The official book of California Stylesheets


(and that's okay)

It's a book about writing CSS.
And not writing CSS.


You suck at CSS

by Kyle Yeats

This book is about writing CSS. It's also about not writing CSS. It's aimed at people who want to learn CSS, people who want to avoid CSS, amateurs, professionals and everyone in-between. The book aims to provide context as to why CSS and the design ecosystem surrounding it are the way they are. It's written to support the California Stylesheets CSS framework. It's all about getting things done fast on the frontend using web technology, with a focus on maintaining that speed in teams.

The Gumroad version contains a secret chapter that spills the dirt on CSS preprocessors, a tech CASS no longer uses.
