1.0 out of 5 stars Cannot learn JavaScript from this book
By Anil Philip on July 17, 2019
Perhaps if you are a highly intelligent person, you may learn JavaScript from this book. But otherwise it is a bewildering and frustrating book to read. One gets the feeling this was an academic paper written for his colleagues and he added a little 'introduction' material so he could sell the book to the rest of us. There is almost no explanation. This is unlike any other programming language book I have read. What a waste of money. I wish he had actually tried to teach JavaScript through a set of tutorials. At the beginning he starts off very witty and entertaining and one feels this book is a gem. But then as you go on your realize you're not learning JavaScript at all, and then and realize this book is either shallow or it's meant for people who already learned JavaScript. This is a really bad book.
