Hi Keith,
I'm fighting with CSS positioning right now. Therefore, do you have a schedule for the release of the next chapters ? No hurry, just for information.
cheers,
Andreas

Hi, sorry for the delay responding (I’ve been in conference land lately). I got the ball rolling on this. The next few chapters should be added to the MEAP soonish. Stay tuned smilie

I am a little behind schedule, so I doubt it will ship in March... but I am much further than the MEAP would indicate. I’ve got 12 chapters written, but they undergo a round of edits before getting added to MEAP.

While You Are Waiting for CSS in Depth
You can always check out one of Keith's WONDERFUL presentations to tide you over. Stop Thinking In Pixels from the CSS Conference 2016 (available on YouTube) brings CSS in Depth to life! Keep up the great work, Keith. Obviously, this book will be worth waiting for.

Manning doesn't care one iota about the contracts it has with its customers, or even obeying the law (lying about a product you are selling is - obviously - an offence). Unbelievably, nobody has bothered to update the publication date even two months after it has passed. If it comes out before 2018 I will be surprised.

I bought this MEAP in good faith and have been very let down.

And when it does come out, it won't even mention SASS. Quite why anyone would write a book on CSS in 2017 and not mention SASS and PostCSS is completely beyond me,

The book was rescheduled for Fall 2017. About SASS I guess this book is called "In Depth", SASS/LESS are not part of the specification.
