About the Author
Jeremy Keith is a web developer living and working in Brighton, England. Working with the web consultancy firm Clearleft (Clearleft.com), he enjoys building accessible, elegant websites using the troika of web standards: XHTML, CSS, and the DOM. His online home is Adactio.com. Jeremy is also a member of the WebStandards.org, where he serves as joint leader of the DOM Scripting Task Force. When he's not building websites, Jeremy plays bouzouki in the alt.country band Salter Cane (SalterCane.com). He is also the creator and curator of one of the web's largest online communities dedicated to Irish traditional music, TheSession.org.

If the book simply promoted "best practices" it would be worthwhile. But this is a very good teaching text, too. The last feature is so rare that I bow to Mr. Keith. So often programming texts are written by and for alpha geeks and are opaque to mere mortals. I can actually understand this book the first time through.
DOM Scripting is written, not to programmers but to designers, albeit designers who are competent hand coders, but designers, none the less. The examples make sense. The projects are ones I actually will use. And terms are described in plain English, with no assumptions of some core, pre-existing knowledge. What makes this book even friendlier is that fact that it isn't a doorstop. At less than 400 pages, including appendices, it's not so intimidating that it will never get read.
If you read and work this book, you will have a solid foundation in client side, interactive web design. If you need to do AJAX, you will have a good handle on how to work its basic tools in your web pages.
Sometimes when you know an old method it's harder to develop the "good habits" that come with a more evolved version of the language and few resources really help with making that transition and discarding old bad habits and approaches.
