    1. A very short book; I think it took me an hour or so to read all the way through. BUT brings together all the threads of the Responsive Web Design concept in a clear and useful way. (He's self-deprecating about it, but the math for calculating a flexible grid's proportions based on a pixel grid is easy and just what I needed.) I ended the book fired up to do design this way from now on, and to go back and update sites I already have out there. Great color screenshots, easy-to-read code. And I lik [...]


    2. Silly comment reader, don't read this comment when you could be reading the book this comment is about. It's awesome and might change web development for the better for the rest of humanity and you are just wasting time reading a review that has little to nothing to do with it.Seriously, go read the book. You could have already read the first page by now.


    3. Ugh.This book was uselessly beginnerish.I can't imagine that anyone who'd pick this book up would be less than an intermediate Web designer. Beginners are way too focused on the functionality of their products to really think much of design beyond the basics. This book is targeted toward them and they're not going to read it.


    4. Finally a book written by a designer who can actually write. Ethan Marcotte has a lively style, supporting his statements with vibrant anecdotes, analogies, jokes, and concrete examples. He grounds the book in traditional architecture and art history just enough to give it depth without detracting from its focus of responsive web design. My favorite quotation from the book is: Pretend for a moment that you're working as a front-end developer. (If you're already a front-end developer, well, prete [...]


    5. I've just finished going through the book and it's examples. It's quite handy in that it's collected several techniques for building a 'responsive' layout design. However, only look to this book for theory and history. This is NOT a step-by-step guide in building a responsive site from scratch. Previous experience in HTML, CSS, and Javascript is highly recommended.See, this book has been written like many of the web development (html/css/js/php) tutorials you can find online by simply performing [...]


    6. Like all the previous items from A Book Apart, this is concise, useful and finds room for a little humour too. This one is about making websites that will cope with the multitude of different browser sizes and contexts web developers have to deal with these days.I've read almost all the articles Marcotte references, and had started using some of the principles before beginning this book. But Marcotte brings them altogether in a way that has thoroughly convinced me to give up on merely elastic la [...]


    7. Is it too soon to call this book seminal? A decade ago, Jeffrey Zeldman's Designing WIth Web Standards certainly fit that description, convincing many of us to drop our table-based layouts in favour of accessible, standards-compliant CSS layouts. By my estimation Ethan Marcotte's 'Responsive Web Design' looks set to become just as formative by calling for another new approach to designing websites - this time, one better suited to the ever-increasing number of devices and browsers that people us [...]


    8. Responsive web design is the idea that, when creating a web page, it should work seamlessly and correctly on all screen sizes and devices, from an iPhone or Android phone up through a widescreen desktop computer. But with so many computing devices available today (and many more coming in the future), you can't hope to customize the experience for each device.Instead, the page's HTML, CSS, and Javascript should adapt to the device's reported capabilities. This book uses an example site to demonst [...]


    9. I found the whole book particularly interesting and believe anyone web-business-related can benefit from reading it. Why I find it interesting? Because:1. The book is technical enough for dev people not to get bored when reading, but covers all the fundaments: fluid coding (em, %), media-queries, progressive enhancement rather than degradation. (Chapters II - IV)2. The book is not technical to much for designers - going through 'technical' part of the book gives design-heads an idea of what dev [...]


    10. Web design is a field that's always progressing with time. And as a web designer it might seem intimidating. Because new standards are brought into play every 3 years, of even sooner. So it's a field that in which reinventing your self is is not an option. This book goes over the new creative method for designing websites that's sustainable for creating pages for all different devices. I would say if your feeling alarmed about approaching this new coding method. Don't be. Ethan Marcotte makes hi [...]


    11. (3.5) Finally finished this book again! When I had read this the first time, I didn't notice the bit regarding working with engineering collaboratively, but I appreciated the recommendation to get to a live prototype in code and iterate the design with engineering, rather than spinning your wheels in a design tool.This was a good updated primer for RWD, but I think the Responsible Responsive book has more tactical knowledge for engineers looking to implement responsive designs.


    12. This is one of the best books to start learning about responsive web design. What makes it great is that it's not just a technical book on how to apply HTML and CSS to create responsive websites, it discuss the history, the principles and motivation behind the RWD movement, as well as providing numerous links to other excellent articles about this topic.After finishing this book I feel much more motivated to dig deeper and research about this topic.


    13. Excelente libro introduccion al responsive web design. Lo que me gustó es que es muy conceptual y los ejemplos técnicos de como implementarlo son bastante puntuales y ejemplificadores. Me imagino que a la hora de realizar una aplicación completa es necesario saber mucho más que eso, pero lo bueno de este libro es el enfoque desde el punto de vista del diseño y no solo del código.


    14. Highly recommended. Along with HTML5 For Web Designers, it is easily the best of "A Book Apart" offerings. It's a quick read with concrete examples – you can start using what you learn here immediately. It is well written and even funny at times.


    15. A really well written and thoroughly illustrated conceptualization of responsive web design. This is a book for coders and non-coders alike that provides ammunition for the fight to redevelop organizational websites that can be accessed device nonspecifically. A very good read if you're in the throes of working on a new website and would like it to function universally.


    16. I don't normally buy books like this, but this is a great tutorial into proper responsive web design; very well written and simple to understand. I've not finished it - because halfway through everything kind of "clicked" and I could do the job I wanted to do. I'd recommended it.


    17. Great book, It helps to understand why Responsive web design is important now a days, and gives some code that helps understand the concept and implementing the idea.


    18. A good overview of responsive design; however, when you got to the end and the issue of mobile-first design arose, it felt a little as if the rest of the book took you to a partial dead end.



    19. This is indeed a must read for front-end developers and web designers as well. The practices applied within this book have been standards for so many years and we've been following them already. The book helped me explain to my fellow designers about the philosophy behind RWD and how can we effectively produce a responsive design with less iterations and frustration. Before sharing this book with the designers I used to work with we used to struggle with their intention to always have a perfect [...]


    20. Хорошо объясняет идеи RWD. Можно за несколько часов прочитать и всё понять. Вполне подходит для широкого круга читателей, с минимальным опытом разработки.С другой стороны, про организацию процесса здесь достаточно мало, про Mobile First только в двух словах и т.п. Мне кажется, что [...]


    21. Very quick read but 150 pages for 3-4 main points is a bit excessive. On the plus, each one of those points is heavily reinforced and plenty of examples are given for each. Great intro book towards responsive web design



    22. Good overview of responsive design approach. I had been reading on the topic for a little while (including some of the articles referenced in this book), but it seemed to me very advanced, arcane even, and I was hesitant to plunge into it (general designing with web standards given the constraints of the popular CM systems is difficult enough). After reading this book, however, I see that it is not as dark as I had painted it.Mr. Marcotte starts out by making the case for responsive web design a [...]



    23. A friend gave me a copy of this when he heard I got a job as an in-house web designer and would be focusing on redesigning websites to be more responsive. I only just barely understood what responsive design was when I started reading this book, but by the end of it I had a clear sense of the principles and how they could be implemented.If you're a web designer and know a little about responsive design, then you're at least aware of Marcotte's 2010 article on the subject, on which this book is b [...]


    24. I read this book for the UX Book Club Copenhagen, and we'll discuss it in 2 days time.The book itself is a delight to read. It's easy to get through, well laid out, conversational language, clear examples. I mean, if Jason Santa Maria helped to design it, that is kind of cheating. :) I mean, he's a superstar designer.I like the shortlinks system used in the book. And it's nice that the long form is spelled out at the back of the book. The shortlink text is really easy to remember. If any get bro [...]


    25. I am a designer who doesn't code; at my job the design team works closely with the development team when designing a website. I maintain a rough familiarity with how HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are used to build out a site, so that the sketches, and later the designs, I show the developers are conceived with an understanding of the possibilities and likely to need few major changes in order to reach fruition.This book is a wonderfully concise and beautifully written (read: inspiring!) overview of [...]


    26. For everybody who has not read this book yet and would like to know more about responsive web design, I would highly recommend it to you. I cannot compare it with other books of this kind as I have not read any others, but I can draw my conclusions by the content I have read.I liked it. Much. It was both helpful, easy-going and humorous because you had the feeling the author was really talking to you.Well, okay. I suppose we can clean that up. If it’s really bothering you, I mean. Besides, he [...]


    27. I had the opportunity to read some snippets of text from this book before purchasing the real deal. The book is well written and is a pleasure to read. It introduces you to the history of the web medium and projects some of the reasons why a designer/developer would want to consider building a fluid grid design based website.The concepts presented in the book are easy enough to follow and come with little code snippets that help illustrate the task at hand. It has wonderful pretty pictures showi [...]
