This is more of a response to the previous remark. The code in question is found on the publishers site (listed on the back cover). Just search for "ajax". It's on the left hand side under "Downloads". For ease, I've included the link. [...]

The back of the book says the code is on the web. I looked and it wasn't there. I called MH and after 30 cell phone minutes got someone who said they would get back to me. I followed up with an email on 10/16/08 and still have not received a response.The book looked pretty good but I won't deal with a company that has that bad a Tech Support department.

Ajax is really so simple. If you can find a book like this that focuses on just ajax and of course xml, json and so on. It baby steps you all the way through. I've read some books before and came away wondering if the author knew ajax? Not the case here.
