    Would say the book works as an introduction to JavaScript and the JavaScript environment.
    Don’t know if it would work for someone who hasn’t programmed before. Knowledge of HTML and CSS is almost a must. The author does take a couple of pages to explain HTML and CSS, that wouldn’t be enough for a true beginner.

    If someone has some knowledge of HTML and CSS then this is easy book to read and understand. The author explains the concepts without going into too much detail, as an introduction book should. This book won’t make the reader an expert in JavaScript, but will give a good beginning to the world of JavaScript.

    The book also gives an introduction into jQuery, Ajax and also touches on JSON. With only about 200 pages, all subject matter is more introduction than in-depth.
    One last thing, the book uses Visual Studio for the development environment. The reader can get the free version of Visual Studio (Express) from Microsoft and the book tells you how to do it. The reader can use another text editor, just realize that the examples in the book use Visual Studio.
