SitePoint Books Rated Best of 2007

Matthew Magain

Two of SitePoint’s titles have been rated the best web design books of 2007 by Canadian book review site YYZtech.ca.

Rachel Andrew’s The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks (2nd Edition) makes it onto the list. Here’s what the reviewer had to say:

Another book on CSS? Yes, this one (2nd edition) is up to date with the newest version of IE and is well layed-out that makes it an easy read … in an attractive, full-colour package. In addition, there are a number of break-out boxes throughout the book that provide additional information .. with a sense of humour: e.g. the warning sections are illustrated with various items ranging from a bicycle horn (look for) to a hand-grenade (caution).

Also on the list is Shirley Kaiser’s Deliver First Class Websites: 101 Essential Checklists. From the review:

As you read the chapters you get the idea that a whole lot of experience was brought to bare- looking at the footnotes on just about every page, they are full of references to other sources readers might investigate if they wish to learn more about a particular point.

A team of hard-working staff (commissioning, editing, marketing, etc) go into creating a book, so it’s not just the author that takes pride in the end result. We love seeing reviews and lists that include SitePoint books, so if you know of any others, be sure to let us know!

    Not to take away from the brilliance of any of the other Sitepoint books (I own one of the two mentioned above), with the sales and popularity of the “The Principles of Beautiful Web Design” book, I’m quite surprised it (too?) didn’t make the list. Nonetheless, congrats to you, Sitepoint, and your team of professionals!
