But, what if you have the 6th edition? What did David Flanagan change? Overall, the 7th edition comes in at 40% smaller than the 6th edition. Do you keep both? Nope. The 7th edition is much better thought through and eliminates much of the old and adds in important new things.
The remaining changes are around the fundamentals. He has added information on symbols and has greatly reworked chapters on object and classes as one would expect. Modules have been split out into their own chapter. And, he has added a good "summary" section to each chapter.
If read cover to cover, the learning curve is steady but gentle. Although the text is a little dry, the author still finds time to crack a few jokes.
Then the new edition of Flanagan’s JS guide was released. This book is not an easy bedtime reading. There are tons of concepts to learn there which are often recursive in different chapters, ie you can’t really skip or change the topic sequence of the book.
However I think that the author does a v good job in helping readers understating via precised and short code examples.
Being a busy programmer I appreciate the fact that each paragraph is loaded with useful information so I don't have to skip over useless conversational, waste of time text.
The book can certainly be read from cover to cover. It's writing style is engaging enough. However, the immaculate organization and presentation of the chapters makes this book really shine as a reference. This is the book I go to when I need to look something up. It even replaces my previous favorite Nicholas C. Zakas excellent 'Understanding Ecmascript 6'.
I also love the short and easy to understand code samples. Again being a busy programmer I loathe having to waste time trying to decipher a weighty chunk of example code just to learn a simple feature. There's nothing wrong with toy code examples if they get the point across.

Great if you want a reference on your bookcase...that you won't use as the Internet has better and faster , not to mention more enjoyable means of reference.
