    The Art and Science of CSS - Only in stores?

    I was strolling through a bookstore the other day and, much to my surprise, found a new Sitepoint book that is not mentioned anywhere on sitepoint.com! The Art and Science of CSS (March 2007) seemed to have all the makings of a major release... full color, loaded with screenshots, plus nearly half a dozen contributing authors! Sure enough, i was able to find it on amazon w/ glowing reviews.

    Anyone know why Sitepoint would choose not to market this book on their own site? Maybe too busy rolling around in all the $$$ that The Principles of Beautiful Design brought in?

    It would seem my assumption was correct, thanks Dark T. For the record, I had tried searching both the sitepoint site and forums several times before posting this, but the forum search was timing out and the site search returned 0 results.

    Heh, yeah, i noticed the 'upcoming books' link, too... but not until after i'd ordered it from amazon. Ah well, its less expensive that way anyway.
