This is a great book about JavaScript. It does not hide the fact that there are serious design flaws in the language. Instead (as the name suggests) powers through showing the good parts of the language and follows up with a couple chapters on some bad parts.

The syntax of the language is shown using clever 'railroad' diagrams. These convey the language in an efficient manner. Having not seen this type of diagram before I greatly enjoyed it.

This book is short and to the point. It should be a quick read for any one interested in JavaScript.
