"Professional Ajax" shoots from the hip. Go ahead, scour the web. Find every forum, article, or review about Ajax that allows users to post comments. You'll find a common complaint: "We've been doing that for years, we don't need a fancy new name." These guys understand this comment. They know what they're doing here, and they've got the battle scars to prove it. Call it what you want: Ajax, Web 2.0, or just business as usual, these authors know how to get the job done.

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.
