Keep in mind that this is a book primarily for beginners to the field. You don't even have to know much HTML, which is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because it forces the book to explain most of the functionality that you will need to know, but a curse because it holds back from dealing with more advanced functions. Hardcore, experienced programmers are not the book's intended audience, so the gaps in its information are not as harmful as they would otherwise be. The subjects that it does cover are explained reasonably well and should be simple enough for most people to understand.
Unfortunately, there are a handful of places where the book assumes the reader to have more knowledge than a beginner would likely have. To an experienced programmer, these omissions would not be the slightest problem, but the book seems to be geared more towards novices. Basic programming concepts like loops and conditionals are mentioned, and briefly explained, but don't provide quite enough elaboration for someone who has never had any experience with such things before. This really only happens in a few isolated areas, but it could probably frustrate a beginner.
The good news was that the book has all the code on a website with the images of the examples available for download and that saved the day. Had I known, I would have NOT bought the book and just used the website as a tutorial.
What is missing, and you will need another book for this, is the detail needed to actually call the many object methods. Most are not covered by this book. Look at Dan Flanagan's pocket reference. So, only 4 stars instead of 5, and the hope that the author adds a guide to method parameters in the next edition!
