The book supposes that readers don't know anything about HTML and JavaScript so it introduces HTML and JavaScript at the same time. Also, it covers most JavaScript features and gives you some simple examples. If you are new to HTML and JavaScript, this is the right book for you. You can know the basics of JavaScript

very quickly.

Since this book only introdcues "how to do some things with JavaScript". And if you really want to know "how to do everything with JavaScript", " JavaScript & DHTML Cookbook" might be the book you should buy.

Format: Paperback
Experience programmers learning Javascript as a new language will enjoy reading this book. It is clear and concise with simple examples. Novice programmers would also find this book useful. It is organized in a traditional way in which programming is taught. As you go through the chapters, the content becomes a bit more advanced.

This book would also be good for beginners, but it is not as good as Javascript: A Beginner's Guide.

However, this book is not a comprehensive presentation of Javascript and the DOM. You will need a companion book that is more of a complete reference. I am currently leaning toward JavaScript Bible, but have not yet made my decision. You may also want to consider a book that is directed toward specific applications. Javascript & DHTML Cookbook falls more into this category.

Format: Paperback
The "How to do it with everything s..." is one of the best series of its kind, I have found. Covering many subjects, as it does, I am particularly pleased with the way it deals with Web, or should I say Internet, related topics and still remain quite current. Not an easy thing, what with the speed of changes as fast as they are on-line.

JaveScript, which is a far more important facility than people give credit for, is quite difficult to explain, especially in a small book. Nevertheless, it is done very well here. Not explained "ad nauseum" but with tight facts and easy to follow examples.

Amazon sells this book at a great price, which is made even better if you buy say, two books and get the delivery for free. Saves me a fortune, I know that...

Learn and Enjoy.....

Format: Paperback
It describes appropriately the JavaScript language. It is well written with almost no typos. It also has some introduction to the new JavaScript version 2.0. However, it is not clear when it describes DOM, JavaScript, and browser objects, methods and attributes, what it is fundamental for web applications development.
