Recommend this book?

Hi guys. Im thinking about ordering this book. Do somebody own it already, and can say a couple of words about it? http://www.sitepoint.com/books/design2/

Haven't read it, but it's available on Safari Books. Skimmed through the contents, and some of those topics are covered pretty decently here at Treehouse.

Yeah - I have it & would recommend it (any Sitepoint book, as long as it isn't getting too old)

I think it looks great, one of the best I've seen about learning the fundamentals of design concerning the web.

I have it, but can't recommend yet since I haven't had an opportunity to read it.

I got the book as a result of hearing about the well-received first edition. I absolutely trust Sitepoint with their fundamental-first approach.

I can trust spending a weekend with any of their books and believe I will be more well-rounded, understand the topic in a straightforward way.

I however warn you they tend to have more errors than most books from other publishers. Either that or they are fast to notify their readers about them more than others.

I willl buy it, and see how it is. Else they got there 30 days refund policy, so it can't hurt i guess.
