5.0 out of 5 stars This book is definitely worth spending money on it, 6 Feb 2013
This review is from: JQuery, JQuery UI, and JQuery Mobile: Recipes and Examples (Developer's Library) (Paperback)
A lot of recipes that are ready to use in your project or at least you can get more ideas if you stuck.

The authors don't focus on explaining what all functions do in deep details so this might be hard for beginners but even they can understand what's going on in the code.

Code examples are really simple, without unneeded html or js lines so you've got clear view.
If you want to learn jQuery then this book is for you, if you know jQuery well this book is also for you just to refresh your knowledge or learn some new solutions.

Personally I like two things in this book:
1. No screenshots - so if you want to see what this code does you need to write it, great way of learning!
2. "please externalize this code to an external .js file" - this comment you will find in every code example until chapter 9 and imo it's important to remind people to not attach js code in html file.

I definitely recommend this book for beginners and advanced users!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read., 28 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JQuery, JQuery UI, and JQuery Mobile: Recipes and Examples (Developer's Library) (Paperback)
I'm not a professional web developer, but have been writing code for many years. While I have a good grasp of Javascript, I needed some help getting to grips with jQuery quickly for a personal project.

I read the sample pages on Amazon, and after a couple of pages I knew this was the right book for me. The style of the book is more like a guide, the author takes you through a tour of useful features, and give you examples of how the feature works. This is completely different to other books which takes on a user manual style, which can often become dry and coma inducing.

On the back of the back is a code that you can use to claim 45 days worth of access to the online version of the book from the publisher. I haven't tried this yet, but I thought 45 days is a bit stingy, feels like a slap on the face to be honest.
