The bad is that it really just scratches the surface about responsive design. Most of the book was spent discussing content and usability and very very minimally, discussed actual responsiveness. Peterson could've covered so much more about responsive design. You run into so many issues with responsiveness and I was hoping for a book to really deep dive into the code.
If you're looking for a good start into responsive, this book is good. It will get you started.
If you really want to grapple responsiveness well and all its nuances, I'd look elsewhere.
I would've given it 2 stars for the topic, except that I enjoyed Peterson's discussion on usability.
I found the book to be very well written & edited, with illustrations at key points demonstrating what was being described. This is better than most books in my experience.
There are many facets to making a web site "responsive" to the device viewing it. This book covers them all in a convincing way. From the media queries that embed decisions about when to size the web page in 1, 2, 3 or more columns (or the width of those columns), to the typography & content that might be more appropriate to one versus another device characteristic.
I would not only buy the book again in a heartbeat, but I'd buy other books by this author because of her clear & comprehensive writing style.
