I am reviewing the print version, but I just got the electronic version for free since I bought the print version (but haven't used the electronic version yet). I wasn't aware that I could get the electronic version for free because I bought the print version (perhaps this is something new as I did not know I would get this at the time I bought the print version).Lots of good information for someone already familiar with HTML (at least a basic understanding) and some software development experience. This book is not for total newbies.I got a lot from this book, including how to better use browsers like Chrome (and their integrated development tools which are now very well done and very helpful) to develop and debug web documents and applications... not to mention a lot about jQuery.What was a bit different was also the discussion on some topics related more to real-world issues that developers run into and encounter that may not usually be found in other books that simply talk about the languages.The book is light on the server end, so consider this a "client side" book.Now for a few rants:* Could have used better editing for grammar, spelling, and typos* Some parts of the book seemed like they were printed too lightly; it looks like others have had miscellaneous print issues as well (fortunately these issues were minor for me)* There's no index; I found myself wanting to look something up in the index but there was none... I suppose this isn't much of an issue if you have the electronic version though* I ran into some problems with Chrome's caching, causing me to wonder why I wasn't seeing what I thought I would or why the examples weren't working like I thought they should.
