Responsive Design provides the theory and practical instruction on how to automatically adjust a user interface depending on device type (computer, smart phone or tablet) and device orientation (portrait or landscape). 

This book explains why we do the things that we do in Fluid. 
Peoplebooks is a great resource but sometimes there is too much of information to grasp and end result is more confusion. Unlike the available documentation, which does not explain the reasoning behind - after reading this book will learn why we do the things that we do in Fluid. It goes even deeper into some concepts covered in PeopleSoft Fluid. 
Controller Class, Viewports, CSS Concepts...
You will learn Controller Class concept coding in terms of the Model View Controller pattern, and this book will provide a Controller template to use in all Fluid app projects. 
Viewports, Visual and Advanced CSS...
Responsive Design then discusses viewports, visual and layout viewports, and the techniques needed to provide a consistent experience across any device. Advanced CSS concepts are discussed, and how to use CSS selectors within a Fluid App to add style to the UI. 
All the concepts laid out properly...

 The book then puts all of these concepts together as it uses a modular-designed application to explain the techniques of responding to device characteristics. It explains how to define breakpoints, and how to make your application respond to these breakpoints. Specifically, the book uses three techniques to achieve a responsive application: Form Factor Overrides,  PeopleCode, and Media Queries.
Using techniques to create applications for tomorrow!
 Finally, the book offers advice on when to use these different techniques to provide applications that respond properly to the the devices and environment they are used from.

A Word From The Author

My first book was PeopleSoft Fluid, which provided introductory instructions on developing PeopleSoft Fluid applications.
Hundreds of postitive comments received motivated me to write the advanced version  - Responsive Design.
While PeopleSoft Fluid provides introductory instructions for developing Fluid applications, Responsive Design provides Advanced instructions on how to make these applications perform consistently across any device type in an organization.
