I've been tasked to maintain some software that utilizes a good bit of jquery, which I knew nothing about. I just wanted a simple, concise, yet organized introduction to jquery, and oddly enough I could find nothing that fit my needs. I wasted about $30 on one book that was overkill and made my head spin. I didn't need to learn how to perform DOM gymnastics. I just needed to learn how to use jquery and what jquery could do. And I didn't want to have to piece together tutorials from 50 web sites. This book is perfect. Straight to the point. Exactly what I needed.

I've been working in JavaScript for years, so I'm familiar and comfortable with both JavaScript and the DOM. I had heard of jQuery and seen a few out of context examples, but just hadn't gotten around to learning anything more of it. This book was an excellent resource for jump-starting into jQuery. The first half covers the major features of jQuery, and the second half goes through basic but meaningful examples of usage. After reading the whole book and then going over the first half again, I was able to go back to one of my active pages and switch it over from direct DOM manipulation to using jQuery fairly quickly.

All in all, this book delivers on its promise. For an experienced developer who wants to start using jQuery, this book is an excellent resource.

Coverage of jQuery is complete yet terse. I wasn't looking for large examples, just a good overview of jQuery. My understanding went up with each section. Great coverage, great examples. If you have a decent understanding of javascript and the DOM, and just want more info on how to apply jQuery, I highly recommend the book.

I like condensed information so I can speed read and refer back when necessary. I haven't even read the latter half of the book with expanded information. I've browsed it a bit but the first half of the text was sufficient for my needs.

I'm not walking away from the book an expert. Just well informed. Exactly what I needed.

This is a great, short book about jQuery. Most of the core features are covered, in an easy to read fashion. Being an experienced developer already, I don't need long introductions to HTML, JavaScript or CSS. I just want to jump directly to learning what is new - and this books delivers that.

This short volume was like a Neo download in The Matrix. Gave me what I needed to get into the topic. It is, however, introductory by nature...which is good in its way (causes no confusion). There are similar 'free' guides on the web, like the W3C schools site, but this work puts everything right there in a tight format. I'm very glad I got this rather than a grande late!!

The formatting is good in its electronic form, and it was easy to read and navigate (lots of sections to natigate to). It is the only Kindle text I've ever read, though, so I can't really fully judge compared to other Kindle books.

I had to work on a project involving a lot of Jquery with very less time to go through the specifics
and that's when I came across this book. I picked up some books like Jquery in action etc which were very comprehensive but needed a lot of time which I did not have.
This book gives you an idea about jquery which is "To the point" and you can start using the tech in your
projects in a matter of hours.
The language used is very simple and pretty much it covers most of the portions of Jquery which I use during the normal
course of my work.
In all a very helpful book, if you have some prerequisite knowledge about DOM and some rudimentary Javascript concepts.
