Mobile Web Design, the book: Available August 28
~ 14 August 2007 ~
This is the book I was desperately seeking two years ago when I began researching the mobile web.
This is the book that, contrary to most mobile web books/resources already published, contains more than 40 full-color screens from several mobile devices (including iPhone).
This is the book whose utility I’ve been able to validate along the way, answering questions by email and in person by literally copying and pasting or by pulling up the latest draft of the book on the spot.
This is the book that includes what I feel is only the most important and relevant information — roughly one-third the length of most tech books, but I believe every bit as thorough and helpful as lengthier volumes. In fact, a number of pages were deliberately removed prior to completion because I felt they simply didn’t make the cut.
This is the book for which I don’t think I could be more pleased with the outcome (woohoo!).
And this is the book that you can own on August 28, available for immediate purchase in PDF format beginning that day.
You’ll be entered to win an iPhone 8GB (among other gifts) if you’re one of the first buyers, but of course you’re savvy enough to recognize the real value is in the text, not the giveaways. But hey, giveaways make it all that more enjoyable, do they not?
See you in a couple weeks.
