    Comments about oreilly PhoneGap 3.x Mobile Application Development HOTSHOT:

    It's a book well-written. The only problem is the use of the YASMF-Next library, that is develop by the author. It's a good library but it's not well documented (except for the book) and for what I can see in the GitHub it's only contributor it's the author.

    If you can pass that the examples are very helpful, the structure of the book is concise and you can always use another library.

      Instead of giving text-only explanation, the book gives explanation through code by giving 12 exciting PhoneGap projects. The book is good for those who like to learn by 'show me the code'. If you are experienced mobile developer and want to learn some part of the book by example, you are good with the book then.
