The book covers only tip of the iceberg on all the subjects it advertises to cover. The list is over 20 subjects, and most are really quick and dirty introductions, but nothing that can really be used. The book probably rules if you are a total newbie to all of the subjects and need a quick intro to things, but beyond that, nothing new here. Googling the titles serves at least as good.

Overall, this is a good overview book. I thought it would be more detailed regarding tying Ajax with server-side technologies. It's more for the beginner type who's curious about how Web 2.0 works. This book does a pretty good job of showing a high-level view of client-side javascript and CSS interaction to manipulate the DOM, but the examples are very basic in nature. I would recommend this book for the curious non-technical person. I would not recommend this book for the professional.
