"Rachel Andrew's knowledge of CSS Grid is second to none-and she's a seasoned educator. So it should come as no surprise that the book in front of you is the absolute clearest, easiest-to-follow guide to getting started with CSS Grid-based layouts. Spend a little over an hour with this brief book and you'll be authoring modern layouts in no time." -AARON GUSTAFSON

"In the time since CSS grid landed in most major browsers, numerous developers have been discovering how much easier it is to create layouts with Grid. This edition has been expanded to include subgrid, and also contains new examples that showcase what is now possible with the latest version of the spec. If you want to fully understand this powerful layout tool, Rachel's book is one of the best resources you'll find." -CHEN HUI JING

"If you want to understand grid layout (and you do), you should read this book. Mentally making the connection between syntax and finished product is tough at first, and Rachel's clear explanation and use of diagrams really help conceptualize things. The next generation of CSS developers will laugh at us for not having used grids for layout before-learn the new spec and you'll be laughing with them." -CHRIS COYIER
