Another excellent book from Kris Hadlock!

His writing style is comforting, covering complex topics such as the semantic web and ajax navigation with a childlike voice, which allows me to really access the information at hand instead of feeling self-conscious about the complexity of the topic--this makes it an actual joy to read.

Kris holds your hand as he takes you on a surprisingly fun journey through jQuery Mobile's features, making it accessible for the novice and the veteran.

Seeing the code next to screenshots of the outcome let me comprehend much greater than by just skimming the API and online examples as I had previously done many times.

I have been using jQuery Mobile for a year, and have already learned a few things on the first read of the book.

I knew these features existed but seeing them in action very much helped excite and inspire me on how I can use them in my projects.

I especially enjoyed the highlighting of code in reference sections to give even more focus on the specific elements of code that were key to the previous paragraphs.
It is quite an accessible book, easy to pick up and jump to the relevant sections, and also appropriate for the classroom. In addition, the book is visually stunning with crisp pictures and text.

This is an excellent book and I'm glad I picked it up.

First, I'll say this is by no means an exhaustive reference, advanced delve, or even a book that you can purchase alone and have all the information you need to develop useful mobile apps. It is just enough to get you started on the topic. Its only about 250 pages (or so) and I LOVE THAT!!

This book has several examples that can be used to get you started writing code yourself and plenty of color pictures. This is what I would call a Quick Start Guide. As a developer, I am so tired of buying 600-800 page books that cover topics in too much depth. By the time I get to page 400, where you know enough to do something, other projects have come up and you've lost your focus. I really like this style of book. I can get up and going on my own project in a few days instead of spending weeks reading about scenarios and options I'll never use (or just skipping entire chapters).

The only thing this book needs is a follow up book. One that skips the basics covered here and talks more about UI best practices and processing data from web services.

Kris Hadlock has done an excellent job with this book and I hope he sticks to this same style in future books.

This isn't a bad book however much of it can be learned by just reading the jquerymobile.com website. In fact I'd say 80%. Sometimes tho having a simple tome to read isn't bad and I liked the style and most of the pages move along pretty fast. If your looking for granularity look elsewhere... for a nice all-one-place overview then this may be a good choice.
