“Andy Clarke has an uncanny ability to make you reconsider what you know and wonder why you hadn’t always done it his way.” — Dave Shea, creator of the CSS Zen Garden

And it’s those uncanny abilities that make this Master Class—one-on-one instruction from Andy Clarke on camera, coupled with his bestselling full-color book containing hundreds more visual examples—the best way to absorb Andy’s amazing techniques and best practices for Web design.
