Not really essential
I found this book quite dissapointing. I thought from what I read in the book summary that it would be a book on more advanced techniques, but it was really quite basic. Not a good beginning point for learners, and too basic for people who know more than the basics. Also, about 40% of the book is made up of reference appendices, disappointing, since the book isn't all that long (7 chapters, only 3-4 of which actually address real DHMTL). I would not have purchased this book if I knew before hand what I know now.

Serious flaws--I'm disappointed by my fellow reviewers.

Great Refresher - Good starting place
Great place to start CSS and dHTML or refresh your memory plus a handy reference. This book tells you exactly how to create the nice little dHTML menus that you see at places like eddiebauer.com and others. Missing a few things. For you beginners, this does not directly cover the difference in Class vs. ID in the div tag but more hints at it. You're supposed to take what he's doing as gospel. Might be missing a few of the cool tricks from dHTML but overall it's great.
