What enables this Third Edition to work so well for me is that it contains links to downloadable examples that (a) actually work, and (b) do things one might actually want to do.
More specifically, the book's examples of working with HTML pages' DOMs (Chapter 10, especially) were the first such examples I encountered that I could actually make sense of and make use of. Stated another way, I've had all I want to have of books that use wholly theoretical, non-working "examples" to illustrate key concepts, DOM or otherwise.
EDIT / ADDENDUM:
My point is that the book has proven to be better at explaining AJAX than were a couple of books that had the word AJAX, and even the phrase "beginning AJAX" in the title. So my initial satisfaction with this book continues unabated...
