4.0 out of 5 stars Clean Work!, 11 July 2013
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...
