I have a lot of books on programming as I do a lot of it from my bed being impaired. This is average for what it is and is a good well laid booklet.

HTML 5 yup a waste of time at the moment. I think you may want to look at CCS3 and even thats still in development. Maybe come back in 10 years :)

HASH(0x8e08d888) out of 5 stars Good intro: Good examples, clear explanation 15 Dec. 2011
By Ali Julia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
HTML5 for Publishers is a tutorial aimed at publishers who want to expand their ebooks beyond traditional text-and-graphics. This ebook addresses how to add Canvas, Geolocation, and Audio/Video.

It starts with a brief tutorial on HTML and JavaScript and then move to specific examples that put HTML5 in action.

(1) The specific demos include a graphic calculator that uses Canvas.
(2) Finger painting application for drawing pictures on a page
(3) Demp of how an ebook can be customized with the reader's current location
(4) An audio-enabled glossary that lets you hear each term
(5) Embedded video along with instructional text to supplement the video

You get the actual code for the example from a web download specified in the book along with the explanations. The explanations are clear, the examples are complete, the author allows portions of the code to be re-used without asking for permission.

I liked the author also states the compatibility with major EPUB reader platforms for each feature.

This is an excellent tutorial, it exceed my expectations in both clarity and completeness.

HASH(0x8e08dad4) out of 5 stars Good start but not for serious coders 26 Dec. 2011
By Ali Muzaffar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book provides enough information for smart people to get up and running. However it was extremely simple and doesn't even scratch the surface of publishing with html5. The information is not enough to do any serious production ready work. The learning curve that you will have trying to look up resources online will not be any flatter because of this book.

There are good code examples however these are extremely basic and all the resources point to other content that will presumably teach you for real (for a price). Presumably this book is free simply to point you towards paid resources by the same publisher.

HASH(0x8e08da98) out of 5 stars Good information & examples but not very broad or in-depth 7 May 2013
By Lantana Al - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm the developer of an HTML & CSS checking tool for Windows so I've had more than my 'fair share' learning HTML and CSS, but I was not as familiar with eBook publishing, MathML, and SVG.

I can say that I enjoyed reading this book and think I learned a good amount of information from it even though it's not that lengthy, in-depth, or broad. I'd say it's an 'intermediate' level book. It's not for beginners because it assumes one already knows a bit about HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. More advanced or experienced programmers could also learn from this book if they are not familiar with the presented topics.

As some other reviews may mention, it doesn't cover a great deal and doesn't go into deep detail, but I still found it interesting and informative. The examples certainly did their job in explaining and clarifying certain aspects of things like canvas, geolocation, and MathML, and SVG. Also, the book gives some good references that one can use to further investigate topics and go deeper into the details.

If I had paid $20+ for it, then I could understand the lower ratings, but for the current price of $0, I really can't find anything to complain about, so I'm giving this book 5 stars. I certainly got more than my money's worth out of it.

Excellent, as are all the O'Reilly books I've come across. I have been after an HTML5 book that specifically addresses publishing, so I am delighted to have found this one.

If you are interested in a book that teach by example, this is one for you. The book brings a lot of good examples that turn the learning process really easier.
