the $19.95 I spent on it, I hoped there would be something I could take away from reading it, so I did muddle through. The most painful thing about trying to read it, is that it is extremely redundant. The author restates the same information over and over and over throughout the book. The whole thing could have been written in 10 pages instead of 154. The back cover says. "Buy this book....you won't be sorry." (Yes, he even used four periods in leu of an elipsis...) I would add to his statement, "You'll be embarrassed you ever bought it. Or worse yet, that you ever read it--or tried to." I urge you to NOT buy this book. I think Charles White must be laughing all the way to the bank.
