      This is a very broad overview, leaving out many details. Also, disappointed to find exact text is widely available for free online.


      Not for designers

      Comments about oreilly Responsive Theming for Drupal:

      I do not recomend this book, as theming it is related to design, this book seems to be writed only for hard coders an it is imposible to follow for a designer point of code. Get lost into seting up the enviroment, it takes for granted that every one knows how to install everything.
