A Book Apart: Empowering Fuzzy Teams in 100 Pages or Less

On Sunday, I reread Jeremy Keith‘s HTML5 for Web Designers, from cover to cover, on the plane to An Event Apart San Diego. I first read it when it arrived on my doorstep in July, but I am in a different mindset now — beginning a new product adventure — and I wanted to refresh my memory.

I am dazzled by its astounding simplicity. I never knew that depth could be so succinct, or that the exegesis of a specification could be filled with such drama. It’s like an E! True Hollywood Story — but with brains.

Having digested it all, I feel much better equipped to lead my team towards developing a forward-compatible, dynamic, rich yet accessible web app, with a better handle on the appropriate terminology to use with our developers, and a clearer understanding of the constraints of the technology.

HTML5 for Web Designers is a true masterpiece in just 85 pages. Wow.

This is what A Book Apart is all about, and why no other book on the topic will ever come close to touching this. It is the first of many; the upcoming titles were just revealed today, so go check ‘em out!
