In the event you are interested, O'Reilly Media, Inc. has these pocket reference books available for sale in the iTunes Application Store as an application for your iPhone or iPod Touch. They are sold for only a few dollars. If you'd rather have an e-book version, that's the way to go. Of course, you can also purchase this book for the Amazon Kindle.
The alternative to the index is to look up the object class/name first, e.g., "Array", which is used as page titles, occurring alphabetically, and then look through the text for the method name. It's painful, and should not be necessary.
The other advantage of an index is that looking up a method name would quickly inform you as to which objects support that method.
Perhaps the 3rd Edition will have an index?
Ironically, the accompanying pocket reference that I happened to buy along with this book had more information concerning dates than the book, and answered the questions I had at the time, albeit with some guesswork on my part.
The only thing I will praise this book on for now (still going through it) is its chapter on the DOM - Document Object Model. So far it seems quite plentiful, which is good. I'm no JS buff, but it seems as if the DOM is a major part of the language.
Bottom line: do not buy this book if you're new to programming. If you already have a handle on variables, functions, arrays, and other such things, then you might be able to make do.
