This book is okay i guess. When i first picked it up and started trying out some browser scripting it was quite helpful at pointing me in the right direction. As my project progressed, however, and I started trying to do some more complicated things the book pretty much leaves you in the dark and what they tell you often raises more questions rather than providing answers. The main problem is the incomplete description of jscript's object model. They seem to be rather complete in covering most objects, properties, methods and event handlers but its often difficult to figure out how to use them. They offer few suggestions for many of them and the examples in this section are generally poor. At least one I know of is totally incorrect. I often had to guess at some properties of objects that i could influence by looking at an HTML reference. Its not really a 'why' type of book geared towards people with programming experience(it may just frustrate you!), but more of a book where people are supposed to parrot their examples of commonly desired features. I guess you can't really expect a robust book if it has 'for dummies' on the cover though...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
