Excellent Style!

Amazing Coverage w/ Clarity

Anybody wanting to learn CSS should buy this book. All that is needed is an understanding of HTML - - no previous CSS experience is necessary.
The book starts out by explaining what CSS is, the need for it and why & how you should use it. You'll be taught different ways of linking style sheets to your HTML documents, and which of those ways is supported by which browsers [versions].
The meat of the book gives descriptions on each CSS element, practical examples, a heads-up on browser support issues, and even tips and tricks to work around those problems.
This book is by far *the book* for learning, or even just brushing up on CSS.
The only thing more I could have asked for with this book was coverage of CSS Level 2. CSS Level 1 was covered superiorly in this book, however Level 2 was barely touched on. Guess I'll have to wait for the next edition.

Mastering...I dont think so....

It's a great book for beginners to intermediate Windows 2000 Administrators.If you are at a senior Level, this book is not for you. How to setup network printers, understanding network cabling and setting up a modem, its far from Mastering Windows 2000.

A very easy-to-understand book for starting JAVA

I have gone through the book 2 times. I constantly refer to it and it lies at the side of my table with the Java Developers's Alamanac. This is the bible of Java. One star less due to it's sheer size. Looks intimidating at first glance. Eckel has tried to explain too many things. Probably should divide it into two parts.
