2.0 out of 5 stars Style good for beginners, but too many errors will confuse, October 8, 2004
The style, presentation, good for beginners features are potentially great, but there are too many errors that will confuse and mislead beginners and frustrate experienced programmers (I've been programming for 44 years). I now have very little confidence in what I read in the book because of the errors and misleading discussions. His explanation of capitalization, spacing, and line breaking on page 8 shows he doesn't know JavaScript syntax. He makes it sound like black magic. There are proper ways to do those things. His discussion on random numbers and modulus arithmetic in Chapter 6 is fatally flawed. His explanations of some other computer science terms and concepts is confused, incomplete, and erroneous.
