Dear authors,

I have just finished the jQuery introductory course at one of the online learning platforms, and I enjoyed the simplicity of DOM traversing and, dare I say, the isolation from JS (my bad, I have never been very fond of this language). The only thing the online course was missing is real life examples of power of jQuery.
Question is: does your book have examples of real jQuery applications found "in the wild", or the book is more a sort of reference material ?

Thank you.

The book is certainly not a reference -- though people have said that they have used it as such. It also does not develop one real-world application from beginning to end. Rather the examples are meant to emphasize concepts that are needed in real-world applications. The closest thing to such an application in the book is the "Boot Closet" eCommerce example that's developed in the Ajax chapter.
