Best Not-an-Ajax Book by Title
The next 3 chapters show how much can be done on the client without any page refreshes required. This is the best part of the book because it has fewer server side dependencies. AJAX has the problem that all Web-based frameworks - they don't support offline operation
nearly at all. But many Web applications are really "offline + online" applications. This book shows some ways the umbilical back to the server can be cut and then reconnected, for online and some offline operations.
Foundations of Ajax Books
Much of the early hype surrounding Ajax centered on its use by Internet powerhouses such as Google and Amazon. However, just because the initial forays into Ajax were pioneered by leading software development firms doesn't mean your application wouldn't also benefit from these techniques. You already know how to develop Web applications, so this book uses specific, focused examples to teach the Ajax tools and techniques you'll need to bring your applications to life. Armed with this book and your existing development expertise, you too will be able to apply Ajax techniques to your application to enrich the end user's experience.

Book Review - Ajax Patterns and Best Practices
Christian Gross? Ajax Patterns and Best Practices is a quality book for the intermediate to advanced ajax programmer who is looking to expand their skills. This is definitely not a beginner?s introduction to ajax, as once you get past the first three chapters or so Gross dives into some heavy duty patterns for difficult problems in ajax. The book suffers from a lack of editing and a few curious technical remarks, but overall it does a good job of covering ajax patterns and practices. Gross is obviously a fan of REST and XML, so your views on this book might depend upon how much you agree with his technical choices. Chapters one and two cover the basics of the XHR object and using the factory pattern to abstract away browser differences for the object. Chapter three covers ?Content Chunking?, Gross? term for what he admits is core to ajax - an event leading to an asynchronous request with then responds with some sort of content to inject back into the document. you see for detail information-http://ajaxian.com/by/topic/books/
