"Overall an excellent book that clearly achieves everything that intends."
"I've enjoyed previous books by David Flanagan and decided to read jQuery Pocket Reference. I thought I would quickly skim through the chapters because I considered myself fairly proficient in jQuery. After the first chapter and Flanagan's explanations of jQuery's method, object, and function ('a' versus 'the'), I decided to read more in-depth. I'm glad, because this is one of the best books I've read in O'Reilly's Pocket Reference library. I was surprised to have found a one which has a perfect balance between API, examples, and explanation."

"As the title already shows this should be treated as a reference rather than a book you should read from start to finish. I read the first couple of chapters and it learned me a lot about the way JQuery works." Full Review >

"jQuery Pocket Reference provides a very useful coverage of jQuery and the functionality it provides. It presents the key concepts and how to work with jQuery. This makes it sound like a book for beginners to jQuery (which to some extent it is), but it is also excellent for people with much more experience, who want to review what they know, and also have a good reference.

"Like most O'Reilly cookbooks, this follows the same usual familiar pattern and serving the same purpose, of being a quick fire reference to how to do most things, without the author waffling on, that is commonly associated with most books that are thicker. If you have read a previous cookbook you would know that this book only serves those who have have the basic understanding of how this technology works, have worked with it before or have read a more comprehensive introduction to JQuery.
