  • Description

    The HTML5 spec is 900 pages and hard to read. HTML5 for Web Designers is 85 pages and fun to read. Easy choice.

    HTML5 is the longest HTML specification ever written. It is also the most powerful, and in some ways, the most confusing. What do accessible, content-focused standards-based web designers and front-end developers need to know? And how can we harness the power of HTML5 in today’s browsers?
    In this brilliant and entertaining user’s guide, Jeremy Keith cuts to the chase, with crisp, clear, practical examples, and his patented twinkle and charm.

      I bought this book hoping it would teach me html5. It doesn't instruct as much as it's a glossy overview of html5.

      What a shame. This book is a mere brochure. I read it in a couple of hours and came out with very little, it's so unbelievably brief. It would be fairly priced at about $2. I don't think I'd ever buy any more Books Apart based on this.

      This book was more about tagging document copy and less about design than I expected.
    • Fantastic.

      100% technical accuracy while maintaining witty humour throughout the book. If you're someone who finds yourself unable to complete dry technical books, but you'd still like to learn HTML5...look no further. This is the one.
    • Over promise, under deliver

      Long story short, I was expecting more out of a $9.99 book. It's clear that the author is passionate about web design and how HTML5 is going to introduce game-changing features to the web, and for that I appreciate and agree with him. Felt more like reading a blog series than an actual book on HTML5.
    • A must have book!

      If you think you understand HTML5 take a second to read this book. It really gives a good understanding of how it all came to be which gives you a great understand of how it affects you today. Trust me it is perfect,
    • Great orientation guide

      It's really good to know the history of HTML. It makes the whole concept easier to understand. However, I'm a complete beginner for the most part now, the parts where it started using other code like JavaScript were really confusing and took away from my experience. If they plan to use JavaScript in their book series they should place it before putting it in other books.
    • Great Concise Read

      This book cleared up a lot of the cloudiness around HTML5 for me. It gave a clear understanding of the new tags, attributes, and techniques introduces with the new spec. It was a good read, and the humor made me laugh out loud a few times :P. Buy it if your not already an expert.
