Format: Paperback
I have used a number of Dummies books over the years and found them very informative and entertaining.
This book is exactly that - except for the number of typos and missing lines of code in the examples! Really poor and very frustrating when you slavishly copy the example code and it doesnt work!!
I would suggest thinking twice before using this book if you are a beginner.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book to get if you want to quickly get going with JQuery and dont have much or any experience of Javascript. What the book does is give a great intro to cover necessary basics of Javascript and then quickly moves on to Ajax and JQuery. You will then have a much better grasp and understanding of these technologies. This is really what the book is about and I found it excellent. Light, breezy, easy to read yet great technical detail. All the code is on his website too and didnt have any problem getting it working. Perfect book for begginers and if you want to get up to speed on Javascript/Ajax/JQuery as fast as possible.

Too technical for a beginner in JavaScript! I would have preferred more simple examples rather than un-useful anecdotes. Never used it for Ajax I'm afraid... however, I quickly gave up on the JavaScript part.
