"A little more indepth than the online docs" - by cscortes on 18-MAY-2014

Believe it or not, some of the examples are already outdated and don't work.  I think that is really more a credit to the quick evolution of bootstrap than a mark on the author.  
Still, I would like to see the next edition of this book as bootstrap becomes more mature and major changes are less frequent.
What engages me about this book is that it take just that half-step you need to bring the ideas together and doesn't go overboard -- this is a good starter book.

"A few revisions..." - by Justica on 23-APR-2014

So what is it that a IT textbook really should offer users in a world were the product website is most likely informative as well? Well I judge based on three things: quality of textbook definitions, instructional design and overall perspective offered by the author.

Unfortunately this book has very low quality definitions related to Bootstrap and even less of an overall perspective on the technology is offered. Instructional design is very minimal, the product website is better. Frankly, I want a refund or at least the option to delete it from my shelf early.

I found better everything on the Bootstrap website. What it will take to update this book is a better overall perspective on how the Bootstrap language overlaps with other CS languages, more in-depth examples, and better definitions.

Out of date and provides nothing more than reading the Bootstrap Docs. Do not waste your money.

"A brief introduction to Bootstrap" - by iMadalin on 01-DEC-2013

Even if you started with Bootstrap (version 2 when I read the book), it's a good way to check out most of the stuff you can use from the author's side of views. I found a few things I wasn't aware of and helped me in some projects.

Two stars for the engaging writing style,  but there's not much else to recommend about this book. It's out of date, and on more than one occasion I found myself reading an example over and over only to realize that the example wasn't illustrating the same point as the text.

The website is probably a better resource.
