This year I had the pleasure of completing my second book, and the first book that I authored all by myself: Jump Start CSS published by SitePoint.
It’s part of their “Jump Start” series of shorter books that provide an introduction to specific web development and design topics.
Most, if not all, of the readers of this website will not benefit too much from this book, seeing as it’s aimed at absolute beginners in CSS. Nonetheless here is a list of the book’s features:
- Covers every major aspect of CSS (selectors, specificity, different value types, etc.)
- Guides you through building a one-page sample website, step by step, teaching new concepts along the way
- Covers custom web fonts
- Introduces many new CSS features (transitions, transforms, animations, shadows, media queries, etc.)
- Introduces responsive web design techniques
- Includes a final chapter on CSS debugging
So if you happen to be looking for a beginners book on CSS or know someone that does, here are the purchase options:
- Print or E-Book package from SitePoint (PDF, EPUB, MOBI)
- Paperback via Amazon
- Kindle version via Amazon
- Print and/or E-Book package from O’Reilly
Two Free Copies!
Naturally, as the author of the book, I’ve been given some complimentary copies and I’m glad to offer a print version to one reader and one E-Package version (EPUB, PDF, MOBI) to another reader.
To get one of these copies, here’s what you can do: Write to me via the contact form on this website and tell me why you’d like a copy of the book. I’ll pick two readers, one for the E-Package version and the other for the print version (which I’ll ship to you anywhere in the world). I’ll give everyone a couple of weeks before I make my decision.
If you’d like a review copy that you can write about on your blog or elsewhere, use the same contact form. I’ll contact SitePoint and see if they’ll give you access to an electronic version.
