However, it does not serve as a beginners guide to HTML. The book assumes that you're already familiar with coding in HTML and makes no attempt to teach you the basics. I don't count this as a fault against the book, but I do think it needs to be said.
The authors also spend quite a bit of time talking about accessibility features (working with screenreaders and so forth). It's a good topic and worthy of a book by itself, but the amount of time they devote to it in this book seems disproportional. I'd offer the authors my advice of toning down that topic in this book and devoting another book to it instead.
I found the book practical in that you can begin HTML 5 development after reading the book and by using the provided resources make sure it works in ALL browsers (yes even IE).
I knocked off two stars because there are two missing elements to the book: source code for download and a PDF version (I would even pay a small extra fee for that option).
If you want a concise but complete primer to HTML 5 this is a good book to purchase. It does assume you know something about prior versions HTML.
