The only remark I have for this book is about the 'Regular Expressions' chapter, in my opinion it is not written very clear and can be confusing, but it is fer to say that the authors are suggesting additional literature for getting familiar with regular expressions.
Big plus is that all the source code form the book examples is very well structured and packed in zip file that enables you to quickly try the examples on computer.
Its a good buy, and I highly recommend it. Appreciate the author's sense of humor every once in a while - its like a team member actually explaining stuff to you during code reviews :)
What is nice is that every bit of theory is accompanied with some code examples from libaries like jQuery or Prototype, and the examples are explained very well.
One minor negative point is that there are also a lot of pages in the book which are dedicated to deprecated statements like 'eval' and 'with'. It's nice to know how they work, but you shouldn't use them anyway so an entire chapter for each of them seems like too much attention.
The title and Ninja theme may seem a little silly, but don't be fooled. This is a serious and brilliantly conceived and executed tour of this powerful development language.
