Again, if you're a JavaScript lightweight and are just looking to get going quickly with jQuery UI--then this book could be super helpful for you.
R. Friesel Jr.
Ultimately the format is good; by the end of the book, the reader will have a comprehensive understanding of the subject.

Eric Sarrion's "jQuery UI" (published by O'Reilly) is a beginner-to-intermediate level overview of the jQuery UI library and its widgets. [1] Sarrion walks through these widgets one-by-one, chapter-by-chapter, offering a description for each, elaborating on the UI problem that each is designed to solve, and then detailing the API for each of these widgets. Each chapter is constructed after this pattern, illustrating how to setup your mark-up to best work with these widgets, how to initialize and interact with each widget type, and then showing some example implementations of varying degrees of sophistication.

If you are a JavaScript novice, or else are new to jQuery or its UI library, then Sarrion's book is a good for getting up and running fast. Each chapter is reasonably self-contained--e.g., if you just need to learn the ins and outs of the jQuery UI dialog(), then you can blow through chapter 4 in about 15 minutes and pick up enough to create a reasonably sophisticated modal dialog. Each chapter includes a series of tables that provide a quick reference for each method/widget's available options, methods, and events. Further, the example code at the end of each chapter is a valuable way to get some ideas about how to put each widget into action. [2] These explanations and examples are easier to digest than the documentation [3] and examples that are otherwise available in the jQueryUI.com demos.

That being said, if you *are* a web development professional with sophisticated JavaScript knowledge, you may find yourself grinding your teeth all over the place here. And that's not just because we're talking about an elementary introduction to a popular UI widget library with an almost brain-dead-simple API.

Taking the popular JQuery one step further, JQuery UI is a Javascript library that makes doing all the things I enjoy about making a Web site dead easy. Datepickers? Easy. Drag and Drop? Hardly any effort at all! Radio buttons? Not a problem. All of things it does have been done with varying success elsewhere, but (at least in my opinion) never quite as easily.

So when I had the opportunity to review Eric Sarrion's "JQuery UI" book from O'Reilly Media, I fell upon it with glee. And Mr. Sarrion does't disappoint. The book is somewhat slim at 244 print pages (I reviewed the electronic version) but it hits every part of the topic well. For each of the elements available in JQuery UI, he goes through and starts with the basics: You'll set up, for example, a tab set using exactly one line of Javascript code, along with the requisite HTML of course. Then you'll examine how tabs are formatted; Mr. Sarrion provides the Firebug-retrieved HTML that will help him (and of course the reader) add custom formatting to their existing code to, for example, change the background color of the tab header. After this the author discusses the actual code itself and various options that may be used to manage the element being discussed; tabs, for example, may be disabled or accompanied by an effect. Lastly, and where appropriate, the author will explore the more advanced aspects of the topic, like handling events and dynamically creating content based on user input and so on.

Mr. Sarrion's writing is concise, sober, and friendly, but never familiar. He doesn't dig into years of Javascript history, because it doesn't matter.

I purchased the Kindle iPad version. There is no source code or example files. What code is incorporated can spread across multiple pages. I returned it.

Its ok, not really in depth as i was hoping for. It was more of an overview of the functions that JQuery UI provides. It just shows the very basic and not much after that.

Wanted to implement a jQuery date picker for a Rails application. Got tired of reading non-sensical Google responses. Downloaded the book and had a solution in less than an hour. I hate books that try to be funny or give unneeded information. This book got straight to the point and for me to the SOLUTION. That's the bottom line.
