If you are looking for a book that's easy to read and is a great book then this is the book for you.
To master a framework is hard work. To discover the tricks to get our goals in an easier way takes a long time. Our path began studying the jQuery Mobile site docs, excellent and huge. Then we went to our first book on the theme to read and mentally listen the mastermind behind it. As the subject is wide we will travel a long way on books to really be a jQuery Mobile Master. It is not a short way!
This book is packed with hardly won advices. The author guides us on setting up an environment and tools we need to just open a new file; XAAMP, jQuery, Aptana, CDNs. We continue with jQuery ThemeRoller and Screenfly.
You will remember your HTML5 Responsive Web Design, media queries, Modernizr, geolocation and web storage, WURFL and RESS; my God do I really need to learn all of them?
All of this was an intro, beginning on chapter four and an 80-page tour we start to use jQuery Mobile framework on a hands-on and carefully crafted Project, yes a project, not just short code examples. Reading is easy, typing and testing ad infinitum is what gives us power, happiness and glory.
The craft is carefully dosed going form opening a new page to geolocation and dealing with PHP and WebSQL. The author is very optimistic thinking that we apprentices after 8 chapters are ready to bite a hard ball and go straight on node.js
To master jQuery Mobile you really need more than this book and many more projects. But yes, this is a good book!
