I have written JavaScript for the last 10 years and found it to be a very useful language although a little simple with tons and tons of typing (or copy/pasting) to achieve anything.

When jQuery first appeared I was immediately interested but did not have the time to dig deeper. Having just finished a three year project I decided that I needed to get to know jQuery.

It is like someone at JS listened to me banging on about JavaScript and built something better so now all I needed was a manual. By downloading EVERY jQuery sample and reading every one I came to this book. I read it from cover to cover the moment it downloaded and started practicing the techniques right away. I have surfaced for a few hours only before plunging in again and felt I must say `Cheers Bud` to the author for this excellent tome (are they still tomes if they are electronic?). I do not think this book would be perfect for someone who does not know JavaScript but for me it is an `Ile Flottane` of loveliness.

OK, waffle over, got to get back to it.

Require you to have some knowledge of JavaScript. One of the best technical books out there.

I looked at some jQuery books before for the little-bit of web development I do and I got the idea that they were addressing the dumb. No real substance, not very practical. With hesitation I purchased this book, but how different. It builds from simple very quickly to some real life examples that are usable and trigger the desire to expiriment and personalize.
In all I can only say that I enjoyed this book. Well written, good examples, working and very useful.
Modern webdesign has come a lot closer to me and it was easy to digest.

until I got this book, I had no idea, how powerfull Jquery was.

The book's explanations are well defined and clear,
with just enough humor to make this a must have book.

The authors have worked well together.

they take you through a gentle introduction, which is absolutely necessary, to some quite advanced stuff at the end.

Excellent and easy to understand jquery book. I am already familiar with the jquery api, but just wanted a good overview of plugins, which this book covers. Nice examples, all well laid out. Great book.
