You will need a knowledge about HTML tags before reading this book by the way. The author casually uses HTML tags such as <article> and <header> introduced in HTML5 so it could through you off if you only knew about pre HTML5 tags.
CSS or how to use it. But CSS is not at the top of my list as far as needing to know the everything about it. I tend to use it to reference specific information and I usually already knowing exactly what I am looking for. This is a great book if use it the way it was intended. It's not a "missing manual" and was not meant to be. It's a book you keep on your desk for when you need it. If you don't know HTML or the basis of CSS, then this book is not for you. I do wish this book had a little more content for CSS3 but I am comfortable with my purchase. Best $10 I have spent on a book in a long time.

The book has good-sided screenshots that show how the code renders by the common browsers as well as support by the unfriendly IE 6 and it's younger siblings the IE 5.X gang, with pointers to internet charts on browser support. The design is excellent and the book will hold it's pages for longert and the quality of paper is also very good and very legible.
My wish would have been more of CSS 2.1 and very little CSS 3 since it's browswer support is still a problem. Recommended.
You would need poachers pockets in order to carry this - "pocket guide" is a complete misnomer
