I hope that this is not off topic, but I would like some advice.

I learn fastest and better with hands on teaching.

In my quest to learn CSS I have accumulated five books. I do not know which one to start with. As my eye sight is not too good, I do not want to read through them all to begin with. Any advice gratefully received.

CSS - The Missing Manual - David Sawyer McFarland.
CSS in 24 hours - Kynn Bartlett
Cascading Style Sheets - Owen Briggs etc.
CSS Mastery - Andy Budd.
Professional CSS Cascading Style Sheets for Web Design - Chris Schmitt etc.

CSS Mastery - Andy Budd

This is one of my favorites. It is well-written, easy to read, and is full of examples that you can actually use. Once you finish it, the book makes an excellent desktop reference for many browser bugs you'll encounter as you develop sites. :thumbsup:

Thank you.
I have had a look at it, but it does not seem to have actual hands on teaching. My memory needs re-inforcing with actual project work.

Perhaps I have missed it, reading quickly, but it all seemed to be just explaining the code.
Necessary, but not at my stage of knowledge. I do agree that it will make an excellent reference once I have gotten off the ground, as it were.
