As I write this, on March 13 2013, PhoneGap is up to version 2.5.

The book is using phonegap 1.0.

While the book isn't bad and the content may still be relevant, you will have to adapt a lot of what is written to the new version.

Format: Paperback
Just finished reading and practicing the "20 Recipes for Programming PhoneGap" with mixed feelings: by one hand, I learned many things [ I am a beginner in this kind of programming], and by the other hand I accumulated huge amounts of frustration, because the explanations were pretty laconic, non intuitive, and some examples didn't work to me.

For the good things, I would say that each recipe got me learn jQueryMobile and the PhoneGap API. The examples are interesting and useful for the future hybrid apps I may write sometime. I liked that, when explaining the "Accessing the Camera and Photo Album", the author realized that in the simulator we cannot use the camera [seems to be a bug introduced with Android 2.2], and explained how to use the photo library instead. This was helpful especially for the next chapter, which demonstrated how these images could be sent to a remote server. I would only add [for other readers] that, in order to get the pictures in the simulator, one may use the simulator's web browser app to download images from internet.

Unfortunately, not all things were so good:
- From the very beginning it was not obvious that these examples will work only packaged as PhoneGap applications, and they will not work in a Webkit browser. I had this problem because I wanted to use the JavaScript debuggers provided by Safari and Chrome to see how the code worked. [Some examples can actually run in desktop browser after installing the Ripple Emulator plug-in for Google Chrome].
- The very interesting recipe "Saving data to a Remote Server" didn't work, [at least with author's server].

The book is really thin but each page is filed with one useful example after another. A good starting point for someone who is looking to get up and running right away.
