I read this in its Internet form, where it's called Dive Into Html5, and it's great! In addition to being a great history and overview of the evolution of Html, the e-book also acts as a simple but effective application of Html5 techniques and features. This is one of the few books that actually works better as an e-book.

My only gripe was that it's effectively covering a technology in its infancy (not really its fault, of course), and had to include "Feature not implemented" disclaimers for a lot of things. It was also a bit repetitive with it's javascript feature detection code, which are more-or-less the same code for each new element.

Nevertheless, if you're looking to get started on the future of the web, look no further than this well made--and free!--book. It rocks!
