You're going to get the hang of jQuery in less time than you might expect. And the knowledge will stick. Why? Because this isn't just a book. It's a book plus 1,500 free interactive online exercises. It's the exercises that are going to turn you into a real jQuery coder. Cognitive research shows that reading alone doesn't buy you much long-term retention. But if you read less and do more-if you read a short passage and then immediately put it into practice-everything changes. Washington University researchers say that being asked to retrieve information increases long-term retention by four hundred percent. Practice also makes learning more interesting. Ten minutes of reading followed by twenty minutes of practice keeps you awake and spurs you on. And it keeps you honest. If you only read, it's easy to kid yourself that you're learning more than you are. But when you're challenged to produce the goods, there's a moment of truth. You know that you know-or that you don't. If you find you're a little shaky on this point or that, you can review the material, then re-do the exercise. That's all it takes to master this book from beginning to end.

I found JavaScript books so frustrating, I decided to write my own. The authors of JavaScript books are probably some of the brightest people around. And maybe that's the problem. Maybe they don't know how to relate to those of us who may sometimes struggle to learn. My sister is a wonderful dancer. I dance like Bill Gates. She says, "C'mon, dancing is easy!" Yeah, for her, but not for Bill and me. She'll never teach me to dance until she understands that dancing isn't easy for me. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced coder doesn't matter. Plenty of veterans have told me, "I wish someone had used this approach to teach me [HTML, PHP, jQuery, C#, Ruby, Java, Python-fill in the blank]." Experienced or not, you'll probably like my book if you find other books too dense, too technical, and too unsympathetic to the learner's needs. What you'll especially like, I think, is that the book is just the tip of the iceberg. The larger part is the abundance of interactive exercises that encourage you to practice, practice, practice. You'll agree, I think, that without practice, a coding student might as well be reading a novel. One caveat: If you're an older programmer who has established ways of doing things, you may get bent out of shape by my insistence that you do some things that aren't habitual for you. If you think this might be a problem, please try the free sample of the book before you buy it. Then do a few of the interactive exercises. You'll soon know whether you can tolerate being pushed around by me. Here's what's different about my book: Testing showed that books and courses load up the reader with far too much information at a time. So I divide up the information into little chunks that won't overwhelm anyone. A book on coding doesn't have to be written in impenetrable legalese. It can actually be human-readable. My book is. Most people learn best through examples, so I provide plenty of them. Most important, before you have a chance to forget what you've read in the book, I ask you to fire up your desktop or laptop (not your mobile device) and head over to my website, where you run a set of interactive exercises, practicing everything you've learned-until you're sure you've mastered it. Readers tell me they often start the exercises thinking they know the material cold. and quickly find out they don't. The automated exercise manager keeps you at it until your overconfidence becomes real confidence-confidence that's based on your excellent performance. There are 1,750 exercises in all. They're all interactive, with an automated answer-checker that corrects your missteps and points you in the right direction when you stumble. And they're all free. Readers tell me the combination of book and interactive exercises is involving, fun, frustration-free, addictive, confidence-building, and...well, read the reviews. Become fluent in all the JavaScript fundamentals, with interactive practice. Display alert messages to the user Gather information through prompts Manipulate variables Build statements Do math Use operators Concatenate text Run routines based on conditions Compare values Work with arrays Run automated routines Display custom elements on the webpage Generate random numbers Manipulate decimals Round numbers Create loops Use functions Find the current date and time Measure time intervals Create a timer Respond to the user's actions Swap images Control colors on the webpage Change any element on the webpage Improvise new HTML markup on the fly Use the webpage DOM structure Insert comments Situate scripts effectively

Tyler Kord is chef-owner of the lauded No. 7 restaurant and No. 7 Sub shops in New York. He is also a fabulously neurotic man who directs his energy into careless ruminations on sandwich philosophy, love, self-loathing, pay phones, getting drunk in the shower, Tom Cruise, food ethics, and what it's like having the names of two different women tattooed on your body. Most of these ruminations also happen to be truly excellent recipes, like roast beef with crispy shallots and smoky French dressing, or a mind-blowing mayonnaise that tastes exactly like pho. [Tyler, you never did finish writing that fried squid recipe though. You know that, right? -Ed.] This is his first book. If you buy it, you can help make sure it won't be his last.

What makes a winner? Why do some succeed both in life and in business, and others fail? The 'winner effect' is a term used in biology to describe how an animal that has won a few fights against weak opponents is much more likely to win later bouts against stronger contenders. As Ian Robertson reveals, it applies to humans, too. Success changes the chemistry of the brain, making you more focused, smarter, more confident and more aggressive. And the more you win, the more you will go on to win. But the downside is that winning can become physically addictive. By understanding what the mental and physical changes are that take place in the brain of a 'winner', how they happen, and why they affect some people more than others, Robertson explains what makes a winner or a loser - and how we can use the answers to these questions to understand better the behaviour of our business colleagues, employees, family and friends.
