The bottom line: If you are going to get only one book on HTML5 this would be at the head of the list. Further, if you want to better understand current and historical HTML, this book is a big help with its' clear explanations.

In summary perhaps the best thing I can say about Iron Python in Action is that it is not just a good Iron Python book but it is a good Python book, period. The testing chapter may be worth the price of the book. I'd recommend the book highly even if Microsoft is not your thing.. It is an excellent and very accessible Python book.
