Well since the cat seems to be out of the bag, More Eric Meyer on CSS is hot off the press and on its way to a bookstore near you. As a technical reviewer of the book (along with Porter Glendinning), I’ve read it thoroughly a few times, and I can tell you that it’s a real treat.
Eric steps you through building 10 projects, and you can’t help but come away wondering how he makes it look so easy. The resulting CSS is astoundingly light and straightforward, just the way the W3C intended it. I wish I knew CSS like Eric Meyer knew CSS.
If you loved the last one, there’s more to love in this one. If you didn’t like the last one, you should give your head a shake and buy it anyway.
(My promo copies arrived the other night and I’ll corroborate — it’s really tomato-soup-red, not hot pink.)
But the fun doesn’t stop there! We planned a special treat.
Chapter 10 deconstructs the building of a css Zen Garden design. Added just now, “15 Petals” is a collaborative effort between Eric and myself, and marks official design #100.
Holy cow. 100! There’s something wildly satisfying about having a hundred uniquely incredible submissions to a project which was started not quite a year ago. And there’s something supremely felicitous about having Eric Meyer contribute design #100.
Grow, baby, grow! I couldn’t be more proud.
