    This was a fantastic follow-up to First Flight! The advanced topics Gregg presented helped fill in some gaps for me and my jQuery skills have significantly improved :)

    Yet another fantastic course! Love your work.

    Captain's Log is definitely one of the more advanced courses currently available. It expands on First Flight, so you definitely need to have taken that first; if not, you may be left rather confused. There's more than enough new material, including covering some features of jQuery 1.7 which hadn't been included before (because that version is brand new). If there's going to be a third in the series, count me in!

    Excellent production and presentation. I especially was impressed with the AJAX segment; thanks for demonstrating not only concepts but incorporating best practices as well. My only suggestion would be to consider breaking out the final chapter-the contents traversed some pretty broad topics. Otherwise, top notch. Oh, and that blasted jingle......
