Summary: A friendly introduction to the language
Comment: Unfortunately, the title is very misleading so I gave it a three instead of a four, but the book offers the beginner a good, painless foundation to the language. It doesn't cover all the intricacies of JavaScript, but it puts you in a position to pursue the more comprehensive but not as friendly treatments found in the some of the other texts (e.g., O'Reilly, JavaScript Bible).

It points out the incompatibilty in the browsers, and gives basic treatments for handling each.

Though I'm an experienced programmer, I read it on my daily bus commute in a week. The book assumes a basic familiarity with HTML, and little programming knowledge.

Summary: Don't waste your money or time with this one
Comment: The title of this book JavaScript Complete isn't only missleading its an outwright lie. The book is writen at the most basic of all levels, even someone with no programming experience would find it to basic. The size of the book could be cut in half if it wern't for the incredible about of code repition. Oh, while I'm on the subject of code his coding style is sad to say the least, not to mention the fact I found I few things to be just plane wrong. Don't be fooled by the title there is nothing complete about this book, I honestly can't emagine anyone who would benifit from it. Your money would be much better spent on a less expencive more comprehesive book.

Summary: It is "Complete"!!
Comment: I have found "JavaScript Complete" a very good recource for all of the JavaScript commands. "JavaScript Complete" is not just a programmers reference but a book suited for students or web developers, amateur or professional! I also liked the CD that came with the book because it contains an abundance of pre-made html code and totally follows the books content. If your definitely into JavaScript and html this book is a must.
