Hopefully she has an "Advanced HTML5 for Mobile Devices" in the wings.
Mobile HTML5 has an extensive index that would have been very valuable in the paperback but of low value in Kindle. You can GoTo the start of the index and then scroll through to the entry you want. I gave up while still in the A's (or B's). Scrolling just takes too long. You can bypass the index by using search but the search results are not efficient either. Each search result has 5 lines of snippet with the search term highlighted and a useless, wasted line telling you the location. As a result, you have only 3 results per screen. So, it is back to scrolling.
The table of contents is difficult to navigate as well. A triangular hot spot for toggling chapter and major sub-sections expands the chapter entry to include major sections. The hot spot is too small and it is way to easy to be taken to the chapter instead.
As it turned out, the book is introductory and less a reference. For that, I would give the book content 4 stars. It got me started. The overall 3 star rating is that the Kindle format makes this a book I will avoid going back to, even for the parts I might want to find again.
The book is no small read, not a book to try and read cover to cover in one sitting.. (or even five). This is one of those books you can refer to often. It's helped me quite a few times already, not just with mobile but also with HTML5 in general.
