Robin Nixon’s CSS & CSS3 Crash Course is for absolutely anyone with any amount of previous experience, because it teaches both CSS and CSS3. If you already know some CSS you can use the first few chapters as a refresher, or skim over them. If not they offer a simple, straight-forward and easy-to-follow introduction.

About the Author
Robin started his writing career in the Cheshire homes for disabled people, where he was responsible for setting up computer rooms in a number of residential homes, evaluating and tailoring hardware and software so that disabled people could use the new technology, and writing supporting documentation and articles for a selection of national magazines.
After this Robin’s career became a hundred percent writing-oriented when he joined a large magazine publisher, where he held a variety of different editorial positions, before leaving to become a self-employed writer.
With the dawn of the Internet in the 1990s, Robin branched out into developing websites (including the world’s first licensed Internet radio station). In order to enable people to continue to surf while listening, Robin also developed the first known pop-up windows.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s Robin and his family moved to the USA a couple of times, once to run a web design company in California, and then again to set up an English Tearoom in Texas. In between times they ran several successful pubs, bed and breakfasts and nightclubs in England.
In recent years Robin has begun to focus more closely on motivation and personal improvement in his writing, while still continuing to produce more in his popular series of books on computing, which have now been translated into several different languages.
Robin lives on the south-east coast of England (where he writes full time), along with his five children and wife Julie (a trained nurse and university lecturer) – between them they also foster three disabled children.
