quite useful. Depends which edition. The 3rd edition covers 'Ajax and
HTML5' so it sounds reasonably up to date, and cheaper than the 2nd
edition on Amazon. However there are no reviews.
Personally I'd save the $40 and consult a free online reference. But I
like online references better than the dead tree versions.
paper weight, or a shim for a wonky bit of furniture, etc. but it may
prove expensive compared to a cheaper book, or even a block of wood or
a rock. But you can't fold paper airplanes from the leaves of a rock,
so the book does have its advantages.
Note that I haven't actually used this book for any purpose, so you
may want to Google search for the opinions people who have. Some
reviews of the 1st and 2nd editions appear very positive.
