You never know what you might get  when an author decides to update a book. I've seen this done well and I've also more commonly seen this done poorly. However, the update to the Learning jQuery book is exceptional. If you already own the first edition, rest assured the second edition is worth the price of admission.
The book's highlights are:
- Its gentle yet detailed introduction to jQuery and the concepts surrounding jQuery development
- The writing skills of the authors! These geeks can code and write.
- The ground that is covered pertaining to jQuery development is exceptional due mostly to the carefully chosen code examples and several case study chapters (7, 8, 9).
- Single code concepts that grow in order to introduce new concepts. As opposed to several segregated code examples for each concept.
- The authors' broad vocabulary, example, circuitous. Which I had to look up.
- Nice (new) overview of event delegation
- Plugin development has its own chapter in this new version. Great improvement.
If you don't currently own a jQuery book (or even if you do), then this book is the clear choice for learning jQuery.

The authors write in a way that helped my brain absorb the information in an almost effortless manner. Their constant attention to writing good clean code is nice. And the sections on Forms, Tables and the UI Themeroller more than justify the price of the book on their own.
