"Head First jQuery does an excellent job in laying the foundation for how interactive Web pages work and why jQuery should play an important part in your development toolkit....=If you havent yet stepped into the jQuery waters, or if you feel like youre missing a lot of the foundation for what youre doing, this book will put you on the right track."

"This is 500, concise, tightly paced, easy to follow pages of goodness. Highly recommended."

"The book is well-suited to beginner-intermediates hoping to learn jQuery. It is easy to read, and the more unconventional approach will appeal to some people much more so than the typical dryly written programming book. The exercises really help a lot and are well-conceived. "

"One of the first things that stands out about this book (and the Head First series in general) is the bright, colorful, and plentiful images used to help illustrate concepts and how jQuery works. They also provide illustrations on how to walk through the specific problem at hand, which is often nice to see in a visual format...even if it is just notes on a pad of paper." Full Review >

"Another from the head-first series, this book presents in a more graphical-than-normal explanation of JQuery, from novice-to-intermediate, filled with a lot of examples. Many people would tend to enjoy reading books this way, and I can appreciate that for some this is the best way to learn a new language, but going on from previous titles such as Head First Java, I still haven't enjoyed the structure as much."

"It might sound strange, but first thing I am grateful to Ryan and Ronan is mentioning TextWrangler in the beginning of the book. This way I got familiar with very simple, useful, and free (free as in free beer) editor for Mac OS :)" Full Review >
