Beginning CSS… is here!

My book Beginning CSS Web Development has arrived, and is now in stock at Amazon. What a strange feeling!

Many congratulations Simon.

I’ve just taken delivery and it’s a splendid piece of work which gives those of us who are always running to catch up a fighting chance.

Thank you.

Got mine now! Well done Si, this is a great achievement. Review coming soon. :)

# Simon Collison responded on 9th September 2006 with...

Thanks everyone!

...and thanks for all the emails too. Really appreciated, and many of you seem to be enjoying the book now you’ve dived in.

I’ll be away for a few days, but I’ll answer any questions and look at reviews (go easy, Malarkey!) on Wednesday.

I’ll leave you with this great review from That Standards Guy.

# Jacquard responded on 11th September 2006 with...

The style of the book reminds me one site, but I don’t remember which exactly :\

# Tim responded on 12th September 2006 with...

Ordering the book this Friday (when I get the money).

I’ll post again here when I get the book but +ordering to New Zealand from America can take a while. =(

Great work!
