2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Riccardo Audano on 11 July 2013
Format: Paperback
I must admit that I was skeptical that such a young author would be able to resist the "I will show you how cool I am" temptation and produce a simple, straightforward, no frills presentation, which is exactly what a beginner needs, but this is exactly what this book is. Very clear, I would say "very clean" presentation style, step by step, with plenty of examples from the two line snippet just to explain the concept to the slightly more complex and functional to make sense of how to put jQuery to work in your pages. It manages to present the concepts and ideas in a very "organic" and structured way, giving a sense of unity and progression and avoiding the boring "api reference" style that plagues many books on software libraries.
It also gives a very gentle, useful and approachable introduction to plugin development, and this is great since this is a subject that need a little demystifying for beginners. My only gripe, it's quite a short book, It' s admirable that it manages to be so good being so short, but with a few more examples and and intro to jQery UI and mobile it would have passed from "very good book" to "exceptional work!". On the other hand, not being bulky probably makes it less intimidating for a beginner...

You know what its like when you are buy a book and you're look at all the tops ones and you make your choice terrified that its going to be crap and that you've wasted your money... this is not one of those times. I found it to be a great and insightful read that made my life easier and improved my ability in a very un-scary way. Great book, have recommended to many and I even thought it was good enough to come back and review... thats saying something.

One of the best jQuery beginner book 27 Dec. 2013
By Ivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If I could I would give this book 4,5 stars.
I can't believe that such youthful author has written so
structured and organized book.

Jack Franklin takes special care on readers who don't know JavaScript fundamentals and he
introduces JavaScript syntax step by step.

I especially like that author keeps focus on jQuery and assumes that reader is familiar with HTML and CSS.

Code examples are very advantageous and easy to understand.

After reading this book you will learn not only jQuery but also JavaScript programming in general.

My only complaint is that AJAX chapter was too short and as
another reviewer wrote it would be nice to see intro to jQuery UI.

Best jQuery beginner book. 26 Mar. 2013
By Kubilay Kucukoglu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are starting to learn or want a simple introduction to jQuery, this book gives the reader what it promises in it's title. What the author tries to accomplish is to give the reader a solid jQuery base knowledge and suceded. The book is easy to follow and the topics are clearly inrodused so that you read every part once. Before delving into the advanced jQuery topics , this book will be a big help for beginners to understand the philosopy behind jQuery.

Needs better structural organization of examples 18 Feb. 2013
By Allon Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While the book provides a good foundation for understanding jQuery, the book presents some of the jQuery code in a manner that may not be structure well for a beginner. The author presents some of the code in an ad-hoc way instead of in specific structured examples the flow. This stands-out specifically in Chapter7: Animation. The author initially presents the values an animate() method can potentially take, by providing jQuery code, however, the complimentary html/xhtml code is not initially presented. Eventually, the author presents a more complete example. In addition to that, the overall presentation of the book is sloppy. The only reason I'm giving this book 3 stars is because I was able to learn what I needed to, however, for an Apress book, I would expect a lot. After looking at Pro jQuery, I think that would be a better read for beginners as well as serve as a great reference once they move beyond beginner level.

not didactic 24 Oct. 2013
By Alain Kamgue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
cause of me the library of my University bought this book.

I was impress from the comment (4 star).
The fact ist It ddoesn't take you from novice to professionnal.

This guy is gut and for sure good programmer but he should be at the place of someone who is trying alone to understand how Jquery work.

It is not structured.
expression in the starting chapter like :
$(function(){$("body").CSS("background","red")});
are not far from chinese language.
Is it aliens language or language from Bangladesh ?

I m french native language and It is fight to read this book..
The title ist beginning Jquery but the guy don't really care about beginner.
The title should be Jquery for at least intermediate programmers. not for beginner.
I decide to look for another book like Jquery missing manual or Headfirst Jquery
