The Book Of CSS3
By: Peter Gasston
Publisher: O’Reilly Media
There is no need to read other books on CSS. If you are new to the subject, simply reading the text and noticing how Peter Gasston approaches each section will give you a crash course on the subject. If you already have some CSS knowledge then this book will fill in a lot of the gaps in your knowledge and get you up to date.
The book begins with Media Queries, one of the basics of responsive design. I loaded the first two examples (one for a mobile first design and one for a landscape/portrait response) in my text editor and modified them – and kept experimenting. I then continued and built on this basic responsive site by adding the new CSS3 selectors (CH3) and pseudo classes (CH4) and kept going. My opinion: if you approach the book in this way, and take some time with the text and examples, you will gain a lot – I did.
The other examples are very good and simply looking through them will give you a good overview of the subject. There are also good links to take your knowledge further, and with an author as knowledgeable as this it is easy to be confident that the links are the right ones.
A good resource – thank you Peter Gasston.
