This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Also, I'm curious to know how in-depth the book goes into Canvas. I've seen some amazing things created with it, but haven't really taken the dive yet myself.
@Bear Could you please help me to find were I can see free chapters available at the book's site? And I can see in the table of contents this - Advanced <canvas>: gradients, shadows, and animation so I'm not sure that the book covers Canvas fully... Maybe Rob will clarify this.

You can see on the Welcome page the link to the Book's page - and from there it has Samples from Chapter 1 and Chapter 3:
Yeah, I think Rob is right. It's impossible to cover all points of the Canvas in one chapter. So more special book needed for this. I think the Canvas is one of the most used things of HMTL5 in the future. Not Flash or JavaFx, HTML5 is the future!
@Rob, you mentioned your new book (HTML5 in action), I think it will be great book, somekind like Spring in Action, but could you please say when you are going to finish this book? And will we have the opportunity to win a copy of this book?
I think currently our target for HTML5 in Action publication is January, I'm sure there will be any number of promotions for it but I've not checked out the marketing plan as yet (too busy trying to finish it off!).
