Praise for the First Edition

The first thing you’ll notice about Natalie MacLees’ jQuery for Designers […], is her gentle yet confident voice. She assumes very little experience with coding, but is never condescending or “cute” like some beginning tech books. Each chapter of JFD takes the reader/student through a collection of jQuery scripts that accomplish various tasks that one uses in the “real world”. From tarting up links, through slideshows and tabs to an excellent chapter on forms, she writes as if she’s sitting next to the reader offering patient guidance as you discover the power of jQuery.

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!

Even for persons with little experience with web development the examples are easy to follow. Everything is explained in detail and all the code and plugins that are used in the book are available to the reader.
