There is a lot of books about jQuery, what makes this book distinguish itself from the competition?

The other jQuery books focus on using the built-in featues of jQuery - selecting elements, traversing the DOM, manipulating elements and attributes, event handling, and ajax - and may have only one chapter or section on writing jQuery plugins. This book looks only at how to extend jQuery with plugins - from custom selectors, to collection plugins, function plugins, jQuery UI widgets, custom events, animation, and ajax processing. It assumes that you are familiar with jQuery and are looking to extend your usage of it.

In other words, this is your second jQuery book.

Your first should, of course, be jQuery in Action!
