Praise for the First Edition

Great book for folks who are starting on jQUERY. The book is geared for designers but that shouldn’t discourage hard-core developers. Basic concepts are explained very clearly in a easy to understand language. Highly recommended!

If you’re a hardcore coder this is probably NOT the book for you (unless you’re like me and seeking a frame of reference). However, if you’re a DESIGNER, like it says, I think the book is perfect. It has just enough code to get you moving forward and some good how-to’s on shortcuts using plugins to get the effect you want…It’s a very practical book and sets out to help designers actually use jQuery as opposed to getting beyond what they need to get the job done in most cases.

I just finished reading your book, jQuery for Designers, and have to tell you how thankful I am to have found this book. I have ready many jQuery, JavaScript books and been left still not understanding what I was supposed to know when I was done. With your book I was able to follow along and actually understand what each step was doing. Thank you so much for writing such a great book!
