Css3 Html5 Books?
Posted 21 January 2012 - 02:06 AM
I belong to those people whom enjoy reading a book still,, and now i am searching for a good book about CSS3 and HTML5 and i want something that you actully go through samples and build stuff not just one that throws specs at me.
so i thought perhaps there was some whom also still read books here that could recomend me a really good starter book i read some but not nearly enough.

But I'm assuming you are wanting much more than that. And unfortunately, I haven't gone the paper-book route to learning code in a long time, so I can't help with that. Sorry.

There is a serious problem with HTML5 as relates to books: the spec itself is close to a thousand pages. Obviously a book of a couple to a few hundred pages can either be a featherlight overview or delve into only a portion.
And, frankly, most of the books on HTML5/CSS3 I've read weren't worth the money. However, what fails for one reader may succeed for another. That disclaimer aside my favourites:
* Sergey's HTML5 & CSS3: Quick Reference. HTML5, CSS3 and APIs. (2nd Edition) by Sergey Mavrody, 02-January-2012.
Brand spanking new edition.
Yes, HTML5/CSS3 needs an entire cheat
Note: this is really a reference book rather than a 'how to' book. Of course the better you get the more that might change.
* The Book of CSS3: A Developer's Guide to the Future of Web Design by Peter Gasston, 13-May-2011.
Note: not the best book for a beginner.
As you'll notice not a single 'HTML5' book.
However, I've had colleagues say they found the following very helpful:
* Introducing HTML5 (2nd Edition) by Bruce Lawson and Remy Sharp, 28-October-2011.
* HTML5 Multimedia: Develop and Design by Ian Devlin, 12-November-2011.
And I've got my eye on several more to buy in the coming months...especially some targeting single or similar elements rather than the entire spectrum...
