Praise for the First Edition

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.

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.

…If you’re a total beginner or somebody who’e been using jQuery plug ins but have trouble making them work and you have no clue how they work you will enjoy this book. The author thoughtfully crafted a book that’s easy for a designer to understand the subject, starting with the basics of Javascript and from then on she covers plug ins that you’ll probably use at some point, such as lightbox, slideshow, form-enhancer. The writing style is clear and friendly and I found the examples easy to follow.
