jQuery is a popular JavaScript library that simplifies event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. Many companies are using jQuery including: Amazon, Google, Twitter, Bank of America, BBC, ESPN, CBS News, Digg, Reuters, IBM, Netflix, Dell, Oracle, Slashdot, Tecnorati, and Intuit.

Even casual web designers, who create web pages for fun, want to add the latest cool effects to their sites, and jQuery—the fast, flexible JavaScript library—is a tool of choice. Just as CSS separates "display" characteristics from the HTML structure, jQuery separates the "behavior" characteristics from the HTML structure. From visual effects, special controls, and Ajax made easy, the jQuery Visual QuickStart Guide will teach readers how to make the most of jQuery using the task-based, step-by-step, visual format they love. It's crammed with examples and there's a special section on widgets.
