Nothing more than a subset of online API docs April 28 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really had high hopes for this title, after examining the table of contents. But the contents are bare bones, and it appeared to me, to be a partial subset of the online API documentation for jQuery and some relevant plugins. Yes, there is a rudimentary chapter on Javascript, but it adds nothing to the knowledge store of an already experienced developer, and would be totally insufficient (unlike Crockford's *Javascript: The Good Parts*, which the chapter specifically references).

Furthermore, there are some major print annoyances -- such as every code listing includes a large text and graphic image indicating code blurb is available for download at Was that really necessary? Could not that have been specified in the book introduction/prefix, where to download the example code? And most of the examples were so simple and basic, even more remedial than the online docs at [...] (or at any of the plugin topics like jQuery templates, QUnit, etc....).

I really feel ripped off of $20-30 for purchasing this title, cannot recall the exact amount I paid on the Amazon order...
More of an Introduction to jQuery Jan. 7 2013
By George - Published on
Format: Paperback
Found this book more than an introduction to jQUERY than anything else. It does cover a wide range of content, but it does not seem to go into depth as much as I would've liked. I think this book would be a fine choice for someone who doesn't have a great deal of knowledge or experience with jQuery.
Some reviewers have noted that there is a wealth of information about jQuery online and someone looking at a particular area of jQuery would probably be better served going online. The book strength lies in that it offers a wealth of information that the reader may not have thought about before. For me it was chapter 14 - "Unit Testing with Qunit".
I would give this book between three stars and four stars because of the lack of depth on the subject matters.
I would recommend this book for someone who is looking for a good introduction into jQuery before they move on to all the online resources that are available.

Save your money Dec 31 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are better resources online and this book has little to offer a person who actually knows jQuery and is looking for an advanced resource to better their skills.

If you haven't worked with jQuery before then you will benefit from reading this book but if you have, save your money and do your research online.

I would have rated this book higher but I feel there are too many five star reviews so I'm rating it one star.

Excellent book May 31 2012
By Jim Briggs - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well written, just the right amount of information and depth for me. Too many books drone on for 900 pages about stuff that you'll never use. The more advanced stuff (optimization, app structuring, etc) was just what I was looking for. So now go off and write an advanced JQuery mobile. (I didn't mind the numerous spelling mistakes :)

Great book when it comes to JavaScript for modern needs May 7 2012
By Cydonia - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great book to have on the shelf if your project calls for the latest and greatest approaches to jQuery. This goes beyond the simple "Make me a slider!" kind of stuff and explains things in a way that will help you explain how to use the technology beyond a pre-made plug-in.
