The video was very well done and easy to follow.

This dvd + book set turned out to be the "HTML4 to HTML5 transition" resource I was looking for.

This dvd + book set turned out to be the "HTML4 to HTML5 transition" resource I was looking for.

Delivered like a screencast, the presenter went through a mix of HTML5 demos, website examples, and general instruction. I purchased this set just to read the book, but put the video on anyway, and was surprised to find myself watching and following along with the book. The presenter is highly-knowledgeable, articulate, and even kept my attention as he went through things I'd normally skip in print - like the history of HTML.

The "reference guide" book is included in BOTH paperback and PDF formats. (Thank you publishers for not making me have to decide which format to purchase!) It has a couple errors in the code examples, and is light in element attribute/object information, but for what must have been a quick rush to print, it's thorough enough to be a standalone book. You can definitely start integrating HTML5 into your code after reading (even if you don't watch the video).

And {{{ SPOILER INFO }}} at the end of the video, the instructor reveals that he created the presentation slides using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. He includes a link to the source code/live version on the DVD.

Highly recommended for busy web designers who want to get up-to-speed on HTML5; especially if you like your information delivered in a screencast format, a quick-read book, or a combo of both.

The paper portion of this bundle was perfect. The prose was succicnt, the examples were well articulated, and after the quick read, I felt confident that I could upgrade a page or an entire site to HTML 5. I've already lent the book to a coworker who also found it to be a quick, efficient, and informative read.

I've spent days in the past digging through the weeds of 500+ page tech books with walls of text and incoherant examples. (As if the authors were paid by the page.) This book covers a ton of material in a crisp style with ample efficient, complete examples and useful references to relevant websites and validators. I hope that more tech books begin to follow this style.

I see the previous reviewer felt Tantek was dry. I'm sorry, I didn't feel that way AT ALL. He's very informative. He's brilliant. He's been involved in the development of HTML5 (and microformats). Years ago, he led the development for Internet Explorer 5 for Mac--which was an amazing browser in its day--so he's a tech person who knows his stuff. It's sad that people expect to be entertained on a subject like this. I wasn't bored for a moment.

This is a 2 hour video, so it can't be completely comprehensive (for a 900 page spec, neither can the books). It's definitely boiled down to the good parts with enough information to get you up to speed and get your sites converted to (or new sites built in) HTML5--to whatever degree you decide to implement it at this point. Regardless, if you're a visual or auditory learner, this is a title worth consuming. There's a 100 page PDF that accompanies the video. So I watched/listened to the video while I was doing things, and then I had the 50 page printed book and 100 page pdf to refer to as needed. It's definitely a win-win. :) Highly recommended!

I found the book to be extremely useful and an excellent resource for HTML 5. Tantek is very thorough and very clear in his explanations about what designers have to do right now to make their sites HTML 5 compliant. The video was very well done and easy to follow. When reading the book and watching the video it was clear to me that Tantek is very passionate about sharing his knowledge and helping others learn to keep up with the latest developments of the web.

The main reason I took time to write this review was because I felt that the reviewer who gave 2 stars and said the video was boring (and like a history lesson) was being very unfair in reviewing this book.
