I am giving one star not for lack of quality but rather that the book is outdated.

Don’t think you can use this book to learn version 3 because you can’t. Version 3 is vastly different than version 2, and better. Watch the videos on Balsamiq’s website.

Also, forget about the one Lynda course based on version 2. Unless Balsaimq is willing to produce a video expressly for version 3, forget it. Version 3 makes version 2 almost unrecognizable. Oh, I just found out that Udemy.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I bought this ebook for its examples, which requires downloads. Inside the book there is giude of a link to download files: One person found this helpful. The book does not cover the latest version, Balsamiq Mockups 3. It only covers the previous version, so much of it is not current regarding interface and menus. Also, new features are not included. There is no mention of this in the book description here on Amazon and I was quite annoyed to receive this book only to discover this after purchasing.

Also it does not contain pages as stated above. It is a bit thin, at pages, including the index at the back. Having stated these negatives I will say that the book is well written and still helpful, although not covering the new features of Mockups 3 makes it less than ideal. If I were learning Mockups 2 it would be fine. I personally like to have a reference manual for applications I am learning so that I can refer to it from time to time and I will get a bit of use out of it but frankly, there’s nothing here that couldn’t be found in Balsamiq’s excellent Tutorial sections on their site.


As a vuide developer I’ve tried to use Visio a part of Microsoft Office to draw my concepts – the screens and flow of the software – but this did not work for me. Balsamiq Mockups is a leading user interface mocking quickstarh It allows you to create mockups of your product – Simplified-by-intention drawings and flow simulation.

It is not a general purpose drawing tool like Visio, but is instead a tool dedicated to sketching software user interface. Even though it appears less capable than Visio, it has a “rightness” to its sketches which I could not find in Visio.

I bought Balsamiq and tried using it a few times in the past. I felt, however, that I failed to grasp how to work with it efficiently. Though the product appears simple, something just did not work.

This book, a very easy read, made me understand how to work with the this mocking tool. Once the book is read the product appears simple, so it’s paradoxical. However, I do remember I failed on my own, so I have to recommend the book: Background about myself to get perspective: I’m moving from a primarily developer role to a more UIUX role and I’m already comfortable with Photoshop although that really has no bearing on Balsamiq ramp up or this book.

I needed to get up to speed quicstart this software quickly. I saw qickstart positive reviews and that Balsamiq folks themselves recommend the book so I went ahead and got the ebook version. I’ve plodded through the example in the book over one afternoon and can say I’m now fairly confident I know what Balsamiq has to offer and how to use the tool. Any more I can get from the site’s help guides, tuts, etc. This book was a perfect fast study resource do you really want to spend that much time to learn a tool like this?

That said, it’s super useful in the UX toolkit. I really appreciated how well the quicjstart files wirefrqmes laid out and how clear his writing was.
