Praise for the First Edition
This is an excellent work, a worthy successor to others in Manning’s “In Action” series. It is highly readable and chock-full of working code. The Lab pages are a marvelous way to explore the library, which should become an important part of every web developer’s arsenal. Five stars all ‘round!

I highly recommend the book for learning the fundamentals of jQuery and then serving as a good reference book as you leverage the power of jQuery more and more in your daily development.

For those new to jQuery, this book is a good primer that covers a range of common uses of the framework.... The examples throughout the book are relevant, and make the point effectively.The code snippets are easily distinguishable from the rest of the text, and the text is clear and easy to follow.

It works and makes for a very readable book that you can just breeze through very quickly and pick up and retain a lot of information.

Thanks to the authors Bear Bibeault and Yehuda Katz and their exemplary style, this compre- hensive book, or operating manual as it might be called, can be taken in a front-to-back approach to learn from scratch, or as a reference to those already dabbling in jQuery and needing verifica- tion of best practices.
