That's covered in "Introducing HTML5", chapter 2. I'd assume it's covered in HTML5 for Web designers as well, but I haven't read that.

It's not that different, block and inline are (in terminology) replaced by 'flow' and 'phrasing'. Additionally there are 'heading' and 'sectioning' content types that are subsets. 

I'm not sure that the content model has much effect apart from default rendering?
