2. It's very focused. You won't be distracted with anecdotes and jokes: to the contrary, every word is targeted at teaching you precisely what you need to know.
3. It's sparingly written - which means the author manages to cover a huge amount of material in less than 500 pages.
E.g. the paragraph on radial gradients in CSS will tell you that the syntax takes a parameter for the shape and that the first parameter determines the starting position of the gradient expressed in pixels, etc ... but from there on it's up to you to try it out yourself. In other words, the author will tell you precisely what you need to know ... but it's then up to you to put that knowledge into practice and to experiment so as to
4. It's very comprehensive.
5. It's accurate. I've not yet found any errors or typos.
6. It's clearly written and easy to understand (even when the topics are technically difficult).
It's important to note that this is NOT an elementary "build your first website" book, and is probably not well suited to someone who isn't technical and who hasn't done at least basic website development or programming.
However, it's the perfect book for someone who learned HTML long ago or who is familiar with back-end technologies and who now wants to quickly and thoroughly learn to implement the latest and best front-end technologies.Read more ›
The web site for the book not only has all the code, it also provides a wealth of links to really useful supplemental material.
Buy the book. Wrox, Apress and the rest could learn a few things from this guy. I only give four stars rather than five because the Kindle edition has a few lines of obscured text here and there. I can paste them into a text editor and read them, but really Amazon...
The ordering is perfect. As I read about each topic, I was thinking "This seems great, but I don't know how I could apply it without X." And then "X" would be the next topic! When I start actually programming something based on HTML5, I know that I will use this book as a reference to go back and try out some of the more complex examples.
Worth every penny!
