5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book on jQuery, JavaScript, and AJAX, May 17 2009
David Warren (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: jQuery in Action (Paperback)
Without a doubt, understanding and using the amazing JavaScript framework called jQuery will become an integral part of most future web development. If you are not sure about this statement, read this book.

"jQuery in Action" opened my eyes to how jQuery is used for selecting elements on a web page and manipulating the content of those elements. The book also has many great examples of adding behaviors to web page elements using jQuery's unobtrusive way of adding event handlers. jQuery also supports more advanced features such as animation effects and powerful methods for supporting AJAX. jQuery can be extended through utility functions and plugins. All of these topics are conveyed with an appropriate amount of detail and a very accessible writing style. In the appendix you will find an excellent explanation of object oriented JavaScript and other JavaScript essentials.

"jQuery in Action" is extremely well written. Certainly one of the best programming books I have read so far.
