    Comments about oreilly HTML5 Foundations:

    Out of numerous course work books that I've used Treehouse is my favorite. The layout, explanations, and projects are thorough and easy to follow. And they transition well into everyday use. I like this product so much that I'm going to join there online courses as well. I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to learn about web design or programming.
