  1. Excellent news! I’m always on the lookout for explanations and how to’s, thank you Gary for putting this together! 🙂

  2. Great ebook! I’m glad I bought it. And Gary thanks for your support. I highly recommend this ebook for newbies. The standard OSC look is such a drag and this ebook injected some life into my website. I have a highly modded site and I was able to make the upgrade with little difficulty. I can’t wait until Gary produce a more advanced design ebook. Now the 960gs is not so scary.

  3. On my “to do” list was getting around to improving the design on our sites. Gary’s ebook is exactly what I needed. Easy to read. Concepts explained very well. Lot’s of tips, tricks and tweaks to get a site looking good and working very nicely.
