    Valuable for both beginning and experienced developers

    I'm an experienced web developer, and though this book is clearly meant to be accessible for very inexperienced people as well, I found it a clear and useful introduction to the Google Maps API3.

    Some experienced reviewers have grumbled that the book is basic, but I see it differently. If Svennerberg had custom-written a book for me taking into account exactly what I already do and don't know, it would have been much thinner. But I don't expect custom-written books. I just skipped the parts that I already knew, and I very much appreciated the clear descriptions and simple examples for the parts that were new to me.

    Could an experienced developer figure all this out by crawling the API documentation and posting questions to Stack Overflow? Obviously. But this book cost me less than $20. I don't know what your time's worth to you, but there's no question that by pulling all the basics together in a tidy, readable format with working examples, this book saved far, far more than $20 of my time.
