Easy to read and enjoyable book on the history, standards and good practices of the mobile web development. This book walks us through the evolution of the mobile web standards and vendor specific practices and vividly illustrates the complexity and the mess we now face with the mobile websites creation.
While it is easy to read, the book contains extremely detailed sections which can be omitted on first reading and later used as reference only.
Programming for the mobile web is a great tool which should be used by any developer tasked with the implementation of a mobile web site.
P.S. make sure you pick up the latest edition. With the current pace of the technology evolution the content of this book gets out of date pretty quickly.
