Lots of information, some suspect claims, and a TERRIBLE index
on March 5, 2013
for/in loops, 100
in array comprehensions, 281
continue statements in, 104
enumerating properties, 126-128
extension to work with iterable objects,274-277
iterating arrays, 147
iterating through methods, fields and properties of Java classes and objects, 292
let keyword in, 270
property enumeration order, 101
using with associative arrays, 121
And the corresponding entry in PJSfWD:
for-in statement: 72-73
Now mind you, PJSfWD covers most everything that JS:TDG does, but you'd never know it by looking at the index. This severely reduces the book's value as a reference.
That said, the book covers a lot of ground, and to get as comprehensive a language reference that also covers as much web development, you'd probably have to buy two books. But if you did, you'd probably have better coverage than this book gives.
It gets four stars for content, docked one star for technical gaffs and an unforgivable index.
