I bought this book in February, when v1 was current, and found it very helpful for learning how to use the API, and a lot of fun. Even though I had almost no experience with JavaScript before using the book, the examples were all very understandable. Now that version 2.x is online, I still use the book, but need to modify the code, of course, making things somewhat less convenient. I eagerly look forward to a new edition, hopefully with new examples in addition to updates of the basic ones. Those who need an introduction to the API should probably wait for this edition to be released before making the purchase.
