Praise for the First Edition

jQuery is very powerful and popular, but it can be a bit overwhelming to try to get started on your own. This book can help you get your feet wet. It’s a nice, friendly book to explain how to get started using jQuery. It is filled with lots of easy, useful examples. You’ll learn how simple it can be to add powerful functionality to your websites. And the really nice thing about this book is the author’s passion for accessibility. You know you will be learning how to use jQuery properly.

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.

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.
