5.0 out of 5 stars excelent book
This book is a concise, carefully written tutorial on the basics of HTML5. As the book says, it's not an introduction, but it helps beginners to get familiar with this complex subject. After reading this book you'll soon be building web pages that feel and act like desktop programs. It provides all the information you need. Excelent book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good information spoiled by writing style
This book is good and the information is useful - it helps to learn the basics quickly. Explanations of HTML5 syntax are usually detailed enough and it doesn't waste too much time on the basics.
However I can't give it 5 stars because of two reasons:
- in some cases a few of the CSS properties are mentioned in detail and then the book says "the rest can be...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 10 Nov 2011
This review is from: HTML5 for Masterminds, Revised 2nd Edition (Kindle Edition)
This is "THE" HTML5 book, no doubt about it. The first chapters introduce you to the HTML5 elements, CSS and Javascript, and after that you are able to understand complex subjects and the Javascript APIs presented in the rest of the book. Highly recommendable.

This review is from: HTML5 for Masterminds, Revised 2nd Edition (Kindle Edition)
For anyone looking to get their heads around html5 this is the perfect starting point. It does go through some very trivial stuff that cost it a star on my review but other than that, its a perfect reference book to have in your library

5.0 out of 5 stars For beginners and developers, 7 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple and still well explained examples on how to use the new features of HTML5 - As a front end developer it was easy to understand and build on the examples provided in the book - and as always when it comes to programming: It wasnt so difficult after seing some working examples...Which of course is credit to the author, and the book - I can recommend it, even if your are not an expert into javascript, as the features of HTML5 are straightforward explained. This book can push you the extra you need to dramatically improve your front end skills in ease!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good book about HTML5 new features. Almost all topics of HTML5 are explained, well written but pehraps some chapters on advanced technologies could be a bit more extended and step up, with schemes and code examples or other things.
Nevertheless a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books for html5, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is for those who want to "master" html5. It is excellent for beginners as it guides the reader through examples and analyzes in a practical way all html5 apis. Javascript code is neat and fully functional. Also if you are intermediate in web development this book is a great reference guide to html5. I would definitely recommend this book

This review is from: HTML5 for Masterminds, Revised 2nd Edition (Kindle Edition)
Brilliant! I am returning to developing after being out of the industry for 5.5 years. As a VS developer I was never hot on CSS. VS 2013 requires than you have knowledge and skills in HTML5 and CSS3. This was a daunting prospect, and something I was not looking forward to. But this book delivered exactly the information I was looking in a nutshell kind of way with good examples and explanations. The fear of HTML5 and CSS3 is now gone, and I am making good use of the new bells and whistles these technologies bring to the development world. Fab book for all skill levels in my opinion, and as a reference book as well. Oh and the Kindle version was less than a fiver making it even better value.
