4.0 out of 5 stars Responsive Web Design with HTML5 and CSS3, 18 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Responsive Web Design with Html5 and Css3 (Paperback)
I bought this book when it first came out. It is easy reading and well laid out, I would have preferred it if it was in colour as well as they do not supply any supporting files that you can download to actually see the look that they are describing.

Saying that, it does not detract from the details that are contained in the book and it is very easy to follow, but I would not recommend this book to a beginner to HTML and CSS as it may be confusing, as this book is not meant to teach beginners on how to use standard HTML and CSS scripting.

The only reason why I have given it a 4* rating and not a 5* is that it would be far better if the images were in colour.

Hi John, thanks for taking the time to review my book, it's appreciated! Just to let you know that the e-book (not sure about Kindle but I presume so) is in full colour. I do think it's a shame the printed one isn't too but afraid that's the way it is.
Also, thanks to feedback from yourself and others I have produced zip files containing the code for each Chapter. It's available on my site (can't link but just Google my name) and is also being added to Packt's site too. Hope that helps!

Cheers - Ben (author)

Hi Ben,

Thank you for a quick response. I have now downloaded the zip files from the Packt website, this is very useful as it demonstrates clearer designs than what you can only show in a book.

Thanks again for an excellent book, it has changed my way of designing.

Regards

Hi Ben,

Were you able to ever confirm whether the Kindle edition is in colour? I typically prefer physical books to ebooks but would buy the Kindle version if it's in full colour, especially considering it's significantly cheaper.

Regards

Hi TechBajan, I would expect the Kindle one to be colour as the standard ebook ones are but I don't know for sure. I'll check with the publishers and report back.

Just spoke to the publishers and as far as they are away, the Kindle version should be colour (providing your Kindle is colour obviously)
