I also like very much that every example followed by a fallback code for IE, and how to use those technologies now-days!
You will not read it as learning book, but you will use it as a great reference book.
While I will admit that the subject (HTML 5 / CSS 3) doesn't quite lend itself to a straightforward explanation-- this book offers little more than what can be discovered reading the W3C Dev Guide ( [...] ) or the actual Spec for adventurous souls with a pretty solid background understanding of web development jargon ( [...] )
The rest of the book is a modified cookbook of How To's -- not being a big fan of cookbook-style development books since nine times out of ten, the 'best practice' of how to accomplish something in the field can turn on a dime with a single blog post by some bright developer, this is where the bulk of my disappointment came from.
With that all said, and after paging through a couple HTML 5 & CSS 3 books at my local bookseller, this book is still one of the better books out there on the subject-- a compliment to the author and publisher.
So, to sum it up, at least in my opinion:
- It doesn't cover the spec in detail, only focusing on the poster child new elements/attributes like <header>, <footer>, <article>, and autofocus.
- It wastes time on things it even admits are no longer in the html 5 Spec.
Even with that said, I wouldn't even say its a good book for people JUST getting their feet wet in html / css since it doesn't cover them in enough detail to really understand how to properly, semantically markup content and present it to the user.
I eagerly await a 2nd edition of this one-- maybe by then HTML 5 and CSS3 will be more solidly defined and implemented to the point where the author can really make it come to life.
