After I started reading this book, I realized if I hadn’t received it as a review copy, I would still want to go out and buy it. This was one of the best books I’ve read at introducing many of the new options available in web construction, from HTML5, through CSS3, all the way to Javascript and APIs and how to use the basics.

One of the things I like about this book is the format, it is very easy to follow and after each chapter this is a section entitled "Further Reading" which is good because you can find more information from reading other books on the subject. That is, if you think you need other books, since this book is written by a guru of web development. Full Review  >
