Suitable book(s) for anyone who has just completed the jQuery unit.

Hi I have finished the jQuery unit, but would like to follow-up further with some additional reading (as I'm still very weak at this subject). Does anyone know of any books on jQuery which they feel have helped them alot after having finished the jQuery unit? I prefer books as the guidance is structured (as opposed to me running all over the place picking up bits of information).

Thank you for your time and help.

I like Learning Jquery by Jonathan Chaffer and Karl Swedberg and Jquery in Action by Bear Bibealt and Yehuda Katz as well as this site: http://www.learningjquery.com/

What do you say about the author mentioning the site is now considered "archived" and "For up-to-date jQuery tutorials, visit the official jQuery Learning Center".

Just so you all know, this is a pirate site. Most of these books are NOT free, and the authors who spent a long time writing them do not get paid when you download from this site.

There is quite a selection there. Thank you very much for the link, I will check them out.

Michael, this was a really big help, thank you very much.

James, thank you for all the good references. I have more than enough to satisfy my need.
