This book is well written and does a good job with what it is trying to do. This book brings up many of the new features that are added with HTML5 and gives enough details to get the reader started playing with the features. In some areas there is quite a lot of detail, but the reader will want to use examples and details on the web to augment the book when programming. Full Review  >
