This book is the perfect introduction to JavaScript and AJAX for beginners. It starts off with a crash course in JavaScript, and then quickly moves on to how it works with the DOM, XMLHttpRequest, XML, CSS, and PHP, and has you building AJAX projects very soon. Each chapter gives lots of examples and finishes with a game that reinforces the concepts covered. I'm still working through the book, but learning by doing really works. I've learned so much as I code each example and discover why I'm doing each step. While it focuses on AJAX and doesn't cover all aspects of JavaScript, this book is a great primer on many of the scripting skills involved in building mashups and accessing web services, and leads nicely into Raymond Yee's Pro Web 2.0 Mashups: Remixing Data and Web Services.

This book was a little lite for me far as content. The title is what it is, for beginner only. I have learn how to create some basic effects with the no page refresh. I'm digging into the codes and see how it could work for a future client. Great start to learn Ajax basic put pair it with Bible (Ajax), then move into the more advance Ajax whether it be more books or online tutorials. You will find yourself creating all sorts of Ajax applications.

This is a good start for a beginner. It is well written. The book walks you step by step through the process of learning Ajax. It teaches you through a hands-on type method. Each chapter has a game for you to create using Ajax. The best way to learn is to do it and this book provides the instruction and projects.
