Our pride and joy has finally arrived: the brand-new Smashing Book #41. After months of hard work, we are incredibly excited to present to you the project that has kept us busy for so long, and has grown very dear to our hearts:

The long-awaited Smashing Book #4 is now finally available in your personal eBook Library.2

available in your personal eBook Library.

The eBook version is already waiting in your (you guessed it!) very own Library dashboard4 in PDF, ePUB and Amazon Kindle formats. With its 13 jam-packed chapters, 498 pages, lots of practical takeaways, and topics ranging from front-end development to psychology, it will challenge you to look beyond what’s usually done in Web design. Well, if that’s not a great way to celebrate an anniversary, what is?

To provide you with even more in-depth reading material, we are already working with a stellar lineup of authors on books that will be specially tailored for the Smashing Library. Paul Boag, Peter-Paul Koch, Rian van der Merwe and Daniel Pataki are already busy writing! Besides, you’ll soon find even more conference videos coming up as well. Doesn’t it all just sound smashing? ;)

That’s already it for today. We know you can hardly wait to flip through your lovely, new Smashing Book #45 and we don’t want to keep you any longer from doing so.
