This book is going to save new web developers many hours of struggle and pain.
By M.C. Meyer
Cameron patiently walks you through an actual project. By the time you finish it, you'll know what you need to know to build your own feature-rich application. The writing is clear. The teaching is excellent. If you already have some familiarity with HTML and programming, this book may be all you need to take the next step into full-fledged web development.

A reasonable good review of the basics
I was looking for a discussion of the new tags in HTML5 in some depth. This is not the book for that. The audio and video tags seem to rate only a single sentence in passing. A reasonable good review of the basics, but fairly limited to the author's particular interests.

Not a bad book, just not very comprehensive.
By kevin r rothi
This book is just okay. It's a good value for the money. I wouldn't rely on this one as a sole means for learning these technologies, but it's a good supplement to a larger curriculum. I'd give it a C+.
I particularly liked the part where Mr. Cameron went into detail on how to store data on the client machine. I felt like that passage was well done, and I wish the rest of the book was in a similar style.
