Can you recommend a book to learn about jQuery?

I’m new to JavaScript, and I specifically want to learn more about the AJAX functionality of jQuery. What’s your favorite book about jQuery, and was it written with beginners in mind?

Answer by Pedro
I’d highly recommend “Learning jQuery”. It covers the basics and builds upon that to give a thorough understanding of common jQuery tasks, while using lots of examples that are easy to understand (even for a beginner!).

Chapter 1: Getting Started – good intro to jQuery
Chapter 2: Selecting Elements
Chapter 3: Handling Events
Chapter 4: Styling and Animating
Chapter 5: Manipulating the DOM
Chapter 6: Sending Data with Ajax
Chapter 7: Using and developing plugins
Chapter 8: Using and developing plugins
Chapter 9-13: Advanced topics

Available from Amazon in Paperback and Kindle:
