About the Author

Sporting a Masters in Information Technology and a lifetime of experience on the "web of hard knocks", Earle Castledine (Mr Speaker) holds an interest in everything to do with computers. A Senior Systems Analyst and JavaScript expert - he is equally happy in the muddy pits of .NET code as in the fluffy fields of client-side interaction development. Co-creator of the client-side opus TurnTubelis, Earle recognizes the Internet not as a lubricant for social change, but as a vehicle for unleashing frivolous ECMAScript gadgets and interesting time-wasting technologies.

Craig Sharkie's intricate knowledge of best-practice JavaScript is apparent in his writing. He began his jQuery journey as a Fine Arts graduate turned programmer, and has successfully worked with some of the Web's biggest names. Craig discovered JavaScript in 1995 and has been an evangelist for the "good parts" since then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent jQuery reference May 18 2012
By JM555 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I originally purchased the 1st version of this book, and decided to buy the 2nd version for the updated content. I hardly ever buy a newer version of the same book, so that should tell you how good this book is. Before reading this book I knew nothing about jQuery and by the time I was finished I felt very comfortable with it, and I was able to make some pretty significant enhancements to various websites.

This book covers all the key topics, but the best part of this book is that it's written in a way which is easy to understand - it's not so technical and boring that you'll fall asleep after reading 2 pages. I wish more books were written like this! There are some good real-world examples in this book as well. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best jQuery Book I've Read Yet June 23 2012
By webdev - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read the first edition twice. I've since read this newest edition once. There is so much info packed into this book, and so many real world examples, it's impossible to take everything in with only a single read.

I've also read the Missing Manual Javascript and jQuery title which I highly recommend, as well as a couple of jQuery/Wordpress books. Out of all these, despite the fact it is a Sitepoint book, I'd say this book is the most comprehensive of all the guides I've read. There were a couple of glitches in some examples, particularly a missing parameter in every use of the on() method, which was strange. But overall, great book.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great book which will help you understand better web development with jQuery. Its a book for novice and intermediate developers. Don't stick to this you can learn a lot more about jQuery, but it's a great start to do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Concise Reference Book! Feb. 28 2014
By SF Beach - Published on Amazon.com
I love this book. It's written very clearly and concisely. While it's easy to read as a reference book, but it's not for beginners. You need some knowledge of javascript to start with, also need to know basic things about CSS.
