Format: Paperback
The first half of the book is largely devoted to why you should make a mobile website, and why to design it ahead of your website for PC browsers. If you are already sold on that idea, you can safely skip it.

The second half of the book is full of really helpful interaction design insights, aimed at UX professionals who work mainly on websites for PCs, and are making a transition to designing for mobile. If that describes you, you should read this book. I also appreciated that its focus is on the mobile web, not of the design of native applications. He does a good job not focussing solely on iOS, and lets you know how the patterns he describes apply to Android and other devices. I'm working on a mobile application called Dicewalla and this book has helped me figure out and prioritize the product roadmap.

Mobile First is the second book I have read by this author. The other one - Web Form Design - was also wonderful. His writing style is clear, concise and contains no waste. He makes his points about designing for mobile in a simple, one concept at a time way and supports his contentions with loads of examples backed up by real user research. Once you finish reading this short book, you have a very good idea about how to navigate the really small design space available to mobile app & mobile web developers. No one should skip this one...It takes about 4 hours to read and I walked away with about 10 major ideas to help on our projects.

Luke Wroblewski is always worth reading & this book is no exception.
He argues cogently for why the mobile design should be done first (i.e. before the laptop one) and then illustrates quickly the principles of good mobile design. It may take you only a few hours to read this book, but the ideas will become a permanent part of your design orientation. Anyone who designs apps or sites should read this - and it is very enjoyable, too. Wroblewski's points are well illustrated with examples.

Format: Paperback
When I read the book "How to create the next Facebook" of Tom Taulli 3 months ago, Tom also suggested the tech start-ups should start with products for mobile before web app. And the book "Mobile first" seems to confirm this in my mindset.

"Mobile first" is written as "starter guides" that is, for those who start switch designed for mobile applications. Therefore, along with a brief writing style of A Book Apart, the book consists of seven chapters and just wrapped in about 150 pages. Start with explaining "why mobile first" (sort of question), Luke direction immediately focus the reader on how to get started, or to think about designing for mobile applications. Of course, everyone understands mobile app design requires attention to many things, but the point of making the move from web design to starting mobile design is recommended by the author in a few brief important things.

It also offers plenty of resources to collect information on the status report using mobile apps as well as Internet access using handheld devices. However, for me personally, the most valuable information of the book is Constraints, mentioned in chapter 2. Value added by the idea of it stems from the encouragement of those who make the product (whether web or mobile) put yourself in situations to design for mobile first. By this way, you will have optimal (up to a maximum of) the most important functions, ways of organizing information, as well as the most affordable menu contents in accordance with the user's context.
