Overview

HTML5: Everyone’s using it, nobody knows what it is. I realize that sounds more like a line out of an existential movie — maybe Waiting for Godot or a screenplay by Sartre — than a statement about HTML5. But it’s really the truth: most of the people using HTML5 are treating it as HTML4+, or even worse, HTML4 (and some stuff they don’t use). The result? A real delay in the paradigm shift that HTML5 is almost certain to bring. It’s certainly not time to look away, because by the time you look back, you may have missed something really important: a subtle but important transition centered around HTML5.

Talking points about html5
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is little more than an opinion piece on HTML5 that was made into a booklet, as it's far too long-winded for a magazine.

A plesant, quick read. Learned a few tidbits of information but it wasn't terribly informative. I would recommend this to someone who has little to no experience in the field.

These opinions and rants about HTML do disservice to the publisher's reputation. They certainly don't make for a useful introduction to the topic.

Nothing specific, just something about html5. If you expect to learn something, get sample codes or anything similar, this book will be a waste of your time.

It's free! I agree. Why do you want my credit card number

If this product is free, why is it necessary to give credit card information before receiving it? If this is SOP for B&N I'll take my eBook business elsewhere.

A short, down to earth description. I wouldn't stress so much the JavaScript part, but I will definitively recommend it for my (or yours) pointed haired boss.
