What People Are Saying

  • HTML remains the foundation of everything we build for the web, from the simplest page to the most complex experience. To properly understand this foundation—particularly in its most recent incarnation, HTML5—there’s no better primer than the second edition of this book.

  • Crack open this book after you fasten your seatbelt in Boston. Before you land in Chicago, you’ll stop worrying and finally, fully understand HTML5. As usual, Mr. Keith takes a complex topic and eloquently describes it for the rest of us.

  • With superhuman ease and wit, Jeremy Keith always makes the densest technical concepts seem approachable, intuitive, and—dare I say it—fun. He’s done it again with HTML5.

About the Author

Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, and Resilient Web Design. Hailing from Erin's green shores, Jeremy maintains his link to Irish traditional music running the community site The Session. He also indulges a darker side of his bouzouki-playing in the band Salter Cane. Jeremy spends most of his time goofing off on the internet, documenting his time-wasting on adactio.com, where he has been writing for over fifteen years.
