3.0 out of 5 stars One for the "JavaScript ninjas", 23 Jan 2012
This review is from: Introducing HTML 5 (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
My intentions behind reading this book were, as it "says on the tin", to give me an introduction to HTML5. I've intentionally held off learning the new specification until I felt there was enough popular support for it. As such this book seemed like an ideal starting point. However, having read it from cover to cover I don't really feel much further forward.

Rather than teaching you how to code HTML5 this book covers some of the major features of the specification. It's a bit of a rollercoaster ride. Some topics are covered at a very high-level while others deep-dive into very specific examples. I am a fairly experienced front-end developer but felt out of my depth with some of the explanations and examples.

You definitely need a good grasp of JavaScript to get the most from this book. It says in the introduction "you don't need to be a JavaScript ninja" but I think it would certainly help. If this describes you then you may get more out this that I did.
