    Found this book more than an introduction to jQUERY than anythin

    Found this book more than an introduction to jQUERY than anything else. It does cover a wide range of content, but it does not seem to go into depth as much as I would’ve liked. I think this book would be a fine choice for someone who doesn’t have a great deal of knowledge or experience with jQuery. 
    Some reviewers have noted that there is a wealth of information about jQuery online and someone looking at a particular area of jQuery would probably be better served going online. The book strength lies in that it offers a wealth of information that the reader may not have thought about before. For me it was chapter 14 - ”Unit Testing with Qunit”.
    I would give this book between three stars and four stars because of the lack of depth on the subject matters. 
    I would recommend this book for someone who is looking for a good introduction into jQuery before they move on to all the online resources that are available.
