This is the first Murach book I have read and it definitely has an interesting format. The left page is text and the right page is code, examples, and summary of key points. It took a couple of chapters to get used to the format, but once I did I found it to be very helpful. For some of the early chapters I was able to just skim the right page to pick up the concepts as the content was already familiar to me.
The book is broken down into four sections:
- Dom Scripting
So I did have a couple of issues, but overall a really good book. I think it works for beginners all the way to experienced web developers. The more you know you can “mine” the parts of the book that address your weak areas. I’d recommend the book and would buy other Murach books based on my experience with this one.
