Format: Paperback
I ordered this book directly from SitePoint as they had a sale going on. They were offering this book for $9. The books was shipped by O'Reilly from United States. I have just started reading the book and noticed that the print was poor quality. Felt like someone had photocopied the original book. The print is in black and white rather than the color images that you see on 'Look inside' from Amazon. I have ordered two more books with this and I have a feeling even they are going to be poor quality. I paid $30 for shipment. In the end I feel short changed and the book is not even worth $9.

If I were the authors I'd be looking for a new publisher. They must surely feel let down by the extremely poor print quality and atrocious reproduction of the screen shots used in the publication of their work. Grainy black and white images that are supposed to demonstrate differences in screen resolution are absurd. If this is how Sitepoint books are generally printed, then I will avoid all of their books in future.

There's useful information in here, though, so it's not a complete waste of money.

Not good. 17 Jun. 2013
By D. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I struggled through the first 3 chapters and then quit. Poor explanations, poor examples.
Picked up "Implementing Responsive Design" by Kadlec and it was great by comparison.

Many good tips 14 Aug. 2013
By Virginia DeBolt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jump Start Responsive Web Design by Craig Sharkie and Andrew Fisher is from SitePoint (2013). I found this book uneven in usefulness, so I'm only giving it 3 stars, although it did have some very valuable tips.

The first part of the book talks in general about responsive design. Then it goes into fluid grids. The explanation of the mathematical underpinnings of grids and font-size decisions in this section were clear. However, some parts of this discussion made almost no sense to me because the reader is expected to download files and be at a computer while reading. The code examples printed in the text are not adequate for someone like me who was reading an electronic version of the book to follow the discussion. There were references to things unseen and comments you couldn't follow unless you were working in the downloaded code.

The adaptive images chapter gave us several alternate ideas for working with images. There was no definitive best practice set forth in this section because we really don't have a definite answer yet, or even a final choice as to the HTML elements that will format responsive images.

In the section on understanding media queries there was excellent detail and advice. I was impressed with some of the solutions the authors pointed to dealing with the constantly changing number of potential breakpoints in responsive designs.

The chapter I found most fascinating was the one on responsive content. Discussion focused on ways to structure content with metadata and supporting structure that allow for the reuse of chunks of content in various ways. This is part of the overall concept of responsive design that seldom gets mentioned. The book is worth reading for this chapter alone.

The final chapter looked at various boilerplate solutions and how they can be adapted to your individual needs.
