Format: Paperback
Well, regardless of the problem with everyone getting the French language version of the book, I read this book (in English) and I found it a bit lacking. In my opinion the biggest drawback of the book is the lack of more specific advice - call it technical advice, if you will - on supporting the how-to-get-it-done behind all the philosophy of the mobile-first approach to web experience design. In fact, it feels like a PhD dissertation on the state of the market in usability and mobile web experience, well researched and with plenty of images to drive the point home.

Thus, while the book has plenty to say (and thankfully keeps it all under the saner limits of 120 pages, instead of pounding on and on) and says it well, at the end, one gets a bit tired with all the supporting statistics that, ultimately, just underline what more or less everyone in the readership of this book should know, about how the mobile landscape is changing, the challenges, the experiences, and on and on.

However, for those of us whose main line of work might not be designing front-end UIs, who are not designers, but who need to keep a well-rounded profile (as any software architect should) this book falls short of leading the reader through some of the techniques, tips and tricks, etc. If this is what you need, just forget about this one and proceed to buy Ethan Marcotte's Responsive Web Design (make sure to get it in English, tho'), where things are well covered on the pragmatic side. Even if that book is not exactly about mobile first, it manages to cover it too and give useful advice.

Frustrated and irritated that I too have been sent the French version of this book despite the fact that there is no mention of the fact in the description. Clearly there is an English version because one lucky user has received and read it. I don't speak French so will be returning this useless item to Amazon and asking them to send me a version I can actually benefit from. However, the book does contain some very useful pictures which I'm ashamed to say I have already looked at ahead of returning the book.

A client explicitly asked me to read this book before a review meeting later this week, looks like that's not going to happen now!

In search results page list view you can't see its french version -- then you enter and click to buy it without reading [French], because you just want to click "buy" and get out of here... and you only find that you have bought the french version at time of unpacking it... to late... you will have to pay anyway.

My advice: if you buy it for mistake, put it to sell instead of returning to amazon, since you will have to pay the returning package.

I will NEVER BUY AMAZON another book!

Do not order this book unless you are fluent in French!!! Does not mention anywhere that it is not an English language book. Very annoying. Only giving one star as not possible to give zero stars.

As many others have pointed out this version is in French! Does not display that little tidbit of information in the search results. Total rip-off!
