Hi Elisabeth & Eric,

I this book in the same (excellent) style of writing
of your previous book on HTML & CSS?

Best,

Yvette

Hi Yvette, it is indeed! You might even see a recurring character or two :-)

Hi Elisabeth & Eric,

In a nutshell the style and content of the book make it a
real page-turner and easy to focus on the otherwise dry
subject.

An added advantage is that the content sticks, it must be
some years now since I read your HTML & CSS and I still
remember the salient parts...

Thanks,

Yvette

Thank you!

A couple things:

(1) we are looking for reviewers/readers for an update of the second book.

(2) we'd love feedback on topics in HTML5 that you'd like more material on (video instruction etc)

Interesting.

Time permitting, I'd be willing to do some
reviewing/reading for the update of the 2nd
book...

How does that work?

Yvette, we'd get you signed up as a tech reviewer through O'Reilly. They manage that process, choosing reviewers from a pool of people.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
