I got this book out of the library because I really appreciate Eric Meyer's website and his brilliant ideas on the css-d list. So I wanted to see what he started with. Plus, it was one of the only CSS books in our library ;)
E said "You know all this." That doesn't stop me from enjoying it!!! What I've read so far is really an interesting reminder.
As I finished the book, I realized that 2 years is a long time as far as CSS goes. The browsers Eric listed his tests were from were definitely old (IE5 hadn't come out yet), and so his info about how the browsers implement the elements was a bit out of date. BUT that being said, the book gave me a good concrete feel for the elements and how they should work. Every main property was gone over and it really was a good foundation for my knowledge. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning CSS, because its a great foundation and then you can use online utilities to learn more after reading the book.
