I am a Web Developer, working alone, developing small web sites.
In my work I use only simple CSS and consider myself as a beginner perhaps intermediate in CSS. Therefore, recently I thought of improving my CSS skills, and planned on getting a book.
As the book's title suggest, It is aimed at Big sites, large projects, and, High Traffic websites.
Do you think such book would be too much for me at that point? Should I start with a book aimed at beginners, and small projects, or does your book suits beginners as well as experts and team leaders?

I stepped through the book on Amazon and I think the book looks great. I have been involved with high and low end traffic sites. It looks like a book for best practices regarding CSS.

Hey,

The book is definitely not targetted at absolute beginners, but I would say that if you are past this level, there is a lot that you can learn from it — especially if you don't have experience working on larger projects. Maybe in the future this is the kind of project you'd like to be prepared to work on?

When working on smaller projects, there are a lot of things we can do that we can't when working on larger ones. There are a lot more visitors at stake, more bandwidth costs, etc. Even if you don't apply everything we mention on the book, some of the tips on how to write CSS more effectively can still be applied to smaller sites.

Thanks.
