Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
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.
Answers any question one could possibly have regarding HTML5 & CSS3 - nesting, browser support, etc.
Plain and simple layout makes finding the needed info fast and easy.
This book will DEFINITELY be in my go-to pile.
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!
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.
