    Comments about oreilly Instant jQuery UI Starter:

    A very easy to understand introduction to jQuery UI with clear examples. Each example focuses on a particular feature or concept, making them easy to digest. The book title sets what you should expect from this book perfectly.

    Only reason the review was 4 instead of 5 stars, was the lack of a .zip/.tgz download file of the examples.
