Not surprisingly, CSS3 animations have gained considerable popularity, especially in smartphone apps. CSS3 makes it very easy to create animations and transitions and allows for dynamic effect without plugins like Flash® that often doesn’t work well and does not work at all in some settings.

The book is great at showing what is now possible and explaining it in an easy to understand, yet clear and concise language. I like the fact that Learning CSS3 Animations and Transitions has such a clear focus. Alexis Goldstein is a good writer; she has previously co-authored the book HTML5 & CSS3 for the Real World with Louis Lazaris and Estelle Weyl.
To my mind it is very suitable for beginner to intermediate level developers who are just starting to work on animation.
