I know I am biased, seeing as I penned the first installment, but having finally taken delivery of Pro CSS Techniques I am hugely excited about the contents, and can’t help thinking what an attractive, complimentary pair of books they really are.
Look out for the third installment - CSS For Ewoks hitting book stores sometime in 2007… possibly. Jabba, jabba, jabba.
Thanks so much, man!
And yeah, damn Andy Clarke for his bad timing on his beautiful book! :) Seriously—I think the audiences are a bit different. Pro CSS Techniques is aimed at web pros who have a basic understanding of CSS, but haven’t really jumped into it’s advanced uses. Transcending CSS seems more aimed at designers who are very experienced with CSS and want to go super-advanced. It also focuses more on design than code, whereas Pro CSS Techniques is a code book first.
Great photo, too—the books do look nice together, don’t they? :)

Christmas shopping list now completed, is it so bad to buy themselves a small gift?
Joking aside, I’ve just finished reading/studying your book (Novice to Pro)and it’s fantastic. Good work there Colly. Read it in two weeks and spent many an hour after work going through it so I will have to put the sequal on hold until Q1 2007 - I owe the time to the missus.
Have a good new year and thanks again for a great CSS book.
Well, Pro CSS techniques does seem an excellent book, but there sure is a lot to live up to!
Incidentally, I’ve already pre-ordered by copy of CSS for Ewoks (considering how good PHP for Ewoks was, it was an easy decision).
maybe the Return of The Jedi is sooner than you think Si, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pro-CSS-HTML-Design-Patterns/dp/1590598040

Cue Star Wars related inuendos :)
My love of books says I should get the Pro book to compliment yours but my wallet says “No”. I think I need to get my hands on a copy first. Malarkey’s book on the other hand… the heart is beating the wallet into the ground and looking for a fat man in a red outfit to mug ;-)

CSS by furry, bad-tempered little guys? It’ll never catch on... ;)
