Summary: My Programming Bible
Comment: Talk about an investment. I got this book for like thirty bucks and with the knowledge it provided I was able to more than double my salary in two years. Although some aggressive negotiating is still involved, in the end I still have to know my stuff and this book has provided me with it. Clear and easy to follow examples given throughout. When you built a solid foundation, go to the web for more updated information.

Summary: Not for beginners
Comment: I picked this book up and it gives a good introduction to javascript. However, it is NOT for the newbie. If you don't have any programming experience in a major language (C/C++, Pascal, VB, etc.) find another book. This book rushes through many concepts that adept programmers already know. As I read I kept wondering how a newcomer would absorb all the information presented here.

However, being knowledgeable in programming, I was able to pick up on how Javascript works. The book is a little dated and doesn't list all the object properties for most objects - so a reference guide is needed.

Not a bad backup book, but don't make it your only one. You'll wind up short changing yourself.

Summary: A WASTE of TIME & good MONEY
Comment: I must agree with those listed below. Too many typos, too many errors. I tried to get some answers via Ms Lemay via her home web page but never an answer. It seems that a minute of her time is worth more than all the time wasted by readers of her book. My advice go for either the O'Reilly series by Flanagan or the Javascript Bible by Danny Goodman. At least these authors & publishers show more consideration to & respect for the reading public who do not want to waste their hard earned cash / time.
