    Great point to start JavaScript

    This book takes you from 'know nothing' and steps you up to any level you want to achieve. I liked the examples and the fact you can get them from their website to so you won't type them all over. Many of the tips answered my questions and suggested some really good ways of doing things. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get on the JavaScript wagon.
