Syncfusion, one of the major software component vendors, recently started a series of free e-Books called the 'Succinctly' series. The premise is that established developers have enough background knowledge to rapidly pick up new information without having to wade through acres of basic or peripheral content. As they state, 'The essentials in about 100 pages'. Judging by the 'Succinctly' books I've read so far, this approach works well and they've recruited some great authors.

'ASP.NET MVC 4 Mobile Websites' by Lyle Luppes is a good example. It takes you through the reasons behind needing to address the mobile space and then dives straight into building an MVC mobile site with ample code examples and explanation where necessary. Even if you don't work with ASP.Net MVC it contains a lot of useful background on jQuery Mobile and cross-device design.

Two other books in the 'Succinctly' series that I'm looking at are 'JavaScript Succinctly' and 'jQuery Succinctly' both by Cody Lindley (a member of the jQuery team), both excellent.

As I writing this an email from Syncfusion came in about the latest edition to the series, 'Windows Store Apps Succinctly' by John Garland. Just about to download this one....

It's definitely worth taking a look at these books

I second that. The "ASP.NET MVC 4 Mobile Websites Succinctly" book was superb! I loaded it on my kindle fire and used all my spare time to read through it. It is actionable enough to get started hands on!
