Praise for the First Edition

I found Natalie’s book very easy to follow and digest. I have had some prior experience with jQuery but I can see why this book would be very accessible for any non-programmer. The examples were clear and just detailed enough to be effective but not too extended. The step-by-step nature of the writing breaks the material up into bite-sized chunks and makes it easy to grasp. If you are looking for a book to learn jQuery by, you would not go wrong by choosing this book. It is complete, concise and conversational in tone. I recommend it without reservation.

Another merit of the book is the extensive use of HTML5. Though you can’t really tell this by looking at the front or back covers. If you have also been curious about what HTML5 can do for your website, the book can function as a de facto collection of examples.

The book’s promises are correct. The book covers everything the cover and introduction said it will tell you…After reading this book I learned a lot to put jQuery into practice on every day sites and jobs. This book is not written for those who want to develop their own jQuery plugins but instead its written for web designers who would like to know how to implement every day features on their site.
