3.0 out of 5 stars Informative, but very short., 9 Dec 2008
This review is from: Bulletproof Ajax (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
The first thing I noticed about this book is how short it is. It is only around 200 pages, and has been really lengthened by the fact that there is a 2 inch margin between the text and the edge of the page. I think that if it wasn't for the margin, there would only be around 130 pages. I read this book in the space of 2 hours. Contains a fair amount of background info such as the origin of the term AJAX.

This book has the usual Jeremy Keith style about it; a bit of waffle about Greek mythology followed by a very concise explanation of the actual mechanism, but well written. Fair play to the man.

It is informative, but if you are a programmer this book is a bit of a waste of time - you're better just looking at a couple of ajax articles. I don't think it's worth as much as 14.99 either because of how short it is. Nicely finished in colour, this book is web 2.0 throughout in style. If you are a web designer with absolutely no clue about server side scripting and strongly typed programming, then this is a good option for you.
