I am a backend programmer picking up front-end, and this book has been the greatest help. It wastes no words on stuff that's too fundamental, but it covers everything a front-end n00b needs to know. With a powerful realworld example, it gave me many "ah-ha!" moments. By the time I get to the end, I feel all the dots has been connected for me, and the whole front-end world is now crystal clear.This time I just flipped through. I will read the book again during the holidays while implementing the examples, and I am sure I will get more out of it.Highly recommend, especially if you work on JS sdks, libs, or anything platform-ie.

This book covers everything it states under its description. If you are a developer or even a network administrator and need to understand the communication of web app networking and protocol security (high-level) this book is excellent. The working photo store example(s) carried on throughout the book are easily to follow and implement for a hands-on learning experience. I didn't find any flaws in this book based on how it is advertised. And based on the real-world experience from these two blokes who are practically thought leaders on the subject, you could do a lot worse than to shell out a few clams for this great book on integrating 3rd party javascript.

Fantastic book! I was tasked with creating a javascript widget app for our partners and was able to do it with the help of this book.It goes into 2 implementations, the pure javascript route and using an iframe. If you ever wondered how javascript widgets like a twitter feed work by dropping in a script onto your site, this is the book to use.
