With this one and Java for Dummies, I don't bother glancing at another technical "for Dummies" book ever again, barring HTML. This book is more like "Javascripting for Dummies". The author does an extremely poor job of setting a context and overview - it's straight into the code and syntax. Since I know Java, it wasn't difficult to follow. For people who knows only HTML, this book will leave them in a fog. Want to learn Javascript? Look elsewhere.

Wonder if this has been updated?

Pretty sure I read this back in the late 90's... almost none of it would be relevant today.

A good refresh, a bit out-dated but ok.
