Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“The author begins with a brief history of the Google Maps API … . this practice quite helpful as I didn’t have to flip back and forth as I have in other technical books to figure out the totality of what was going on. … All in all, I’d highly recommend Beginning Google Maps API 3 to those looking to develop Google Maps applications with the new API. It’s clearly written with lots of examples and pictures of exactly what the code’s output looks like.” (North Carolina Digital Collections Collaboratory, September, 2010)
