This book is so easy to follow, very concise, and highly recommended. I implore all designers who are unsure of whether to take the step to learn Sass to go for it. You won't be disappointed. Sass will literally cut hours off your CSS coding. Variables and mixins are the way forward!

Having put off Sass for a while I decided this was the book that would get me started, judging from how much I learned from the authors previous book. The author's relaxed and friendly writing style leads to an enjoyable reading experience rather than the chore that other books can be to get through. This book guides you through Sass and Compass from start to finish, and allows you to go as deep as you want into the language. Even if you just use one or two aspects from the book such as variables and colours you'll save a bunch of time when front end developing. This book is great for both learning and for future reference.

Very easy to understand book and a good intro to Sass/Compass and the command line. I did need to look up a few extra command line bits as I'd never used it before, but its a good stepping stone to get you started. Before you buy, understand that it is printed in greyscale so in some instances having the e-book could be better because I think that is in colour and it would make more sense when the author refers to colour sass combos in screenshots.
Only halfway through reading it - but so far so good. Looking forward to the responsive grid aspects!
Really pleased I brought it.

My background is that I knew HTML and CSS, but had never heard of SASS, Ruby or the like before I started reading this book. One of the best computer books I've read. We're a computer training company, and I recognise a kindred spirit - the author explains everything clearly and without assumptions. Thoroughly recommended (I'm on page 49 so far).
