Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
With the arrival of Ajax, JavaScript has made a blazing comeback. Now the world's most practical, usable guide to JavaScript thoroughly covers Ajax -- not to mention XML and today's latest browsers, including Safari and Firefox.

The book: JavaScript and Ajax for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide, Sixth Edition. It offers everything VQS Guides always have: clear, friendly writing and easy access to step-by-step instructions, organized by task.

All the basics are here, thoroughly updated for contemporary best practices -- from writing JavaScript-friendly HTML to creating smarter rollovers with RegExp. There's a new chapter-length introduction to Ajax and XMLHttpRequest, followed by a practical introduction to Ajax toolkits, especially Yahoo!'s.

As always, this book captures the spirit of web scripting. It's about getting the job done quickly and well, with no more technical overhead than necessary. Bill Camarda, from the September 2006 Read Only
