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 updates very frequently. The book I read covered up to v1.3, and newer things (notably the Deferred object) aren't covered at all. Upon reading it some of the material definitely feels a little out of date.

That being said it's still a great book, and will give you a great understanding of the capabilities of jQuery.
