"Hate JavaScript? Try jQuery..." - by jmp on 05-NOV-2012

The Head First guys did an excellent job on this book. It starts off with the absolute basics for jQuery and then builds upon each chapter with more information ingraining it in your head the further you go along.  It is a quick read even at 400-ish pages because of all of the pictures, quizzes and examples.  I highly recommend this for anyone who is starting out with jQuery and want to get better or anyone who hates JavaScript.

The font is too light and too small to read on an iPad. If your using an iPad to read I would not recommend this book.
