Cover of "Introducing HTML5"

If you’re looking for a nice, readable, non-stuffy, example-rich book to help you get started with HTML 5, I suggest checking out Bruce Lawton’s and Remy Sharp’s Introducing HTML 5. Covered in its chapters are:

  • Page structure
  • Text and structuring main content areas
  • Forms
  • Video and audio
  • Canvas
  • Data storage
  • Running while offline
  • Drag and drop
  • Geolocation
  • Messages, workers and sockets

I picked up the book this past weekend and have been enjoying it, as have the reviewers on Amazon, who’ve given it an average rating of four and a half stars.
