I am a Java Programmer how easy it is to get hang of Dojo with the help of your book as I have never worked with it before? Is Your book for beginers too? Can it be referred to the students learnng Ajax and Dojo?

I think Dojo's learning curve isn't *much* higher than any other framework... getting it on a page and getting some basics things done is fairly well-documented and isn't tough at all (Dojo is available via CDN, so you don't even necessarily need to download it).

I think the problem with Dojo, if you can even call it that, is that it's so powerful and expansive that getting your head around all it can do can be a challenge. My book can probably help in that regard, sure. My book however does assume that you aren't a JavaScript beginner, so that would definitely be a problem if you were new to client-side development in general. If you're new simply to Dojo though, I think it would be fine.
