Rating the book as 4 star, Ian Elliot says that:
Author: Brad Dayley
Publisher: Addison-Wesley (2013)
Ian's conclusion is:
"Overall I liked this book. There are enough helpful boxouts pointing out things you might not have realized to make it useful to the intermediate jQuery programmer as well as beginner. It isn't going to replace a big book of words, but it is handy to have around."
Author: Jon Duckett
Ian Elliot described this as
" a very unusual book and its approach will only suit the complete beginner with a limited technical background. This is not a book for programmers and certainly not for experts. It makes things look simple using a combination of large clear print and lots of pictures."
Ian's conclusion is that the book doesn't do anything radical and it certainly doesn't attempt to make the reader into a computer scientist. This is about learning programming to get a very particular job done. Having said this, if the reader has any aptitude for programming this book might help them discover it and then graduate to something more, and so it still comes highly recommended to the right reader.
