Live, Unmoderated Customer Reviews
Here is what our customers are saying about this product.
"I haven't gotten my book yet, so not good this."
"This is a great book - very readable. However, can I make a suggestion? When publishing, the corrections and typos it would be great if these could be downloaded (for ebook users) as annotations in the PDF, because you can't scribble notes in the margins!"
"Simply one of the best approaches for showing and explaining the potencial and usage of jQuery, no words for explaining the pleasure of reading it."
"This book has saved my life! I sspecially love the "excerpt" indications, to avoid getting lost. JQuery is easy to understand thanks to this book. It's a must-have for your development library and you truly go from Novice to Ninja!"
"I've have been having BIG problems with the 'Animated Navigation' beginning page 64. Has anyone got this to work? Does any have an example of what this is supposed to look like?
The book seems pretty good so far, but the coding is a little disjointed, and online examples of the code working would be a bonus."
"This book is an great source of information on jquery. I'm only a few chapters into it, but I'm already finding that my understanding of jquery has grown exponentially. Whether you're just starting with jquery or already have a good grasp of it, this book is an excellent choice.
"Unlike many books I've read on code, I don't find myself struggling through reading jquery: Novice to Ninja. Each chapter is well organized and easy to understand. I don't feel talked down to or left behind.
"The practical examples are great as well. Even just reading this book, I feel as if I'm gaining experience through practically using the code.
"I have already recommended this book to three people and will definitely be recommending it again!"
"I've only started chapter 4 and have already used two variations of solutions from the book for a client."
"Fabulous book. I'm not all the way through yet but this so far is one of the most helpful books I have."
"This is the book for you if you want to transform a web site with dynamic responses and customizations. I recommend it highly."
"The best thing is because the code reads so naturally, it is practically self documenting. What used to take hundreds of lines of code with days of debugging written in a few hours (or in the case of examples you learn from the book, minutes).."
"I have several jQuery books, but this is the one that truly helped me understand how everything works."
"I had high hopes for this book after reading the first chapter online. Unfortunately I was disappointed and found the book difficult to follow. The book does not introduce new concepts well, and it overuses the ! character to make points that are not exciting. For example this sentence:
"Now anyone programming for 1 month knows this. Yet other concepts or jQuery functions are introduced and then briefly explained or not explained at all as if somehow everyone just knows them.
"I really wanted to like this book. The more I read the more I came to realize I could have learned as much reading online articles."
