Full Product Description
To ensure the quality of the book, the chapters have been reviewed by Scott Jenson, Bryan Rieger, Tim Kadlec, Bruce Lawson and other active members of the mobile design community. The preface is written by Jeremy Keith. It wasn't easy to bring together such a stellar line-up of experts, but a compromise wasn't an option.
"Without such well-written books, we'll never build towards tomorrow mobile industry. In this book you will find that there are a lot of questions and no definitive answers, and for this reason The Mobile Book is a little to ambitious (you can't please everybody). Overall, I highly recommend that all beginning and intermediate designers and developers get a copy of this book."
"As expected, Smashing Magazine delivers a high-quality product, if you want to get ahead on the mobile techniques, your should really consider buying this book, it's excellent!"

"Smashing Magazine's The Mobile Book is as timely as it is inspiring. A decade from now we'll likely question its significance when the described world is one we take for granted. But without these ideas penned today, we'll never build towards tomorrow."
"It's important to critique this book within the context of our industry right now. There are a lot of questions and no definitive answers. For that reason The Mobile Book is a little disjointed and ambitious in theme. I take no issue with that. Attempting to neatly package such ideas would be misguided and hollow. Instead this book establishes a mindset of understanding and exploring the medium. It embraces the breadth of its domain and will set you on an exciting path."
