Excerpt from "What I've Been Reading - HTML5 for Web Designers."

"As a Web guy whose exposure to HTML and CSS has come exclusively from the routine hacking of free WordPress templates, HTML5 for Web Designers dives into the subject at my level - highlighting the changes and features of code that could change how the Web is organized and developed. Even better, it does so in a way that's akin to the 'spreading the gospel' model of Web talk - 100% devoted to letting the reader understand the code.

Don't get me wrong - it's not going to make my mom understand Web development.

That being understood, it's a wonderful look inside the mind of a development evangelist; Keith's knowledge takes a 900-page slog of a standards guide and boils it down to the 80-some pages you'll actually need to read.

Because, you see, developers don’t aim to make people feel dumb. At least, not as long as we're willing to listen and make a concerted effort to understand."
