HTML5 for Publishers is a tutorial aimed at publishers who want to expand their ebooks beyond traditional text-and-graphics. This ebook addresses how to add Canvas, Geolocation, and Audio/Video.

It starts with a brief tutorial on HTML and JavaScript and then move to specific examples that put HTML5 in action.

(1) The specific demos include a graphic calculator that uses Canvas.
(2) Finger painting application for drawing pictures on a page
(3) Demp of how an ebook can be customized with the reader's current location
(4) An audio-enabled glossary that lets you hear each term
(5) Embedded video along with instructional text to supplement the video

You get the actual code for the example from a web download specified in the book along with the explanations. The explanations are clear, the examples are complete, the author allows portions of the code to be re-used without asking for permission.

I liked the author also states the compatibility with major EPUB reader platforms for each feature.

This is an excellent tutorial, it exceed my expectations in both clarity and completeness.

I'm the developer of an HTML & CSS checking tool for Windows so I've had more than my 'fair share' learning HTML and CSS, but I was not as familiar with eBook publishing, MathML, and SVG.

I can say that I enjoyed reading this book and think I learned a good amount of information from it even though it's not that lengthy, in-depth, or broad. I'd say it's an 'intermediate' level book. It's not for beginners because it assumes one already knows a bit about HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. More advanced or experienced programmers could also learn from this book if they are not familiar with the presented topics.

As some other reviews may mention, it doesn't cover a great deal and doesn't go into deep detail, but I still found it interesting and informative. The examples certainly did their job in explaining and clarifying certain aspects of things like canvas, geolocation, and MathML, and SVG. Also, the book gives some good references that one can use to further investigate topics and go deeper into the details.

If I had paid $20+ for it, then I could understand the lower ratings, but for the current price of $0, I really can't find anything to complain about, so I'm giving this book 5 stars. I certainly got more than my money's worth out of it.

The book provides enough information for smart people to get up and running. However it was extremely simple and doesn't even scratch the surface of publishing with html5. The information is not enough to do any serious production ready work. The learning curve that you will have trying to look up resources online will not be any flatter because of this book.

There are good code examples however these are extremely basic and all the resources point to other content that will presumably teach you for real (for a price). Presumably this book is free simply to point you towards paid resources by the same publisher.

Sanders Kleinfeld, HTML5 for Publishers (O'Reilly Media, 2011)

A very high-level overview of three specific new features in HTML5; the title is a bit misleading in that regard. If you're interested in learning the basics about canvas, audio/video embedding, or geolocation, this is an interesting starting point—but eventually you will find yourself needing to grab a more in-depth resource. In other words, if you already know you are interested in incorporating these things into ebooks, you can simply skip this and dive straight into something that goes into more detail. On the other hand, if you just want to explore the possibilities, this is a quick, easy read that will do just that. **

I bought this to refresh my knowledge of HTML coding
(I just have a little family type website .. so for me it is not necessary to be all fancy and out there .. )
There's some bits of new information that makes it far easier for me to set up tables
(like calendars)
Just great for basic knowledge

This book has some good example which include the source code. They could have been better introduced. The book jumps right to the code and attempts to explain everything all at once missing a few things. That said the code examples work.

For a free book on HTML 5, this can't be beat. For someone fairly new to the world of HTML 5, this gives a good taste of it's capabilities. I've only read about half the book so far, but am already impressed with it. It mostly is code examples, but the examples are good and shows what can be done with HTML 5.
For the price(free), this is worth your time to read, if you are wondering what the hype is about HTML 5.

Excellent, as are all the O'Reilly books I've come across. I have been after an HTML5 book that specifically addresses publishing, so I am delighted to have found this one.
