Fair introduction Sept. 7 2009
By Jozef Kutej - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is quite short - 102 A5 pages. It doesn't go into too much technical details. In my point of view it will be a good introduction chapter for a book about mobile web design. May be that the target audience is not developers but non-technical people, that will run away when faced bigger one.

There are a lot of links and web references. On one hand it's good, as one can go and investigate further, but book assumes that reader goes and really checks the pages. I buy "physical" books to read them while I'm travelling or when I'm somewhere off-line. Scratching the topic and then referring to a blog just keeps me upset because I can not check it right away. So I had to "re-read" the book, extract all the links that were interesting and check them out later.

Great book on mobile web design, doesn't cover advanced topics though... Feb. 24 2009
By M. Brandon Eley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent beginner's guide to mobile development. While it doesn't cover advanced topics such as redirecting users to a mobile website, serving video, or JavaScript for advanced devices, it has an excellent introduction to mobile web design. It covers WAP, XHTML and CSS and the development process, how to test on different mobile devices, and even how to promote your mobile website.

If you're an experienced web designer and are interested in developing for mobile, I'd definitely recommend this book.

Nice compilation of material now available on the web July 25 2010
By milo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a nice little snapshot of the mobile world. But so much has happened in the time since this book was originally published that it is out of date. Also - you can find 90% of this book published word for word on the web.

Save your money unless a new edition is published.

Dated Nov. 26 2010
By Multimedia Professor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book may have been worth the price when it was originally published, but at this point most of the info is out of date, or can be found on the web for free.
Needs an update.

Good for beginners in mobile web design Dec 27 2009
By Martin Hassman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you know nothing about the mobile web, this book is good introduction for you.

It is very tiny book, doesn't go too deep, rather cover the basics and offer links to other resources.

After reading of this book you wouldn't be able just go and make perfect mobile web design, but you will be ready to make your first experiments and avoid common mistakes.
