A good bridge for those who know HTML 4 already March 21 2012
By Dafydd Crosby - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this to be a pretty good introduction into HTML 5. Coming from an HTML 4 background, what I wanted to see was the practical benefits of 5, not just the flashy new Canvas functionality. This book delivered that, pointing out aspects of HTML 5 that I was unaware of, such as the application cache. Done in a step-by-step manner, it was easy to see the necessary thought process to get the goods.

The content was very helpful except the examples were far to small in print to read easily.
The book cover was curled back when I opened the packaging and continue to curl back with time.
There was no errata available and I discovered an error.

I found the content regarding HTML5 to be very helpful.
My problem was with the extremely small print used for the markup examples.
Terrible Textboook! Feb. 18 2013
By Robert J. Eckrich - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am taking a non-credit course on HTML5 at a community college. The instructor made this book a required text for the course. IT'S TERRIBLE. On the cover, the book indicates that there is a companion website that contains the examples of the code used in the book. It is nowhere to be found in the book! I had to bug the instructor to give us the URL (BTW, the URL is html5, and it won't work in IE9, only FireFox and Chrome)

I've worked as an editor in the past and I can tell that the author went back and forth editing pages and code in the book, without checking to see whether he was being accurate and/or consistent in his writing. He isn't, and the editors didn't catch any of the mistakes. He includes discussion about writing CSS and using certain new tags in early chapters, but that he doesn't discuss until much later in the book. When providing steps for guides on how to write code, the instructions and notes don't match up to the screen capture examples he is displaying.

If you're a teacher looking for a new textbook on HTML5 or are looking for a guide to teach yorself HTML5, I suggest looking elsewhere.
