Format: Paperback
In the span of the hour or so it took to read this book (yes, it's that easy to read), I got a very quick introduction to the origins and design principles that form the foundation of HTML5.

This is the book to read if:

1] you've ever wondered about what happened to XHTML, and why HTML5 seems to take a step backward in terms of standardization and strictness.

2] you are curious about the design principles that underpin this new standard (e.g., the Priority of Constituencies states that "in cases of conflict, consider users over authors over implementers over specifiers over theoretical purity".)

3] you need a fly-by tour of new HTML elements and attributes.

While you don't get an HTML5 reference manual with a detailed treatment of the new JavaScript APIs, I found this book to be a very useful and enjoyable supplemental text.

Happy Reading!

The main reason I bought this book was to learn exactly WHY I should use HTML5. This book failed to answer that question. It goes into great detail about the history of HTML and how HTML5 came to be, but the new features discussion is somewhat limited. It is not nearly as detailed about the benefits and best practices of those new features.

It's well-written and fun to read, but it's definitely not the most comprehensive HTML5 resource.

Going to try The Truth About HTML5 (For Web Designers) next. The reviews sound promising.

Very dense. Not for beginners at all.
