Upgrading to a New Edition of a Kindle Book

I bought the 2nd edition of JavaScript & jQuery Missing Manual as a Kindle book in May. Then in October, it came out with a new edition. 1) What are the differences between the 2nd and 3rd edition? Are they large enough that I should upgrade? 2) Do I need to pay full price again? It seems like a waste to have only had the previous edition for a few months before a new one was released.

  • Hi Amy,

    Thanks for your interest in the 3rd edition of JavaScript & jQuery Missing Manual. I have contacted an editor on this title concerning the differences between the two editions.

    Just looking at the cover of this book I'm seeing the 3rd edition covers jQuery UI. Once I have more information no this I will contact you.

  • Hi Amy,

    Here is what the editor had to say concerning your questions:

    "The 2nd edition of JavaScript & jQuery: TMM was released in 2011, and quite a bit has changed since then. The 2nd edition contains some plug-ins and techniques that have been superseded by newer and easier ways of doing things, especially with the introduction of jQuery UI."

    The editor of this book highly recommends upgrading to the 3rd edition because of the more up to date content it contains. I'll contact you directly to offer you a way to purchase the new edition that I think you will appreciate.
