From Barnes & Noble
This is a thoroughly visual JavaScript introduction that's perfect for web designers who've simply got to learn a little scripting, and for web developers who work in other languages but need quick mastery of JavaScript. The book covers basic syntax, expressions, program flow, functions, events, debugging -- plus all the techniques you need to work with images, forms, and frames; detect browsers; use cookies; and more.

    Great Book

    This book was great, the colors and the diagrams explained everything from the very begginning. And it was so easy to learn taht even I, a 14 year old, learned it all.

    This book taught me exactly what I needed for Javascript. The pictures are clear, the diagrams are shaped perfectly, and everything is easy to read. I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to learn Javascript.

    Not very good for beginners

    I am just learning and this was my first book. It did not help at all. You are expected to know how to do some java. Great to fine tune the skill, but horrible for a beginner..
