Worth it if you're not a beginner of JS. And have a couple weeks to spend onto it.
Not in ES6.
For the others:
This book deserves 5 stars for the consistency of the method and the clear explanations; it also deserves 2 for the nightmarish demos it has.
Clear and consistent. A quality very difficult to find. The title is readable although could use a bit of shrinking, literally some pages are just random talk. Every single method is detailed and often demonstrated. Totally worth it.
If you're a beginner you might enjoy the easy and clear explanations but the code is going to give you a migraine. The demos are just unholy.
Separation of concerns is not taken into account so everything is stuffed into the HTML. (I know it's not a book on web design but the basics...), this has the insult to injury of deactivating whatever linter you're using.
Functions that are used later are placed before others that are used earlier (I know it doesn't matter to JS but it's awful style). The code is in small prints and is difficult to follow clearly. And lastly the code is in one page, and the comment on the opposite which works very well for every library that doesn't make a big deal of chaining dozens of operations on a single line as jquery does.
Read it but don't be overwhelmed by the awful code in the demos as anybody who codes like that professionally is going to get a brick thrown at.
The downloadable labs are an excellent idea well implemented and re-enforce the books material in a very elegant way - this makes the book itself head and shoulders above other jQuery introductions.
I have the first edition - based on the 2006/2007 jQuery 1.2.1 - outdated but still a pretty damn good introduction.
The guys did a good job and should be congratulated.
