1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this book - I would have given it -10 stars, 28 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Bulletproof Ajax (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
This book is total rubbish, I bought it to lean Ajax and make my websites look cool but you can't learn anything from this book. There are many code segments which mean nothing unless you can see all the code a - collection of functions is useless if you can't see how they work in html.
It talks about the advantages and disadvantages of XML, then looks at JSON telling us that it stands for "JavaScript Object Notation, and pronounced like the name Jason. Incidentally in Greek mythology, one of Jasons Argonauts was Telamon, father of Ajax"
Why not just say JavaScript Object Notation pronounced Jason - and
If I wanted a book on Greek mythology I would have bought one. I paid £24.99 for the book read it twice and leant nothing.

I think your opinion is more based on the lack of your programming knowledge than the book itself. Many programming books will just show the code required for the explaination because it is assumed the readers understand they can use the code within the context of their own code to make it functional. You might find some books in the "for Dummies" range more suited to your abilities.
