Format: Paperback
Early on, the author points to an interesting statistic that, in 2010, traffic to mobile websites grew 600 percent. This point frames the discussion of what the book's focus is on, mainly that mobile is important, mobile is different than previous mental models, and it is growing at an alarming rate.

The author goes on to enlighten us to the fact that this isn't really a mobile or small screen problem that we are dealing with. This is a problem of connected devices with a wide ranges of screen sizes, device capabilities, and network speeds.

One last big point at the outset, multiple sites based on screen size do not scale.

From this beginning the author introduces the device-agnostic concept which simply put means you can't know what device will be using your site so don't build your site for one device.

At this point a two of high level concepts are introduced: Future Friendly and Progressive Enhancement. These form the base principles discussed through out the rest of the book when discussing Responsive Web Design.

This book covers a lot of ground from planning and workflow through responsive media and server side detection. Implementing Responsive Design even delves into the often ignored topic of responsive content.

The intended audience is beginner to intermediate, one should be well versed in the basics of CSS and HTML prior to beginning this book. Advanced topics are hinted at but not dealt with in any depth so no need to worry. You can safely ignore those topics and come back to them as you build your skill set.

While this book purports to be simply about Responsive Web Design, I would say that it is much more than that.

Implementing Responsive Design by Tim Kadlec brings together project planning, creative design, and detailed coding techniques into a single book. It is written for mixed audience. About half the content is code related, and half covers workflow. It's a compilation of different ideas and techniques from industry leaders assembled in a logical and easy-to-digest format.

I've read every book published to date related to responsive web design. This book will save you time and money with both technical implementation details, and workflow process. I highly recommend it.

If you're interested in more detail I've published a detailed book review on responsivedesign.ca

I liked Tim's style of writing. Instead a "do this, then do this" approach, he weaves the how-to into a running dialog about the why's and where's of when to use parts of the fluid web design. A good read.

This is THE book to get when considering responsive design. The book is divided into clear step-by-step sections to show you what is needed along with code examples online if you want to see it in action. There is so much information packed in each chapter, I typically read each chapter at least twice. It is very clearly written with images to help solidify the concepts. In each chapter there is a two page interview with someone in the field and that person talks about their experience. These were always interesting and added to the understanding of what it's like in the "real" world. I found the side note recommendations for other books, code, and websites very helpful. They allow the book to "extend" in whatever ways you need it to.

HIghly recommend.

An important and timely book. What is more, it is a pleasure to read, unlike many books on technology. The author is not only an expert but has a broad vision and a philosophical perspective on the big picture issues in the evolution of the internet. Well worth reading.

Excellent book covering more aspects of the responsive design problem than most other books. This includes IE6, 7, and 8 compatibility; mobile-first design, managing fixed-width assets (e.g. AdSense sidebar block images), using em's over %'s in font-size because of mobile zooming considerations, selectively serving reduced sized images to mobile, JavaScript to reduce paragraph sections (on desktop) to a clickable headings (on mobile), and one navigational solution for mobile (clickable drop-down menu). It also covers several tool options for evaluating your responsive implementation and testing it online with mobile emulators.

What this book doesn't cover is how JavaScript frameworks (e.g. jQuery) can be used for responsive design, or how to make a Facebook plugin responsive, but this maybe a different book about JavaScript/PHP solutions for responsive design.
