jQuery 2.0 Development Cookbook

Though I have reviewed many software and hardware tools in the past this will be my first book review:

jQuery 2.0 Development Cookbook

jQuery 2.0 Development Cookbook

jQuery 2.0 Development Cookbook

First I must say really liked the examples that are used throughout the book. They are well documented and intended with an easy to follow style for learning jQuery.

The first few chapters provide a great introduction to jQuery. Concepts such as traversing the Document Object Model and handling basic DOM events such as click and hover are expertly explained. The later chapters of the book cover sections on jQuery UI, jQuery Mobile and making jQuery Plugins by extending the platform.

Chapter 8 is a great guide to on extending jQuery to create plugins. One of which I have started on my own site as a jQuery plugin toolkit for small effects.

For my job I use a lot of dialog overlays and progress bars that utilize jQuery UI and found the sections describing this (Ch 9) to be very useful.

All in all I have to say this is one the best books I have read for jQuery development and recommend this to new users and those who may have come from other JavaScript libraries (YUI, Sencha, Dojo, Prototype) to ramp up their jQuery skills.
