The first edition was a great introduction to HTML5, it kept things simple and clear. It wasn't an exhaustive reference, but enough to introduce you to the concepts, so that you could gain enough understanding for further study if you needed it. This kept the book pleasingly thin.
This second edition follows in the footsteps of the first, still nice and thin, but now expanded to cover some additional HTML5 features, and adding more detail to some of the previous ones.
If you want a great intriduction to HTML5, that's clear and precise, and that gives you a good grounding for further study, this is the book to get.
