What I also like is that, if the viewer of your pages doesn’t have the latest web browser software, the author has set up the code so that it “degrades gracefully”, meaning those people with older browser software will still see a basic site layout of your information and robots will still index your pages for search engine optimization.

The book’s promises are correct. The book covers everything the cover and introduction said it will tell you…After reading this book I learned a lot to put jQuery into practice on every day sites and jobs. This book is not written for those who want to develop their own jQuery plugins but instead its written for web designers who would like to know how to implement every day features on their site.
The author walks you through what you have to do to via a numbered step by step list. It’s pretty easy to follow and do right along with her. I learned a lot just by doing this….It was a good introduction to jQuery and will help web designers in their day-to-day activities. If you’re a designer and absolute beginner when it comes to jQuery, this book can help you.
…jQuery for Designers is a friendly, plainspoken tutorial on how to use some simple jQuery plugins – in short, little code-laden gadgets programmed by someone else and available for free – in a web page, and how to customize them to your liking. A great book for freelance web designers who are asked to take care of the programming as well as the graphics, even if you hate coding as much as I do. Keep this book by your side and you’ll be able to design slide shows, photo galleries, dropdown menus, navigation tags, you name it. All very easy to follow and non-scary. A worthwhile investment!
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.
Another merit of the book is the extensive use of HTML5. Though you can’t really tell this by looking at the front or back covers. If you have also been curious about what HTML5 can do for your website, the book can function as a de facto collection of examples.
