    This book is useless, it s the jquery docs with a bunch of useless jibber jabber.If you re considering reading this book don t, just read the jquery docs which have been kept up to date since this book was published.

    jQuery in Action is a great user s guide for jQuery and jQuery UI It explains things in detail, provides full reference material for the options and parameters, and covers the ground What it does not do is provide explanatory code examples and tutorials The labs are fine as far as they go, but they re not a substitute for actual coding as learning I think this book would be best for people who have already learned the basics of jQuery and thoroughly understand HTML and CSS and Javascript jQuery in Action is a great user s guide for jQuery and jQuery UI It explains things in detail, provides full reference material for the options and parameters, and covers the ground What it does not do is provide explanatory code examples and tutorials The labs are fine as far as they go, but they re not a substitute for actual coding as learning I think this book would be best for people who have already learned the basics of jQuery and thoroughly understand HTML and CSS and Javascript coding who needdetailed explanations of things Start with a tutorial, then use this book to dive deeper for specific things Also, if you haven t got the CSS background, get it first before trying to use this book, because there is very little help on the CSS side of the equation and very little example CSS

    An excellent guide to practical JQuery The book lacks on JQuery internals thus in Action , so best read with JQuery sources open Especially interesting chapters are 6.3 Manipulating JavaScript objects and collections if you learned about JQuery from tutorials, you probably don t know this stuff and 4.1 Understanding the browser event models won t give you much practical insight, but an interesting read.

    Read a little, code a little That was my experience I caught myself saying, Wow, I want to try that on almost every page This was a great book to learn jQuery Even though while I m writing this review, jQuery has come out with a new version, the book s content is still relevant.

    If you do any JavaScript programming, you should really check out jQuery And if you are going to seriously use jQuery, this book is invaluable If you do neither, move along, nothing to see here The documentation for jQuery, while rather good for an open source project, tends to be a bit scattered and some things can be hard to find Also, trying to use some advanced idioms from the online documentation can be hard to figure out Lastly, some of the reasons why jQuery was put together the w If you do any JavaScript programming, you should really check out jQuery And if you are going to seriously use jQuery, this book is invaluable If you do neither, move along, nothing to see here The documentation for jQuery, while rather good for an open source project, tends to be a bit scattered and some things can be hard to find Also, trying to use some advanced idioms from the online documentation can be hard to figure out Lastly, some of the reasons why jQuery was put together the way it was put together can be difficult to glean from the exiting documentation.This bookthan fills in these voids in the exiting doc Like almost every Manning Press book I ve read, this book is extremely well written This is not just a regurgitation of the library APIs It gives both context and background for each topic it tackles The examples are non trivial but easy to follow and understand while at the same time highlighting the point being made The prose itself is extremely easy to read no dry, dusty technical reading here.In short, if you are using or are planning on using jQuery in one of your projects, you owe it to yourself to pick this one up
