Recommends it for: anyone wanting to learn web programming
Shelves: computer
I loved the format of this book - each example program is explained line by line (or block by block when that makes more sense). And the authors do this throughout the book! So when you get to later chapters, it's not assumed that you already know what's going on. Things are still explained in a clear, concise yet detailed, manner.
Textbook for class. Much more boring than actually attending class. Infinitely more boring than writing code.

definitly needs more examples's so wordy it makes me fall asleep

Through my programming college years and on to when I setup and ran my own Webdesign business, this book was my bible.

A helpful and useful book. Easy to follow, many years old now but still it can very much be used in practice through the internet.

I decided to read this book, because I was looking for Javascript for starters, however I wasn't expecting a text for people with no exposure at all to software development. Despite of many boring chapters, explaining what programming actually is, I found there plenty of information that I was looking for. To summarize, it is a good introductory text to Javascript about both programming language and web development.

I always keep this book on my bookshelf for reference. I have never been a JavaScript fan but we all have to do it to get jobs done and this book has helped me out a lot over the years.

Pretty good. I found some really good code for some complex operations I needed on my web site.
