Praise for the First Edition

This book has successfully taken the confusion and mystery out of what jQuery is all about and helped me to finally get a handle on javascript/jQuery.

This book is great for jQuery beginners, esp. if the only thing you know is html/css and are looking for some “recipes” for jQuery to plugin to your site. Overall the book is organized well, with “lab” type hands-on exercises that will help the reader understand the concepts. It is a book that is definitely geared towards designers, and not developers who might like to see more information on the Domain Object Model and the underpinnings of jQuery.

Natalie should be congratulated for making a potentially impenetrable and dry subject accessible to a novice like me. The author’s passion for the subject is clear, and despite their expertise the content is digestible without going either too slow or fast. Coders are often much better at making things work “under the hood” than making sites visually sparkle. This book provides an important bridge between code and cosmetics.
