5.0 out of 5 stars Evocative music, 1 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Drawing Breath (Audio CD)
An outstanding and creative fusion album. The music is evocative and atmospheric with many dynamic changes and stylistic influences (e.g. funk, rock, jazz). The songs are groovy, dense, full of ideas and beautifully arranged. Fantastic musicianship all around and a good production too. Great record.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction, let down by poor print quality, 7 Aug 2010
This book is a good introduction for experienced web developers to the main new concepts in HTML5. The authors pick some of the key concepts and provide plenty of practical examples how these can be applied in web applications. The book does not aim to be a complete reference of HTML5 but provides references to additional resources. I found the book very useful to get up to speed with HTML5.

Unfortunately the book is a let down by a pretty poor print quality. Many of the code examples and headings are blurry and hard to read, there are some typos and after a few days of use the glossy finish of the cover comes off. One can't help it but think that the publication was rushed and that being first to market was more important than quality control which is a shame. The contents of the book would have deserved better.
