Ask Felgall - Book Review,
This review is from: Adapting to Web Standards: CSS and Ajax for Big Sites (Paperback)You would never guess that this book was written by so many different people just from reading it because the information contained in the book is well written, considstent, and logically ordered, something that many books with multiple authors lack.
The sub-title on the cover refers to big sites as the targetted audience for this book. I disagree with that sub-title as the content of the book is as appropriate for smaller web sites as it is for the larger ones.

I love Standards and this book,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adapting to Web Standards: CSS and Ajax for Big Sites (Paperback)I a big fan of books that simplifies technology and provides useful (not comedic) illustrations. I picked up this book and read it cover to cover within a few hours. It reads well and has few dull moments. Isn't that amazing for a Standards book?! Seriously, I'm astonished with how much funner tech books are these days. I almost view them as novels than 'work manuals.'
Obviously, if you're looking for a dry implementation book this is not the right choice for you. I would say this book is made for those who need a refresher, those who are curious, or the management type. I'm a developer myself, but I'm more of a 'convention over configuration' type. I rate this highly and compare it closely to the excellent "Bulletproof" series.
