There are so many errors. What it looks like that happened here, is that the revisions were not done very carefully for this second edition. The instructions contradict themselves. When following the lesson instructions, I need to improvise to make the examples work. I.e, in one of the exercises, it instructs: #1. Add backgrounds and padding. So, it shows the example for backgrounds, but no padding. There is no padding added at all in the exercise because it would break the layout (fluid layout). Initially, you feel you did something in error, so you try to fix on your own as you lose faith in the instructions.
Another example is: one of the exercises shows an example image of what was done in the lesson. The box has rounded corners in the image. The instructions do not include creating rounded corners. This again, has me checking the instructions over for what I may have missed. Eventually, I will check the finished example and it does not have rounded corners. Sometimes these errors are ways to learn more as you become more independent and assume responsibility for your learning process, but there are so many of these problems and poorly-written instructions, I cannot recommend this book at all--and certainly not to my students. I am sure they are NOT happy with me this weekend.
There may be some merit in that it COULD be a good book if whoever was writing it would slow down and proof the examples. ...very poor editing. I have only worked with a few chapters, but they are poorly written, so I am not holding out hope for any future chapters I explore.
