p>The review says:
p>I’m glad they emphasise use of real examples, because we can debate ad infinitum about whether everything in the book is a pattern or not, but the more important thing is that the examples are real, concrete, and as accessible as typing a URL into your browser.
Thankfully, Ajax Design Patterns is one of the most organised books on any programming subject. It’s a massive book, but you won’t get lost as the chapters are sensibly divided up and the sound layout means there’s nothing whatsoever to fear.
p>I’ve had a lot to say about presentation of patterns in the past The fairly unusual presentation of the patterns is the reason it’s not an O’Reilly animal book, and it’s good to see it helped.
