    This book, and the one before it, stand as the strongest, clearest case for the iBooks Author format, and how it informed ePub. From the masterfully effective descriptions to the elegant layout and interactive example design, it manages to be not just the best way to get introduced to advanced CSS techniques (pioneered by the group the author worked with, not any standards body), but the most effective example of a multi-touch eBook, rivalled only by her previous book. One decade, the world believed we needed flash, now, the world believes we need jquery in similar ways….but these books demonstrate how the innovations in webkit forced adoption across all browsers of these plug-in and library-free, highly performant built-in ability to move things around with nary a line of javascript to slow things down with integer-bounds loops on the CPU. I wish she would write a book on programming 3D games in Metal with Swift. :)

    The best book that i have ever seen about css (transition and animation) , The book is written in a such a manner that you are just designing the web in the book itself , it really fun reading this book as you can change the values during the time of reading change in result is shown in real time, I have also read the previous book , CSS Transform , and I will tell everyone if you are really like to write a better , not better the best web experince by simply using html and css , because now you dont need to wrtite a lot of javascript to do animation. A must buy for geeks who loves to code for web(specially the front end guys).

    It’s tough to figure this stuff out… Looking at the specs results in a lot of tech-speak that’s hard to digest. I’d basically relegated myself to copying already-done examples. But with this guide I found I was able to parse it well enough to write my own from scratch. This guide will never leave my side.
  • Gorgeous, effective. Expectations exceeded.

    Beautiful book. Like the author’s last book on transitions, hands down the most fun and efficient way to learn how to animate with CSS. This book is a confidence builder too. It trains your subconscious away from the notion that using CSS to create great web experiences is in any way difficult. It treats CSS authoring as true artistry.
  • A handy companion!

    Animation can be tricky, especially when you are declaring it in a written language. This book helps you see what you can do with the various language features. Even if you do this stuff everyday, you can’t go wrong with this helpful guide.
