"a general survey" - by Perry Tew on 09-AUG-2012

this book was a general survey, which gave me further topics to research.  pretty short, although the examples provide seemed written by a highly competent person.

I blame much of the downsides to the book to be on the immaturity of html5 in terms of standards and browser implementation.   I would imagine a second revision of the book, once more html5 is cemented, would be quite useful.
