5.0 out of 5 stars "snogtabulous", 23 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Introducing HTML 5 (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
Having seen both Bruce and Remy talk about their expert subjects - I had high expectations about this book, hoping to learn a lot from practical examples as well as hoping to be entertained. I was certainly not disappointed!

The book is excellent - I would recommend it to anyone interested in getting to grips with HTML5. A solid intro which gives great examples and explains in clear tone the pros and cons. Though it is called an introduction to HTML5 - I think it does go beyond that due to its practical approach throughout and the excellent examples and references. I enjoyed reading and experimenting along - while the text in the examples made me smile throughout.

I particularly liked the 'human' tone of this book, disagreeing in places with aspects of the spec being discussed, clearly pointing out cross-browser compatibility, practical working methods and overall delivering the content in a very pragmatic approach rather than focusing on theories and abstraction. The attention given to making sure that the new HTML5 gets implemented with accessibility in mind deserves an extra gold star!

The humour and fun really contributed to making this a brilliant read. You will enjoy it :)

If I had to find a flaw - I would have to agree with Chris Mills about the print quality. I'd have opted for a digital version - if there was one - had I known. I've read this book mainly at home, taking it with me for reading on the train only once - yet the cover now looks as if I've had it for months and treated it roughly... I treasure my books and so I'm not happy it looks so worn now.

But well done, Bruce and Remy, thanks for a great book!

There appear to be intermittent problems with the first printing of Introducing HTML5. If you have one of these copies, please email us at ask@peachpit.com with a copy of your receipt (from any reseller), and we'll either provide access to the eBook or send you another copy of the print book (est. to arrive the week of August 23)-- whichever you prefer. If you'd like the eBook we can add that to your Peachpit.com account. You can set up a free account at www.peachpit.com/join <http://www.peachpit.com/join>.
Thanks so much for your understanding!
