This review is from: Beginning Google Maps API 3 (Expert's Voice in Web Development) (Kindle Edition)
This was the most useful of three books I bought about Google Maps API, and the only one to be up-to-date with version 3. (This saves a lot of time "translating", as there are a lot of differences between the two.) It's well organized and easy to follow, taking you step by step from displaying a simple map, to adding markers, to geocoding and beyond. It addressed all the main topics I needed to create a solid application. It's clearly and conversationally written, but the proofreading could have been better - there are semi-frequent minor errors in the text. Overall, if you're starting out with Google Maps API or need a refresher, I would highly recommend it. And for those who have been using version 2, there's also a helpful chapter on the major changes and how you need to update your code.
