As that link to the other post points out, I wrote a bunch of articles on Ajax on my blog explaining it. That someone that wrote a book on it is me (the moderator here of this forum.) I am one of the co-authors of "Ajax In Action".

I see Ajax as a way to improve the user's experience when they visit our Web sites. Ajax solves problems and it can also creates problems and people that are not great with JavaScript may have a tougher time starting out with it. There are some great frameworks out there that allow you not not write a single line of JavaScript too.

An article people like is: http://developer.apple.com/internet/webcontent/xmlhttpreq.html , which shows the basic idea behind the implementation.

You can also checkout sites like http://www.Ajaxian.com to see how people are using Ajax.

Eric
