4.0 out of 5 stars Best Yet
I have to disagree with the previous reviewer's comments. The code is well presented and standalone in this book. Unfortunately it is all too easy to make syntax errors that stop the code working. This cannot however be attributed to the author but is more a function of working with Javascript on a day to day basis. I found the examples good and covers most topics in more...

Areas of weakness are the chapters on DOH and the build system which really require expansion in a future edition.

My colleagues and I have been using Dojo in anger for about 8 months now, so perhaps this text should be viewed as a more advanced text.
