Summary: The API guide to know and love
Comment: If you already know how to program and just need to learn the JavaScript syntax this is THE book to get. Can't wait until their SQL Pocket Reference is available!

Customer Rating: 5
Summary: Another perfect O'Reilly book
Comment: A very good reference if you are good in the basic concepts of C++ / Java or if you already program using Javascript. This pocket book should stay close to your computer. After a sufficient practice of Javascript programming you won't need another guide.

Summary: If you've already got the "Definitive Guide", skip this
Comment: I was hoping and expecting that this little book would be the same quick-and-easy reference book that e.g. the "VBScript Pocket Reference" is -- I was sadly disappointed.

Since "JavaScript: The Definitive Guide" is by the same author and publisher, I also expected this book to be a (somewhat) boiled-down version of the very thorough JavaScript Reference from that much larger book. I was even more disappointed there.

In a "pocket reference" such as this I want and need nothing more or less than an alphabetical listing of the JavaScript universe. However, this book is divided into numerous chapters that require you to already know what category the thing you seek belongs to. Since there's no index in these little books, it is useless to me as someone who's still learning this stuff. I've set my copy aside and use the "Definitive Guide" exclusively.
