eBay Hacks - Awesome Book


eBay Hacks isn't a 'how to use eBay' book, and it doesn't try to be. Instead, it's a great collection of strategies, advice, and software tools to be used when buying and selling on eBay. I have already increased my sales and found new ways to save time creating auctions. And for buyers, there are sniping and searching hacks. The code is a little over my head, but maybe someday... Altogether, an awesome book, and a must for anyone who uses eBay.

Title: Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition

An Excellent Read


This book is an excellent resource for understanding Cascading Style Sheets. The writing style is amazingly readable, which is a stark contrast to the usual dull specifications found in online CSS references.
The author shares his detailed understanding of all the quirks of CSS1, and does a good job looking ahead to CSS2. Even if the reader doesn't follow every particular of every item, it's nice to have a feel for the programmers intention. I feel as if I have an even better grasp of whole concept of "cascading."
Even though it's a CSS version behind, this book is outstandingly usable for the HTML-familiar web designer who wants to streamline and update to cutting edge code. Personal web page owners would benefit greatly.
The only significant drawback to this book is that the book is printed entirely in black and white, which means that all examples are shown in grayscale, not in color. And this lack of color tends to undermine the in-color code examples. You have to use your imagination (or your own computer) to try out the CSS code to see what it really does on your color monitor.
With the exception of this limitation, I strongly recommend this book as a CSS learning tool and reference.
