This, for me, is the definitive introduction to Javascript for the neophyte programmer. It helps if one has been exposed to a programming tutorial or two, or has dabbled at programming. Three things make this book so very good. First, Marijn communicates more clearly than most authors. Second, he doesn't avoid an intuitive description of how things work--theory--just so that he can show you some recipes for getting stuff done. Third, he still does provide some very good recipes that you will actually understand, because let's face it, you're going to want to show a friend or colleague what you've learned, and printing some plain text to the console just ain't gonna impress your friend. Martin gives you the stuff to actually create something that you will be proud to say of, "I made this"!

This book might be fine as a reference for people who already have a background in JS, but it's definitely not for beginners. When I pointed out the issues with his work and the gap between the content and the exercises after each chapter, the author simply blames the reader for not having the capacity to do JS. Haverbeke could do better by approaching the act of helping beginners with more practical guide and by leaving his arrogance behind. The reader can do better by purchasing "JavaScript & JQuery" by Jon Duckett.
