About the Author

Sporting a Masters in Information Technology and a lifetime of experience on the "web of hard knocks", Earle Castledine (Mr Speaker) holds an interest in everything to do with computers. A Senior Systems Analyst and JavaScript expert - he is equally happy in the muddy pits of .NET code as in the fluffy fields of client-side interaction development. Co-creator of the client-side opus TurnTubelis, Earle recognizes the Internet not as a lubricant for social change, but as a vehicle for unleashing frivolous ECMAScript gadgets and interesting time-wasting technologies.

Craig Sharkie's intricate knowledge of best-practice JavaScript is apparent in his writing. He began his jQuery journey as a Fine Arts graduate turned programmer, and has successfully worked with some of the Web's biggest names. Craig discovered JavaScript in 1995 and has been an evangelist for the "good parts" since then.

When you finish this book you will be able to write and understand jQuery.

Another primary complaint, and ultimately what made me give up on this book, is that the sample code provided is broken out into hundreds of subfolders.
Ryan P.
Easy to pick up and digest, very well written as with all the SitePoint books.

I originally purchased the 1st version of this book, and decided to buy the 2nd version for the updated content. I hardly ever buy a newer version of the same book, so that should tell you how good this book is. Before reading this book I knew nothing about jQuery and by the time I was finished I felt very comfortable with it, and I was able to make some pretty significant enhancements to various websites.

This book covers all the key topics, but the best part of this book is that it's written in a way which is easy to understand - it's not so technical and boring that you'll fall asleep after reading 2 pages. I wish more books were written like this! There are some good real-world examples in this book as well. Highly recommended!

I read the first edition twice. I've since read this newest edition once. There is so much info packed into this book, and so many real world examples, it's impossible to take everything in with only a single read.

I've also read the Missing Manual Javascript and jQuery title which I highly recommend, as well as a couple of jQuery/Wordpress books. Out of all these, despite the fact it is a Sitepoint book, I'd say this book is the most comprehensive of all the guides I've read. There were a couple of glitches in some examples, particularly a missing parameter in every use of the on() method, which was strange. But overall, great book.

A great book which will help you understand better web development with jQuery. Its a book for novice and intermediate developers. Don't stick to this you can learn a lot more about jQuery, but it's a great start to do so.

This is an excellent jQuery book with a ton of examples. I would highly suggest this to anyone looking to learn the language.

I love this book. It's written very clearly and concisely. While it's easy to read as a reference book, but it's not for beginners. You need some knowledge of javascript to start with, also need to know basic things about CSS.

I picked this book up at er.... a bricks and mortar bookstore and found myself chuckling repeatedly as I sipped my coffee and read. I found the book both entertaining and useful. Great samples that can be downloaded to see the features in action. I needed some jQuery skills immediately (couldn't even wait for Prime to deliver) and so I plunked down my bucks and took this book home with me. I think the book is great - readable, informative. I'd give it six stars if I could. And no, I don't know the author, but given that he clearly has a sense of humor that matches mine, I wouldn't mind meeting him.

This is was a good book that helps you get your start with jQuery and its programming aspect. Personally, I think it could have some better examples in trying to convey on how to do the programming language, otherwise an overall good book.
