You won't find oversimplifications here: the authors don't skimp on details as they describe what goes into Ajax applications and show you how to build your own. The book concludes with a large and lovely guide through the process of developing a realistic Ajax-based email client similar to Gmail.
This is a nice pragmatic guide to coming up to speed with what's happening in interactive Web application development. You won't go wrong with this book.
