  • Genjutsushi

    Thanks a lot guys, looks like a good read.

  • Puzzled

    So, I’ve followed you on Twitter… now what? Is a link to download supposed to appear?

  • @Puzzled – you’ll get a direct message with your link, although I don’t know how well it’s coping at the moment. Sit tight, it will arrive.

  • Update: Twitter says we’re sending too many messages with download links! We’re working to get that limit lifted. Can’t wait? The email form works. (But we’d still love you to follow us!)

    I have been really impressed with Kevin Yank at Sitepoint and Now you are giving away a FREE book on CSS amazing. Have now downloaded it and beginning to read. Many Thanks

  • that’s awesome. thanks.

  • ATPWebmaster

    Get ready for the love! I’ve just spread the word to my Intermediate CSS-XHTML class over at Houston Community College. :)

  • Thanks SitePoint. Much appreciated! :)

  • very very exiting news thanks a lot!!

  • Chiller

    I should have waited, I bought the book some months ago and have found PDF files are much easier to work on. Perhaps your books would be better if they were spiral pages “I think thats the word” in other words when you open a page it lays flat and there is a wire or plastic hinge in the spine. It’s a great read and has been very helpfull. Thank You.

    I followed the email way to get my copy (I was already subscribed to all the news letters anyway) but nothing has arrived.

    I thought I would get an email with a link to the download. I signed up yesterday.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks for a great offer anyway though :)


  • Hi scotty118. Our servers are definitely sending emails out without problem, as far as I can tell. Could you double check your junk folder, to make sure it hasn’t mistakenly been filed there? Let me know if you have any problems:

  • I paid for this book almost a year ago. Too bad you aren’t giving away a book I haven’t read. ;-)

    Great offer! Thanks!

  • Great offer, thanks very much!

  • Liking what I’m reading so far. I already have many CSS books, but may have to add a hard copy of this to my collection – don’t like reading pdfs on trains. Great download, thank you :D

  • biba

    I have downloaded the book and it as been good so far.

  • jennic

    I bought this book through SitePoint only two days ago! It’s not always true that he who hesitates is lost. Obviously sometimes hesitation would come in handy. Oh well. Nice of you guys to offer the book for free but please consider those of us who have forked out for it. I must admit I do feel a bit peeved.

    I received an email with a link to download the zip file but the link does not work, I get the following messages:
    With IE – “You are not authorised to view this page”
    With Firefox – “This object has been blocked”
    What do I do now?

  • ladislav

    I have a FREE Download of this book.
    I tried to download the code archiv.
    The code archiv is not free for me?

  • @ ladislav — select the Amazon option in the section on where you purchased the book and enter the code word. I’m getting a new option place there for people who got the freebie, but for now just use Amazon.
