There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The information contained inside isn't bad per se, but the organization is at times less than straightforward and made more so by the lack of simple publishing standards mentioned above.
The PDF version may be preferable as it should at least be search-able to make up for the structural oversights of the publisher. Hopefully a second edition will include more material and correct these problems, but until then, I couldn't recommend it as a reference.
That being said, even the author thinks that there was a lot left out of this book, and is putting it into version 2.
One thing that's really missing is an index. That alone would have given it an extra star.
Interesting as this book is only half the number of pages 112 instead of 276 - I would think the binder would have noticed the cover did not fit right
For example, the description of the very important 'this' keyword is just wrong. The book says that 'this' "represents the current scope", which is not true. The 'this' keyword actually refers to the object on which a method is executing or the global object. A common small error is for the author to write "syntax" when he means "semantics". An error by omission is that the reason for needing all the 'bind' stuff is never even discussed (the reason being that MooTools uses a custom event dispatch system rather than assigning functions directly to event properties). There are plenty more.

There is no index (ok, there is an extensive contents section); and the footer on every page tell you the title of the book (conventional but useless) the publisher (as if I care) and the page number. Where is the chapter number & title so I can quickly flick through and find the rough area for what I'm looking for? I found this a frustrating book to navigate.
I've awarded 3 stars but sadly for this book one of those was granted because of the subject matter. I love MooTools but I expect/hope there are better organised books about.
