Format: Paperback
This book was a great way to get started using OpenLayers. It has chapters that cover how to set up a basic map using Google, Yahoo, Bing, or OpenStreetMap, how to add controls and use layers, and would be useful even for someone who does not know javascript, html, or css.

EDIT: My initial review criticized this book's lack of useful information for making markers, etc, but really this was a misunderstanding of OpenLayers on my part. This book has in-depth information about how to build "features" on vector layers, which are many times more powerful than "markers". There is also lots of information and reference material in this book about events and event listeners, which is sometimes hard to find in the online documentation.

I have increased my rating of this book to 5 stars because of how useful it has been to me. I started building a map using this book when I knew nothing about OpenLayers, and have advanced to making custom controls, complex events, and advanced styling based on the information in this book!

80% of a book is continuously repeatings of very simple things like "{key:value} - this is a param object of a class that contains a key and a value".
The book can be compressed to 10-15 pages tutorial.
Also there is lot of copy&pasted text from OpenLayers API.
If you known JS, then just google for a good tutorial.

I wanted to jump start my knowledge of OpenLayers so I could begin spec'ing out new products using OpenLayers. I feel this book has given me some good insights to what I can do with OpenLayers.
