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.
Ali Julia review
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.
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.
