The second thing to rate about a book is whether it sits on the shelf after you have read it, or whether it is still useful. While not organized as a reference, I find myself frequently going back to the book. I can usually find what I am looking for in seconds, and it is often more helpful than the jQuery website.
Some things are explained in details, maybe little bit too much for beginners, but if you want to become tru jQuery developer, this book is pure gold. I have 10+ years of web experience and it's hard for me to say does some demos need more explanation but I think lab examples can help you understand the true power of jQuery code.
If you are beginner, jQuery starter of someone who uses finished jQuery examples, read this book. You'll be much smarter ;) IMHO it is must have book for every web developer.
Normally manning books are not available on kindle and you can get pdf or kindle version later from manning web site but this one was available and was very cheap! Now I know why it was so cheap!
Now, having said that:
The other reviews that claim that there are few examples must have been reading a different book as there are numerous examples and labs throughout the book.
My expectations for this book were exceeded. This is a truly comprehensive and authoritative reference on jQuery. The UI Lab is a unique contribution that sets the standard for other technical references. There is no better learning than from live code.
Each & every jQuery developer should own a copy of jQuery in Action.
