    What is the single best book for learning CSS? I know HTML and javascript already, but I am looking for a good book that people can recommend that will teach me at least the basics of CSS (box model, cascade, specificity, etc.)

    I think 'Beginning CSS Web Development From Novice to Professional' is a good start.

    My reference is HTML, XHTML & CSS Sixth Edition by Elizabeth Castro. I don't need it but for the rare occasions that I looked up something, it was there and clearly explained.

    I didn't learn CSS with the book though, I learned pretty much everything online.

    Also, I bought it about 3 years ago but it probably still exists.

    If you want Both XHMTL and CSS then use this: HTML and CSS

    if you want just CSS I recommend this: CSS Book

    One of my first CSS books was Eric Meyer's CSS Pocket Reference.

    Having a good CSS reference isn't something you'll out-learn as you get more experience - it'll stay on your shelf for years.

    Forget the book.

    Forget buying a book. You need the ability to copy+paste. Check out this site.

    This is a great resource for all things HTML and CSS.

    Also, check this site out for fantastic navigation starters.


    You can learn everything you need to know about CSS online especially the hacks; those are very important.

    Godspeed to you and your CSS endeavors.
