1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title, not anything to do with April 26, 2011
Format:Digital|Verified Purchase
I want my money back.

This book is a light and weak reference on jQuery. It does not show in any way shape or form how to use it with postbacks and was a complete waste of money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite good July 5, 2010
I have learned some of the basics of jQuery reading this document. But I am not quite satisfied with the author, I think he is not using enough words to explain some of the more complex scenarios, like animation, and extending jQuery. He actually don't explain these things at all. I think he should have walked through some of the more complex code, in that way I would proberly have learned more. As for now I didn't get the point about those issues. You can see the sample app that the document is based on at [...] Also the author forgot to tell about some of the basic jQuery idiom, for example what does "fn" mean? What does "n" mean inside a function? And what does it mean when there is written (jQuery) at the end of a function? It's also a bit stupid that the sample app is written in VB when C# is the most videly understood. Well, about the last thing, that doesn't matter so much because the internal working of the app is not so important in understanding the jQuery issues.
