The inner section illustration for the "Responsive Design Patterns" chapter.
In this chapter, we'll look into clever practical techniques for improving UX of responsive sites, e.g. designing "responsive modules" such as mega-drop downs, tables, calendars, accordions, maps, sliders, PDF and iconography — and a dash of anti-patterns to avoid as well.
The book isn't concerned with trends or short-lived workarounds. It's focused on actual techniques used today in real-life projects. Think of it as a reliable playbook to master all the tricky facets and hurdles of responsive design.

"Smashing Book #5 has completely changed the potential for books around the web. This thing is ridiculous in how it dives deep into a topic and continues to dive deeper until you feel as though your brain might explode from the knowledge.
Smashing Book #5 is now your RWD bible. Stop searching, buy this book, and spend a weekend filling your brain with the most useful, technical information on RWD you can find anywhere.
And that's what is most impressive to me about this book. It's no different than sitting in a work environment with these authors and seeing how they get the job done. When you are trying to get into this field you are often left on your own to figure things out."
