What is so good about Jason's books are that they dont waste your time on 10 pages of what is a variable. It gives your a concise guide into the world of jQuery, arms you with the tools to continue educating yourself, and then moves on to using it.

As far as PHP and OOP goes, this book picks off where Jason's last book left off. It gives you an detailed and succinct explanation of PHP and its OO concepts. Then he guides your though these waters helping you navigate ambiguous concepts.

BTW, he also has some great tuts on netttus. You can get a taste for his teaching style there. :)

I can't think of a title, but I do think I wasted the money on this book.

If you've never heard of PHP or jQuery, then this book will serve you well, provided you want to type page after page of code, html & css to make the example work.

The book has one primary example (an event calendar) which you mess with from start to finish.

Two thirds into the book you finally get into integrating jQuery with PHP. That doesn't last long and the author jumps to an intro into RegEx.

There are thousands of free web sites with better material, like IBM's Developerworks, for instance.

Pass.

If the jQuery syntax and and mechanism looks foreign and confusing to you, and you need help coming up to speed on it, then this is the book for you, or at least one of them. I liked the book. Although I've written a lot of server-side ASP, PHP, ASP.NET, etc. and a little client side js, I needed to quickly understand jQuery. This books was hands on and led me through writing a real-world application. It shows how to build a site without AJAX, but then incorporate jQuery/AJAX for those that can handle it, to make the site more like an app. I thought it was a great start. I think anyone understanding the basics taught in this book, should easily be able to grasp the jQuery ui without a book. That is if they have some rudimentary skills.
