Exactly appropriate for its subject matter, this small pocket reference is just what I needed, with nothing more.

It opens with the basics: a thorough coverage of import rules, display roles and positioning, among other things, in a format which did more for me than the a prior edition of "The Definitive Guide" was able to clearly express.

The second chapter lists values which can be applied to the CSS rules.

The third chapter covers selectors, in a useful reference-style manner which makes it easy for me to find several of the structures I haven't been, but that I should be using.

The final and largets of chapters lists the CSS properties along with their application, structure and description.

An index is provided in the back of the guide for quick lookup.

I find this pocket guide ideal. If I had never read the full-sized book, I would probably have been able to get by just fine with this one, though I'd have missed out on browser compatibility asides and other useful tidbits not found here. I completely recommend this pocket reference. It's everything I had hoped it would be, but if you already know CSS, then don't expect it to be anything more than the handy, pocket-sized reference that it is.
Am finishing up a CSS 3 class on Udemy. Along with my ledger-sized cheat sheet and Mozilla/W3C...this is something I expect to be using years from now. May eventually have to purchase another copy when I wear it out.
This is an excellent pocket guide. It is concise and up to date. I am a software development student, and this book has helped me to answer other students' questions. Just last week, I found the right style property to complete a lab excercise in a few short moments, using this pocket reference -- my friend had been struggling with online resources for minutes. I remembered that this book was in my bag, and zowie! Problem solved. I am just learning web development, but from my perspective, I cannot see why this book could be worthy of a score less than five. The cost- and size-to-benefit ratio of this book is incomparable. I am new to software and web development, but not to technology, and this review comes from the heart of someone with bookshelves full of how-to guides.
Book arrived in only 3 days. Was in almost brand new condition. Product gave me just the information I was looking for a real great price...
Nice little book but I never end up using it. Much easier to just do a quick search online.
This is a great reference book. I bought this after looking at an earlier edition of this same book that a coworker had.

So why buy the book instead of just looking it all up online? Well, the reason I did was because there are things in the book that is NOT easily found online - although now that I know the technical term, they're a bit easier to find. Only drawback was when looking at the index, it stopped at M - or maybe there just aren't any CSS terms past "media attribute"? Not a big deal since the properties are in alphabetical order. It was probably just a fluke with this particular run.
Must have item.
As a backend programmer that sometimes needs to deal with the front-end, I found this book very useful. Just reading all the titles of the book gives you some ideas of all the capabilities of CSS3. I don't give 5 stars only because: 1. Is a bit outdated. 2. No reference to compatibiliy between browsers (-moz-, -o-, -webkit-).
