I received an e-mail last night from a gentleman named John Strickler, who is a professional development trainer responsible for setting up training class on various topics. He had some of the most positive things to say about my book to date. Some excerpts (posted with permission)
I wish all technical books had as much real content and as little filler. Most technical books have 100 pages of actual content and 500 pages of reformatted documentation.
I don’t want your head to swell, but usually there aren’t any published books that I can teach from, but yours had several key ingredients:
- Logical order of presentation. I could teach from your chapters in order
2.Example code, and plenty of it.
- Excellent presentation of the DOM, and the cross-browser issues, without bogging down in excruciating details (but *sufficient* detail, nonetheless).
