Mike Murach & Associates wrote:Today, jQuery is used in over 60% of the one million most-visited websites, and that makes it one of the technologies that every web developer should master. The problem is that jQuery is difficult to learn, even for those with programming experience. But now, this new edition of our jQuery book makes it as easy as possible for you to learn how to use jQuery to create the dynamic user interfaces, fast response times, and special effects that today’s users expect.
The book follows the Murach style - on the left pages there is text, on the right pages there are screen shots, code snippets, and short summaries of the text on the left. For experienced programmers it's tempting to skip the entire left pages and focus on the right pages only.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the publisher for reviewing it on behalf of CodeRanch.
I don't think the book was bad, but it's not my favorite Murach book or my favorite book on jQuery.
