How does the web work? Google has a beautifully illustrated primer for you...

Few of us know everything we'd like to about the magic and dangers of the World Wide Web. It is so much like magic to so many, that they avoid it because they think it is beyond their understanding.  I guess Google wants you to have a warm fuzzy feeling about the web as well, because they've just published a guide that looks more like a children's book than a technical guide.  That is to say it makes the topic approachable and inviting.  

The book may be designed primarily to help people learn about the Internet, but it's so delightfully illustrated and animated including nice page flips, and all without Flash, that I hope it starts up a conversation of how the web could be a richer place using HTML 5.
