Not what it says on the tin,
This review is from: Robin Nixon's HTML5 Crash Course: 1 (Paperback)
I bought this as a start in html. It started well except for needing more accurate proof reading, and I was able to start writing html. However around about chap 4 the problems started to be more serious. Placing an image (for example), yes the detail of positioning, aligning was OK but no example of just simply placing an image. This threw me and I hunted through web helps etc and cracked it, but from then on more gaps appeared in the lectures although you can sometimes come across an explanation (almost by accident it seemed)in connection with another lecture 10-20 pages on.
Definitely not a book for a beginner and if your not a beginner I'm not sure what you would need it for, perhaps to check up on html5?

Many thanks for taking the time to review my book. I fully respect your opinions and what you wrote, but wish to point out that this book has also received numerous very positive reviews elsewhere (many from beginners who did find the book taught what they wanted to learn), and would encourage anyone thinking of purchasing this book to also read the reviews from American readers, below, to get a wider set of reactions.
