Pocket Style, Take Two

A picture of the cover of 'CSS Pocket Reference, Second Edition'

Just a few hours ago, I received a FedEx package containing a brand spankin’ new copy of the CSS Pocket Reference, 2nd Edition.  This new edition includes all of the CSS2 and CSS2.1 properties and values, information and algorithms covering the box model, table layout, font selection, and more.  It’s almost 130 pages, and that’s without a single page of it taken up by support charts.  The first edition has taken some flak for being obsolete; this new edition should address those concerns.  (Unless of course you want a CSS3 pocket reference, in which case this book won’t help you, and anyway, you’ll need much bigger pockets.)

And it’s still just $9.95!  What a bargain.  You should buy two.  That way you can have one for your pocket, where it will be handily available at all times, and the other for your bookshelf, where it will stay crisp and neat.

For a while I’d had a vague plan that, when this book’s arrival was announced, I would take that opportunity to say that I was taking a break from book writing for a while.  So much for that plan; I just today agreed to start another project.  Looks as though Molly was right about me.  I wonder how long it will be until there’s a cure…

    I knew there was a good reason I was holding off getting the CSS pocket reference Eric Mayer just got his copy of the new edition. Looks like something else to add to my wishlist

    Quick Review: CSS Pocket Reference
    I have an embarrassingly-large collection of O’Reilly’s [Pocket Reference][1] books on my desk. They’re the best value for money of any computer book, and I find them more handy than online references in many cases. I’ve probably referred to Eric M…
