Even though Highchart is a well-documented product, “Learning Highcharts” ( is the very first complete guide about this topic.

Each chapter starts from a basic chart, and you can learn step-by-step how to build effective and professional-looking charts and info graphics. Some examples, like the fiat 500 speedometer, are simply awesome.
All examples are available at in very handy JSFiddle pages , so you can try on-line and modify them ea

Highcharts has reasonably good documentation; so, you don't need this book to jump in and start using it. I assume you are only considering this book because you prefer to be led step-by-step and to know all of the hows and whys instead of learning by trial and error. If so, this book will not disappoint.

What this book gives you that the help docs don't is a combination of explanation in words, followed by the relevant JavaScript, followed by the screen shot of the resulting chart. It follows th

As usual in the PacktPub books that I've reviewed - and there are several - it's a very practical book, with many examples which you can follow step by step and a lot of code that goes beyond the basic issues.

As many of the previous reviews have posted, Highcharts has very good document and examples on their web site. I purchased this book after reading the reviews.

I like the fact that it explains the how and why things are done when programming Highcharts.

I like that the book written step-by-step, this makes the reader really understand.
There are many graphic explanation in this book. It's easy understand for beginner.

I had used Google Chart Tools until this book was published. The book help me to using Highcahrts.
I think it is not satisfied for beginner only by the document of the Highcharts official website. Because there is not graphic illustration. It's a reference.
