However, I was hoping that the second half of the book would provide more information on specific practices and implementations. For example, although closures are introduced well in terms of what they are and how they are created, there is no real discussion of use cases. There are no details of when a closure would be preferred over a normal function and/or object and there is no discussion of performance issues. Web workers are mentioned but not really addressed.
All in all, this book is definitely worth the read if you are not an expert programmer.
Do not take the word 'expert' without the weight it deserves. This is a fantastic book, but ONLY if you're looking to see the depths of the language.
If you're a typical software/web dev, and just want to pick up a few JS tricks, this is NOT your book.
