    Pros: 

    Such great content

    Cons: 

    Is more content possible?

    I've just started going through this material and it's an amazing resource that I'll be using daily. Can't wait to make it all the way through the book and videos.

    Pros: 

    A no-brainer for web professionals

    Cons: 

    Why didn't I think of this? 😜

    Everyone who works on the web should understand design: software developers, product managers, etc...

    This is the best resource I've found on the topic.

Big day for product people who wants to learn design, Refactoring UI is out 🎉 As a designer, I can say the content is gorgeous, full of great tips. Lot of knowledge and tricks designers are learning over the years by doing, you can jump start your knowledge right now! Congrats to @steveschoger & @adamwathan for their awesome work and the new opportunities they're providing 👏🏻

Definitely pricier than I thought it'd be and I'd love to see that cost subsidize access to those who couldn't otherwise afford it but it was still an easy decision to buy based on all of the content I've seen leading up to this release. edit It'd also be great to see this in at least an iBooks format in addition to just PDF, especially for the price.

I've been waiting for this for a long time. Your Twitter threads have been a huge help. The past few years I've transitioned more into a developer role and my design got rusty. Being tasked with designing things for startups has been a stressful experience because my expectations were always higher than my output, and I've ended up unhappy or stuck with my work. I'm sure this book and resources will help overcome these issues and make me a better designer. Glad this is finally out! 🙌️

great work! would love to see the component gallery as a website (images of the components would be enough), to quickly open it and discuss possibilities with students, designers or even clients (e. g. application layouts). or in other words: I hate PDF.

@steveschoger I’d get the book if it was available in any other format than PDF. Can’t stand long form reads on screen, unless it’s a properly formatted eBook (ePub, mobi, iBooks). Also, why no print version? The medium IS crucial here.
