5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Javascript Reference, February 22, 2005
This review is from: JavaScript: The Complete Reference, Second Edition (Paperback)
I'm not sure why there are no other reviews of the 2nd edition of this book here, but let me rectify that now. This is an extraordinarily lucid presentation of JavaScript and its related technologies. It certainly deserves the praise it received from other reviewers (see reviews of prior edition). I've only read through chapter 12, but I've learned more from this book than three prior JavaScript texts combined. From coverage of core JavaScript to a rigorous examination of JavaScript objects and the various object models, the authors have delivered exactly what I was looking for. I've always been confused about the proper interpretation of the `this' keyword. The authors explain precisely how and why that keyword operates in different contexts and I feel totally comfortable with it now. I also have to complement the authors and editors on the quality of the writing and the accuracy of the text. The writing is tight, the code samples are well crafted and self-contained and I've only found four mistakes in 400 pages of text. In fact, I've never seen so few errors in a technical book of this size. I highly recommend this book to anyone, regardless of your level of expertise.
