Insites: The Book is a beautiful, limited edition, 256-page book presented in a numbered, foil-blocked presentation box. This very special publication features no code snippets and no design tips; instead, 20 deeply personal conversations with the biggest names in the web community.
Over the course of six months, we travelled the US and the UK to meet with Tina Roth Eisenberg, Jason Santa Maria, Cameron Moll, Ethan Marcotte, Alex Hunter, Brendan Dawes, Simon Collison, Dan Rubin, Andy McLoughlin, Kevin Rose and Daniel Burka, Josh Brewer, Ron Richards, Trent Walton, Ian Coyle, Mandy Brown, Sarah Parmenter, Jim Coudal, Jeffrey Zeldman, Tim Van Damme, and Jon Hicks.
We delved into their personal journeys, big wins, and lessons learned, along with the kind of tales you’ll never hear on a conference stage. Each and every person we spoke to has an amazing story to tell — a story we can all relate to, because even the biggest successes have the smallest, most humble of beginnings.
Insites: The Book is published by Viewport Industries in association with MailChimp.
Insites: The Book is a rather special collector’s item: the foil-blocked outer box opens up to reveal our little black book, blind-embossed with the Insites logomark.
And inside the book itself, you’ll find 256 pages (of silk-coated 140gsm stock) packed full of the secrets of our industry’s very best designers, developers, and entrepreneurs.

“This book is like having coffee and catching up with an old friend — an intimate reunion of genuine conversation and up-close anecdotes. OK, minus the coffee.”
