HTML5 is not just a replacement for plugins. It also makes the Web a first-class development environment by giving JavaScript programmers a solid foundation for building industrial-strength applications. This practical guide takes you beyond simple site creation and shows you how to build self-contained HTML5 applications that can run on mobile devices and compete with desktop apps.

Quién espere encontrar el manual definitivo sobre la creación de aplicaciones web usando HTML5 no encontrará lo que busca, el que piense que por ser una introducción será lo suficientemente básico para el usuario novato tampoco. Es un libro para saber como hay que arrancar pero teniendo un conocimiento previo sobre el tema. Si uno no tiene una necesidad imperiosa de introducirse en el desarrollo de aplicaciones web html5 lo mejor que puede hacer es darle unos meses y conseguirse las ediciones posteriores, y los que quieren aprender pueden afilarse los dientes con algunos otros libros de la editorial.

The book has good coverage of the programming features in HTML5 like Local Storage, IndexedDB, Files, Offline Applications, Web Workers, and Web Sockets. It even has a primer on JavaScript and JavaScript Tools as well as quick coverage of the new HTML5 Tags. Unfortunately, there are just better books that discuss the same topics in my humble opinion.
