It also includes introductions to the html5 canvas, jQuery-UI and other bits and pieces (html5 sockets, google charts etc). But these are just to give you a flavor and point you in the right direction.

Hmmmm. This book was a bit of mess.
This is following with a quick look at a graph showing that, actually, this doesn't make much difference - but - hey! - bare it in mind, and then, the author's on to the next topic. And the next. And the next.
It does describe some useful principles, drawing with JQuery Mobile, a bit of HTML 5 Canvas, but overall, the book feels like a collection of slightly-related ideas, thrown together in a book, in the hope that some of them would be useful to a developer. You'll certainly pick up some useful ideas and programming methods, but will need to buy further books to get a real grasp on any of the topics. For example, SVG, which is one of the topics mentioned in the book's title, is summarized in little more than half of a page.
