The book starts with an introduction to the Responsive Web Design concepts and techniques. Then, it explains how to set up a local WordPress environment and also helps you understand the structure of the WordPress theme. Finally, we learn to create responsive comments in WordPress and also have a look at static pages and index templates.

Great book!
"WordPress Responsive Theme Design" was a great book, when i finished to read it, i was capable to start my own Wordpress Template. The book is so useful and recommended. Through the book, i learned about the Wordpress theme developer, how to use the template functions for building themes, also i learned about the principles of theme developer for Wordpress, best practices and responsive design.
I purchased a digital copy. Overall, I was disappointed with this book and would not recommend it. Several parts were poorly written and poorly organized and prepared. Before even the first chapter, in the "Downloading the color images of this book" section, the wrong link is provided, which sends the reader to a PDF file of screenshots that have nothing to do with the book. It looks like it's for a different book. The author says he provided the logo image in the source files, but it IS NOT included (none of the image files were provided). Ordinarily, I overlook typos, but this book has more typos than any consumer would consider normal or acceptable. Some of the typos were serious enough to lead to confusion, for example, referring to a file with the wrong extension. Also, some of the screenshots in the book don't match the current state of project, which is confusing. Fortunately for me, I've had some prior experience with WordPress, so I was able to catch most of the errors or know what the code was doing, despite the author's unclear explanations, but I'd say someone with less experience would definitely have a good amount of frustration at various sections of this book. Personally, the only saving grace is that I bought this book at a discounted price, and I did learn a few new things. However, if I had purchased a hard copy, I'd be upset Packt for publishing this book in such a poor state.
