This 320 page book features articles from a bunch of highly respected web folks such as Jeremy Keith, Trent Walton, Brad Frost, Josh Clark… the list goes on. The book doesn’t pretend to be a technical manual for mobile development, instead it gives personal insights into developing for mobile with tips & techniques from a bunch of different perspectives. Chapters within The Mobile Book do not have to be read in a linear fashion and I found myself jumping back and forth between chapters whilst discovering new ways of working. Every chapter is full of golden nuggets of information and the standard of writing is, as you would expect from a Smashing Magazine book, impeccable.
I must also point out that the cover and the illustrations within are simply beautiful. It is obvious that a lot of thought and care has gone into making this book a pleasure to look at.
Quite simply, anybody looking into designing or developing for mobile devices (and you ALL should be) needs to buy this book.
