This isn't really a book you read. It's a book you keep on hand, and look up tactical items as they show up on your to-do list. Some of the syntax and information is dated, so beware - the recipe for what you want to do might have changed since the book was written. This book is a great complement to "jQuery in Action" from Manning Press, which will tell you "what" you can do with jQuery, whereas this book will tell you, in detail, "how."
Michael Bond
Covers most of the situations one might encounter with jQuery. It was my first book on jQuery, so I started to read it straight through, which does work for a beginner in the early parts of the book. Eventually, though, this becomes tiresome as the recipes become very specific to your problem, and at that point the book becomes better as a mere reference.

This has been a relatively clear book of how approach jQuery, and has information for all types of users. I've been using jQuery for a few years, and found it a good reference for understanding/addressing common problems. Plugin authoring, jQuery UI and QUnit all have significant sections in this book, so you also get support for good development practices that you wouldn't necessarily get out of the API.

The only trouble I have with this book is that jQuery update

I needed an intermediate to advanced book that covered the jQuery JavaScript library for someone who was already familiar with other JavaScript libraries (YUI, Dojo, MooTools). This book fit that need exactly. A quick ramp up on jQuery syntax at the beginning, then right into solutions for common operations, performance tuning, jQuery UI, themes, enhancements and extensions. The book concludes with sections on using jQuery in large projects, using the QUnit test framework, and one of the best se ...more

Ottimo manuale. Parte dalle basi di jQuery e arriva agli aspetti più reconditi, passando per alcuni plugin e il testing, senza tralasciare AJAX. Il tutto con esempi di codice chiari e ben spiegati. Se non fosse già di oltre 600 pagine, gli si potrebbe chiedere solo un maggiore approfondimento su jQueryUI, su cui comunque si trovano altri manuali appositi.
Marcus Sjölin
Denna bok gör verkligen sitt, jag kan inte komma på någon bättre bok för att lära sig använda jQuery på riktigt. Jag tror också på att jQuery är det bästa som kan användas nu, och det kommer antagligen fortsättas att utvecklas även när ny teknik kommer.
Oh well, I have to familiarize myself with some new coding approaches! Not exactly novel material but I still pick at it like the turkey bones at Thanksgiving time. Lot's of good meat there!
Works well as a collection of (quite good) code examples and receipts, but nothing about the background technology. You should have some solid understanding of jQuery before you pick this one up.

With this book you easily understand what is possible to do with jquery. Now I see the cookbooks in a different light. Can be read from cover to cover without getting bored.
Michael Chase
Great book as a reference book. Some of the examples had what I thought were coding errors, but the author was quick to respond and explain why they were not.
This is a great book, stretching my mind. Although it's a JQuery book, but it added to my JS skills.

un ricco "ricettario" di soluzioni , con diversi livelli di approfondimento e effettività a seconda dell'autore
Good for a non-web guy like myself in getting to know how common things are done with jQuery.
