About the Author

Bass Jobsen

Bass Jobsen has been programming for the Web since 1995, from C to PHP, always looking for the most accessible interfaces. He has a special interest in the process between a designer and programmer. He believes that interfaces should work independent of a device or browser. For these reasons, working with grids and meta languages in designs makes him happy. He always looks forward to new opportunities in the Semantic and Responsive Web. He uses Less in his daily job for web design tasks and WordPress theme development as well as other Twitter Bootstrap apps. He is always happy to help you. He can be reached at http://stackoverflow.com/ users/1596547/bassjobsen. Currently, he writes a blog (http://bassjobsen.weblogs.fm/), programs LBS for mobile devices (http://www.gizzing.nl), makes cool websites (such as http://www.streetart.nl/), and counsels Jamedo Websites (http://www.jamedowebsite.nl/) in setting up the technical environment and requirements for their business. You can also check out his Bootstrap WordPress Starters Theme (JBST) and other projects at GitHub at https://github.com/bassjobsen. "I choose a lazy person to do a hard job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers all the main concepts of Less thoroughly with good examples 6 Jun. 2014
By Abdul Mueid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book introduces Less as an extension to CSS3 and dives into it's feature set extensively, providing examples for each feature. The book also covers Less as used in Bootstrap and Wordpress and helps getting slightly hands-on, although that is not the purpose of this book and it is not covered in-depth.

I should mention that this book is definitely not for learning about stylesheets from the ground up. A moderate know-how of CSS and a basic understanding of programming concepts (functions, variables, arrays, etc) is necessary in order to grasp many of the abstractions that Less provides.

Overall, the book has met my expectations. I am giving 4 stars because this book could definitely improve in terms of examples and adopt Bootstrap as the go-to real world project to manipulate and demonstrate the capabilities of Less.

2.0 out of 5 stars The book has some fantastic points and covers LESS well 24 May 2015
By Josh Archer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book has some fantastic points and covers LESS well. Unfortunately, they hired a very poor editor. Misspelled words (MS word could fix this for them?!?!), sloppy code with massive/obvious spacing and indentation errors, and poor wording drags the quality of the book down. This seems like a lazy money grab.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really my style, informative though. 28 May 2014
By Antonis Ntoumanis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I can code basic things on LESS and CSS. So I wanted to learn more especially integrating with bootstrap. While reading the book (kindle version) I found my self often confused because of some assumptions the writer made. That doesn't mean that it is a bad book. A lot of information is there, but what I want when I read something is some inspiration, something that this book didn't deliver. I think its more of writing style issue.
