Being familiar with XHTML, CSS, and DOM scripting, I thought I'd use this book to learn the next step: Creating JavaScripts that interacted with a server. Unfortunately the first chapter that specifically addresses AJAX, Chapter 8, has proven to be unusable.My recurring analogy for the problem is that of an experienced bicyclist who invites a new rider out for a spin. Almost always the experienced rider becomes tired of waiting for the new rider and so speeds off into the distance. So it is with too many technical books. In the case of technical books, the piece that is too often missing is a skilled technical editor who will enforce pacing and consistency of voice from the first chapter to the last.So it is with "Beginning JavaScript with DOM Scripting and Ajax". The book dumps too many concepts, and the learning tasks required to absorb those concepts, onto the reader in massive undifferentiated piles. For example, by the time the book reaches an AJAX code sample the reader is presumed to have successfully installed and validated the operation of a server (the book mentions XAMPP in passing, then moves on) and be ready and able to understand the operation of JS samples comprising multiple functional sections. (It doesn't help that the JS code samples don't put blank lines between functional sections and are completely un-commented.)I got as far as the book's second AJAX sample before I hit a wall. Regardless of whether I ran the example under XAMPP or from the book's online Web site, the example ran only on Internet Explorer, but not Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari. It's now up to me to break the book's examples apart and figure out why this is happening.
