Summary: Great for a beginner like me!
Comment: Hi
I got this book since i have read by example books before and loved them.I really enjoyed this book too.This book is for beginners that know basically what programming is but don't actually know any language.
The lessons are slow paced so you get it, with plenty of examples.The only complaint i might have is that the book has some typos in the code but i have figured them all out and corrected them, proving that i am learning(I am yet to see a programming book with no typos in the code examples.).
I highly recommend this book to a newbie that has read something like "Programming for dummies" as a primer.

Summary: Disappointed
Comment: "Pop up windows using JavaScript" would be a more accurate title. I learned more from online tutorials than this book delivered.

Summary: Not for the beginner!
Comment: I was sent this book by my book club by mistake (waited too long and had to buy it.)... I started to read it and realized that it didn't start at the basics like I needed. HOWEVER after going through the wrox book "Begining JavaScript" and then picking this book back up I did learn a few different aspects of JavaScript that were not covered by the Wrox book. The book does bring to light a few different perspectives that might help somebody with certain programming needs, but that's about it. I am not knocking this book it does have it's place. Final thought is figure out what you need and if other books don't deliver this one might :)
