I've enjoyed the book and the projects. I have definitely learned a lot from Sandro!
1) It explains the basics of what's new in ways that can be easily understood for someone who just wants to get up to speed on CSS3's new features, and
2) Develops its example projects to levels of complexity to satisfy a dedicated CSS enthusiast's need to experiment with equally complex undertakings.
All in all, a great book that really met my needs. To put that in perspective, I'm primarily a back-end developer in category #1 above.
Even for a CSS newbie like me it has been possible (and most times eye opening!) to reproduce interactively on my system the examples described in the book.
If there's a small issue (not really with the book but with the topic in general) is with the overall adoption of CSS3 (which in parts is a moving target) on different browsers. But this issue can be solved, using some techniques described in the book.
The concepts described always come with an explanation and are always of the "hands on" kind, very practical.
Overall, a worthy read if you want to improve your frontend skills.
PROS : Shows Practical usage of each and every concept along with their fallback for different browsers (including the old ones).
CONS : Needs prior knowledge of CSS3 and other modern features to read the book.
My opinion : A must buy book to increase knowledge and practical skills
The book is great also for the way it present tricks to mantain compatibility with older browsers.
It's necessary to know some Css and Html before reading it.
