Summary: A handy day-to-day reference document
Comment: I found this book to be very useful. There are many examples that are helpful in developing your JavaScript skills, and there are several more advanced sections that include explaining how JavaScript can be used to link with Java and ActiveX. This book truly helped me develop from a beginner at JavaScript to an expert. My experience before this book was that I was an HTML expert, but didn't have a clue about JavaScript. I am currently doing some web page development work and I routinely reference this book to refresh my memory. I highly recommend this book, though it may be getting out of date a bit, but since there are still many people using Version 4 browsers, this book will ensure you are writing JavaScript code that can be used by most anyone, not just IE5.0 users.

Summary: No effort went into making this book
Comment: This is a truly awful book. It is a classic example of some joker throwing some stuff down on paper and trying to sell it. Despite its large size, it contains very little information. The book mostly consists of lengthy, unhelpful examples printed in a large font to take up space. I ended up returning it and getting the Beginning Javascript book from the Programmer to Programmer series, and it's great. Don't waste your money on this one, though.

Summary: A crapper
Comment: Some of the scripts are useful i na canned way and if you know programming you can perhaps tweak them to your use. But the book does little to help you learn javascript... just example programs and screens.. no teaching of the why's & how's. There are better references on the web for free.
