I have just finished reading this book. I really liked the power of jQuery, how it really makes easy to manipulate the dom tree, write wrapper functions and writing the unobtrusive JavaScript.

I skipped some chapters 10 and 11, as they purely discuss about widgets. I will come back to them whenever I do need them.

I did run all the labs code provided. Due to my laziness, I missed the exercises. I read the book without practically writing any code, so pushing myself to do it now.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. In simplifying & explaining the jQuery, kudos to authors. Very well written book to the readers taste.

As in my current project we use rich faces, I want to harness its power when used with rich faces.
