Updated to add new winner since one of the original winners (Gregg Bolinger) already has a copy of the book and requested we give his win to the next person in the list.

Congrats to the winners. We hope that you'll find the book useful!

On behalf of Yehuda and myself, I want to thank everyone who participated in the book promo this week, it was a lot of fun!

And not to be mushy or anything, I'd like to quote a section from the Acknowledgement section of the book that pertains to the people on this site that deserve special thanks.
For this, my third published tome, the cast of characters I�d like to thank has a
long list of �usual suspects,� including, once again, the membership and staff at
javaranch.com. Without my involvement in JavaRanch, I�d never have gotten the
opportunity to start writing in the first place, and so I sincerely thank Paul
Wheaton and Kathy Sierra for starting the whole thing, as well as fellow staffers
who gave me encouragement and support, including (but probably not limited
to): Eric Pascarello, Ben Souther, Ernest Friedman Hill, Mark Herschberg, and
Max Habbibi.
Thanks go out to Valentin Crettaz�not only for serving as technical editor but
also for introducing me to jQuery in the first place�and to my coworker Daniel
Hedrick who volunteered the PHP examples for the latter part of the book.


Gregg Bolinger was not forgotten -- as one of the reviewers, along with Eric, whose input was nothing short of invaluable, he was also sincerely thanked in another section of the Acknowledgements.

I am just wondering where you are finding all this time to write and learn this stuff.

LOL. After working on three in a row, I'm thinking that it's time to take a little break. But I get restless easily, so who knows?

Congrats guys,

It was great hanging out this week and helping to answer questions. Who knows, maybe I'll stick around and post from time to time

FYI: jQuery just announced jQuery 1.2.2, which has a bunch of interesting new features. Check it out at jQuery 1.2.2: Second Birthday Present
