Review of new "Understanding Ajax" book.

Discussion in 'Javascript' started by Tony Lawrence, Aug 9, 2006.

  1. Probably a lot of you here are already old hands at Ajax, but I haven't
    started doing this yet. Part of the reason was that I really didn't
    understand where Ajax would be useful to my own site, and also that my
    experiences with early Javascript put me off on that a bit.

    "Understanding Ajax" by Joshua Eichorn helped me with both of those
    impediments. Complete review at

    That review (actually pretty superficial rather than "complete") states
    that it was written from a draft manuscript and the book itself will be
    released in late August 2006. It also has a link to Amazon; who state
    that the book has not been released and offer to ship it once it becomes
    available. As it is now early August, and the evidence is that the book
    in question has not yet been made available I have to wonder how it was
    possible that it "helped me with both of those impediments" (except
    perhaps in that regular employment with the book's publishers may have
    enabled the OP to hire someone else to do the work).

    The obvious chronological discrepancy suggests that this post was a
    marketing exercise (implying a book that could not be sold on its own
    merits).

    Richard.
