Praise for other Head First books by the authors

“When arriving home after a 10-hour day at the office programming, who has the energy to plow through yet another new facet of emerging technology? If a developer is going to invest free time in self-driven career development, should it not be at least remotely enjoyable? Judging from the content of O’Reilly’s new release Head Rush Ajax, the answer is yes...Head Rush Ajax is a most enjoyable launchpad into the world of Ajax web applications, well worth the investment in time and money.”

Barry Hawkins, Slashdot.org

“By starting with simple concepts and examples, the book gently takes the reader from humble beginnings to (by the end of the book) where the reader should be comfortable creating Ajax-based websites... Probably the best web designer centric book on Ajax.”

Stefan Mischook, Killersites.com

“Using the irreverent style common of the Head First/Head Rush series of books, this book starts at the beginning and introduces you to all you need to know to be able to write the JavaScript that will both send requests to the server and update the page with the results when they are returned... One of the best things about this book (apart form the excellent explanations of how the code works) is that it also looks at security issues... If you learn Ajax from this book you are unlikely to forget much of what you learn.”

Stephen Chapman, JavaScript.About.com

Head Rush Ajax is the book if you want to cut through all the hype and learn how to make your web apps sparkled...your users will love you for it!”

Kristin Stromberg, Aguirre International

“If you know some HTML, a dollop of CSS, a little JavaScript, and a bit of PHP, but you’re mystified about what all the Ajax hype is about, this book is for you... You’ll have a blast learning Ajax with Head Rush Ajax. By the time you’ve reached the end of the book, all those web technologies that didn’t quite fit together in your head will all snap into place and you’ll have The Ajax Power! You’ll know the secrets behind some of the most popular web applications on the Internet. You’ll impress your friends and co-workers with you knowledge of how those interactive maps and web forms really work.”

Elisabeth Freeman, The Walt Disney Internet Group Co-Author, Head First Design Patterns and Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML

“If you thought Ajax was rocket science, this book is for you. Head Rush Ajax puts dynamic, compelling experiences within reach for every web developer.”

Jesse James Garrett, Adaptive Path

“This stuff is brain candy; I can’t get enough of it.”
