Ajax in Practice: Best practices with Prototype and Scriptaculous

Hello,

I've recently purchased Ajax in Action and I really liked it.

How does Ajax in Practice differ from Ajax in Action?
From what I read in amazon.com, the book's focus is on Prototype and Scriptaculous... And some design patterns, best practices and flow control using these libraries. Am I right?

Oops...

I got everything wrong.
I thought Prototype and Scriptaculous were discussed in Ajax in Practice, but there's actually a book just for them... http://manning.com/crane3/

Correct! The book promo for that book was 2 weeks ago.

In Ajax in Practice, a fair number of libraries are surveyed and used, inlcuding Prototype, jQuery, Dojo, DWR and others. But not Scriptaculous.
