The first chapters were a little boring since the purpose was to set you on the app mentality, which someone that is willing to buy the book should already be. There some good information, specially details that can speed up your learning curve but nothing mind blowing.

I am not 100% sure who this is aimed at, but if you are looking to read along and build your first app.. this is probably not for you.

good concepts and gives you a clear idea of the bigger picture.

Format: Paperback
One of the factors facing anyone who wants to develop a web site or a mobile web application today is that the world of server-side scripting for functionality is (has?) giving way to much more dynamic applications with the client doing most of the heavy lifting. JavaScript has moved beyond being a little bit of glue code or a few dispersed libraries that added some special effects or eye candy to a site. Now, applications are being developed and generated by JavaScript libraries and frameworks to the point where static HTML may be slim to nonexistent.

The goal today is less a matter of control via the server and being open to creating applications that are performant, scalable, and utilize the latest Web infrastructure and application features. We are reaching a point where, for many, the mobile web is the way that they interact with the Internet (lugging around a laptop like me for much of the day is starting to look a bit old school ;) ).

"HTML5 and JavaScript Web Apps" by Wesley Hales is a survey of the emerging and solidifying standards that are defining the landscape of what web and mobile apps will look like in the near future. Yes, the emphasis here is mobile, though there are also several sections devoted to traditional web sites and applications. This books is, as I mentioned, a "survey"; it does not go in depth on any of the technologies. What it does provide is a lot of examples and ideas to spur thought, and an invitation to go and explore what's out there.

If you are a new web developer, or have not already spent significant time playing with front end development practices, this is not going to get you there. That's OK, though, it's not meant to.
