    Best book on JavaScript I've found. Better than most textbooks

    Simply a very, very good book on JavaScript. Much better than the two textbooks we used in a recent JavaScript class at NYU. Clear presentation, useful examples, good editing...a very, very good book on JavaSript.

    This is not a reference book nor an "advanced" JavaScript text. It's mostly for beginners and intermediate learners. But for that purpose, excellent.

    Great discussion of DOM, JavaScript, XHTML and CSS for any dev

    One thing that's tragically happened to many web developers wanting to be on the cutting-edge over the last several years is letting go of JavaScript due to features backed-in to server-side frameworks like ASP.NET, JSP, PHP and custom content management systems. These sorely forgotten skills were once thought to be a key arrow in any developer's quill. Well, now with AJAX and rich UIs being all the rage, it's almost mandated that developers will need to have a masterful knowledge of client-side programming for online apps. Many developers are now coming back to JavaScript, realizing that it's nearly a completely new language. Author Jeremy Keith lays out a wonderful book about how easy it is to get (back) up to speed with DOM coding with JavaScript, CSS, XHTML and other related technologies and techniques. This is a wonderfully written title with a very friendly voice - neither intimidating to the newbie just picking up web development nor insulting to the experienced dev looking for a refresher. The book's highlights are proper, best practices programming wrapped around a practical image gallery application. Graceful degradation, defensive coding and cross-browser compatibility are enforces throughout the book's many source code examples. The book's while the title implies heavy concentration on the DOM, is actually a thorough look at how to properly structure, format and control behavior in hyperdocuments. The book is a little light on AJAX, dedicating a single chapter to it but providing only a terse look at asynchronous programming. But the reference section more than makes up for it, being well stocked with JavaScript API members. This is a fantastic work that any developer should pickup and make part of their library of in-quick-reach titles.
