Hello Zak and Mary!

I have no experience with JavaScript. Can this book be useful for me?

Actually, I plan to work with web development soon, but right now I'm Delphi developer.

Congrats on the book!

Hi Cleo

Yes, I think this book is excellent for people with no JavaScript experience! We start from that premise, so the first section presents all the very basics - we don't assume any prior knowledge of JavaScript. That, along with example code that's as real world as we can make it, lots of hands-on exercises, and lots of code download, makes it a great book for beginners - in my humble opinion, of course

Hi Cleo

Yes, I think our book is excellent for people who have no JavaScript experience. It's written from that premise - the first section presumes no previous knowledge of JavaScript, and presents the basics that you need to know. The second section does the same for jQuery, and the final section builds on the first two sections. That, in addition to code examples that are as real-world as we can make them, lots of hands-on exercises, and lots of code examples in the book download, make this book a great one for beginners - in my humble opinion, that is...

Thank you so much, Mary! Your analysis instigated me to want to read the book and put my hands in the dough.
I hope to win a copy!

I hope so, too, Cleo - and sorry for the double post! I thought the first one disappeared so re-did it - but then there they both are...
