This is one of the best books I have ever read for web accessibility. The author's close relationship with W3C (he is a 'W3C Invited Expert') and the fact that he is a Senior Accessibility Consultant of NCBI since 2005 grabbed my attention before I read this book.
What I enjoyed the most by reading 'Pro HTML5 Accessibility' was that except the theory, I could use (almost) ready-made code snippets.
I recommend this book to anyone who seriously want to build accessible web sites authored with HTML5

It's an "okay" book, not ground-breaking, but a pretty good and concise overview. There isn't that much new stuff about HTML5, so most of the book is padded with general accessibility tips and a section about screenreaders, which I really liked. WAI-ARIA is given a chapter, but it's more of an invitation to do your own research than a thorough overview.
Summing up: good book in itself, but if you're an accessibility pro, don't expect to be awed.

The style of writing was way too casual for a "professional" book; the book could easily have lost 25% of its length had the friendly discussion been cut.

There were some interesting accessibility ideas, and some background information over the limitations some users face was interesting. There could have been more specific details on what is required according to different major standards -- too much hand waiving and opinion; not enough fact.
