Bear Bibeault has been working in the area of web applications since the mid- 90s, getting started with beta versions of JSP and Servlets. He is a senior moderator at the popular JavaRanch site, and has contributed articles to that site's JavaRanch Journal. He also co-authored two other Manning books: Ajax in Practice and Prototype and Scriptaculous in Action. Bear works and resides in Austin, TX. Yehuda Katz contributes actively to jQuery, heading up the plugin development team. He also runs Visual jQuery, a dynamic, browsable version of the jQuery API, used heavily by new users of the library and core developers alike. Born in Minnesota and raised in New York, he now lives in sunny Santa Barbara, CA, where he works for Procore Technologies.
I haven't read too many books solely on Ajax frameworks but I cannot recommend this one enough. You'll be up and running with jQuery faster than you can imagine.
It's very fast paced, and a relatively slim volume, jam-packed with info. Highly recommended.
I recommend pairing it with jQuery Cookbook (by the jQuery Community Experts) because they trace the same ideas from slightly different angles and you'll covers all the bases.
I only wish it had a little more meat to it. I think it's just a matter of a few things I'd hoped to find not being there though. Definitely suggest this book if you're serious about messing with jQuery in a real project.
