After a year of using jQuery, I have an upcoming project that requires me to go back to MooTools. A lot of my MooTools knowledge was rather rusty, but a couple of weeks ago the nice people at Packt published a new book called MooTools 1.2 Beginner’s Guide and I managed to get my hands on a copy.
When the book arrived I expected a very simple book, and I have to admit to having been pleasantly surprised. As well as being an excellent tutorial for beginners, there is actually quite a lot for the more experienced developer and I found myself picking up quite a few new tricks, and clarifying my knowledge in a few places. One area that MooTools has always been weak in comparison to rival frameworks like jQuery has been the quality of the documentation and tutorials for beginners, this book really addresses that area and should be a welcome addition to the library of any MooTools developer.
