Book Review: Smashing Book 3
June 20, 2012
Well, I guess third time’s the charm because Smashing Magazine finally made it. Their third volume hits the nail on all chapters and it’s just a joy to read.
Redesign The Web
If you read my review of their previous book you’ll understand why I had low expectations on this one. Gladly, it surprised me from the beginning. The whole book had a theme - Redesign the Web - and all topics were somehow connected.
The authors and the mood of the writting is changed as well. It feels more personal, like a friendly talk with some really smart guys.
Another part that deserves mention is the one on Photoshop, although I’d like to see more screenshots among the content. Nonetheless, it’s another great chapter. One of the great tips they wrote is about using Photoshop slices for css sprites. I never thought about that and it makes perfect sense!
You Want Need This Book
With a new approach and a refreshed idea, the Smashing Book 3 is definitely a book I recommend.
