If you are a beginner to HTML and CSS - this is not your book. It has been quite a number of years since I had done any web development so I decided to pick it back up with HTML 5. Though the title says "beginning" it isn't for beginners or those needing a refresher. The author assumes prior experience with HTML 4 and this was quite clear from the first chapter. Therefore, this one goes back so that I can look into something more fit for my particular needs. I can't speak for its usefulness to someone more experienced but the title definitely doesn't accurately convey who the intended audience is.
The index is absolutely worthless and the failure to provide downloadable code, as is the wont of every publisher I've encountered, make this a near-worthless text.
Absolutely amateurish presentation on top of it all.
Although I have years of experience on front-end web development, I got my hands on this book after a colleague pointed it to me as a great resource to get up to date regarding web technologies. This book is a collection of everything HTML5 and CSS3 brings, explained in a simple and casual tone. What surprised me the most was the breadth and depth of knowledge. Sections progress from explaining the basics using snippets of code and illustrations, to explaining every detail of new properties. Now that browsers are finally catching up with these technologies, the content of this book is not only up to date, it is ahead in some aspects. It finished off with an essay about... the future of CSS, CSS4.
All in all, if you're interested in certain aspects of HTML5 and CSS3 this book gives a good explanation about them and serves as a good reference book in the future.
