The other day I picked up a copy of Ajax in Practice, by Dave Crane and several others.
I don’t know why I waited this long. His Ajax in Action is one of my all-time favorite technical books. I also have a copy of Prototype & Scriptaculous in Action, though I’ve only read a few sections of it. I think the fact I haven’t made as much progress as I would have liked in P&SiA is what made me hesitate about Ajax in Practice.
Dave Crane rocks. If I ever manage to write a technical book myself, I only hope to come anywhere near his level of excellence.
(Of course, Scott Davis isn’t bad, either. :))
