Currently, there are no books that directly teach the combination of PHP and jQuery. This combination is pretty popular, and a book that specifically provides information about combining these two languages will definitely appeal to a large number of today's web professionals. This book assumes a working knowledge of PHP, but it starts from scratch with jQuery, making it a good buy for PHP developers who want to add jQuery functionality to their websites.
