I recently got the opportunity to review the book Instant jQuery 2.0 Table Manipulation How-to by Charlie Griefer. Being a fan and heavy user of jQuery, I happily accepted the offer.
Instant jQuery 2.0 Table Manipulation is a short (around 40 pages of real content) and concise book focusing on a single topic: manipulation of the HTML <table> element using jQuery. It's written in a "recipe style" showing you how to implement the following:
Each recipe follows the same pattern: you see how to set up the required HTML and jQuery code followed by a step by step explanation of that code. The book does not introduce jQuery so some working knowledge with jQuery is assumed. However, the code is explained well, so it's easy to follow.
Not so good stuff
While the technical content of the book is good, I am not sure if a topic like this warrants an entire book (even though it's so short). For each of the topics discussed you can easily find blogs and articles for free on the Internet. That said, if you do happen to need one of the implementations described in this book and don't want to spend too much time Googling, the $6.79 that this book costs may be money well spent. Speaking of the price: you probably want to get his book from the Packt site as Amazon.com charges $9.86 for the Kindle version and even $17.99 (!!) for the paperback version.
Final score: 4 out of 5

When you post a comment, you have to provide your name and the comment. Your e-mail address is optional and you only need to provide it if you want me to contact you. It will not be displayed along with your comment. I got sick and tired of the comment spam I was receiving, so I have protected this page with a simple calculation exercise.

Unfortunately, something went wrong and your message or comments have not been submitted successfully.
There's a fair chance things broke down because you tried to post something that looks like HTML. Things that look like HTML include (X)HTML, obviously, XML, ASP.NET markup and c# generics syntax as all of them use the < and > characters.
If that's the case, try altering your message and remove anything that looks like an angled bracket. You can replace them with [ and ] for example so you can still make it look like HTML to some extend.
If, on the other hand, you were trying to spam this web site, I am pretty glad I caught you in the act and stopped you from doing so ;-)
