Great explanations, poor editing
on January 22, 2009
As an experienced but not always savvy enough JS and CSS developer, I very much appreciated that this book not only shows you how to use Prototype and script.aculo.us, but also gives you a lot of background about the difference in core JS, HTML and CSS among the browsers and how Prototype overcomes those differences.
Overall I enjoyed the book quite a bit, however: the technical editing is really, really poor, so I have to reduce my rating a couple of points. I found tens of errors, from typos to technical errors in the sample code.
