5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for... March 5 2013
By Magus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've so many HTML5/CSS3 'textbooks' that present a 'classroom' take on teaching but what I really needed, now, was a quick-reference books so that I wouldn't have to wade through a dozen books, chapter by chapter, to find what I was looking for - and this book fills that need perfectly.

It's a bit expensive for what it is, but worth every penny. I highly recommend it to designers who, like myself, are making the transition from print to web. Yes, you can go through thousands of pages at [...] to find what you're looking for, but Sergey has it all summed up for you in one modest volume.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good reference Sept. 19 2012
By David Carrus - Published on Amazon.com
I read this (e-)book during summer. I must admit I had no expectations. Instead it revealed itself as a good surprise.

It doesn't go all the way, diving into extra-complicated stuff, instead provides a good reference. Many(Most) things are explained witht ables and graphics, and i found myself re-checking it when i had some doubt .

I give it 4 stars not 5 because the pdf version i have, has no index. Don't know if this is a problem related to my early version.
This is a little disappointing, given the main purpose of the book to be a reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent HTML5 Reference April 10 2012
By Barbara E Rose - Published on Amazon.com
May be the best HTML5 reference I have ever seen.

Designed for experienced webdesigner, but I would highly recommend it to beginners
as a supplement to a HTML5 for Beginners book.

The layout and presentation is the best I have ever seen in 32 years of programming!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick reference or long cheat sheet July 5 2012
By Mickel - Published on Amazon.com
This book could be identified as a quick reference, or you could call it a long cheat sheet. And I need exactly that: a comprehensive cheat sheet with illustrations: HTML/CSS is not a super complex topic, and I can get by using a nice cheat sheet. Giant reference books always intimidate to me, but this book delivers just the right balance of information.

The data is condensed and straight to the point. No comicality and not too much philosophical commentary, just raw data: syntax, elements, attributes, values, events, and plenty of sample code. The book also provides key concepts and definitions. Syntax is obviously based on the W3C documentation, but streamlined a bit. The book also provides very useful browser compatibility tables.

We own the initial edition book, and now we also purchased a bunch of the second edition copies, so I can relate. The first edition was pretty good, and this one is even more refined: more color pictures and more HTML5 APIs offered. The browser compatibility info is expanded to individual tags, CSS3 and APIs.
