I now have in my possession two real physical paper copies of Eric Meyer on CSS. It looks as beautiful as I could have hoped—better. 310 pages of practical CSS, divided into 13 projects, each and every page in glorious full color to really show what CSS can do. I’m really, really, really very happy right now.
Sadly, this joy is tempered by the fact that most e-tailers think the book will become available in August; Barnes & Noble is the exception, with a fairly realistic 9 July availability date. Even the New Riders Web site claims the book isn’t available, and encourages you to search for a newer edition(!). Trust me, folks: this baby is revved up and ready to go. There just seem to be a few annoying roadblocks in front of the starting gate. If you’re interested in ordering a copy, and of course I hope you are, please try again in a few days. I’m looking at the two copies as I type this (please excuse any typos), so I know the book actually exists.
