Almost like a blog post
I have to say I was very surprised about how small the book was for $20. Most of the stuff came directly from Twitter Bootstraps examples. Not a lot of meat here folks.

Not Worth the Price
The book has nothing new about BootStrap. You can pretty much find all the information on BootStrap's website or online. There was nothing spectacular in the book! The real value can be $0.99.

Paid under 5 bucks for Kindle edition. It is a basic guide for beginners. The "Who this book is for" section:
This is sort of written like a corporate continuing education class or a for dummies/idiot's guide type book.
