Format: Paperback
I purchased this book because it was part of the required text reading for the Beginners JavaScript course I was taking. Not only is it horribly written for anybody who's not used to this kind of jargon, it's riddled with errors. If it wasn't for the example files available for download, a person would be pulling their hair out trying to figure out why the exercises in the book are not working. As a new person to JavaScript, I shouldn't have to be concerned about whether the author/editor got it's act together and printed the book accurately.

After my course is finished, I will be putting this book in the recycling bin, and buying something better for reference material.

I purchased this book because it was specified as the textbook to be used for an introductory Javascript course I will be taking. When trying out the examples mentioned in this book I immediately noticed that there are quite a few areas where the code is not correct or is missing entirely. Some examples include showing a "=" in place of "+=" and missing function definitions.

This will only serve to confuse students who are new to programming with Javascript.

The example data that can be downloaded from the publishers website is correct, however. Perhaps they noticed the problems and fixed these (but forgot to fix the contents of the books).

HASH(0xb6dc5ca8) out of 5 stars Good basic overview for people with some coding experience Jan. 23 2013
By Alex - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just completed this book and enjoyed the read. I am a college student in undergrad and have about a year's worth of experience in Java. I wanted to pick up a quick read to understand some of the basics of JavaScripting and found this book quite helpful. If you have no experience with programming or HTML this may be a difficult read. If you have some experience coding and know little about HTML(like me, for example) you will have to google a fair amount to get caught up. The author does not go into detail about much of anything, this is a simple, do-it-yourself type book that is right to the point and gets you on your feet. I have not tried actually JavaScripting on a website yet, but as far as a knowledge of the basics of the language and how the webpage is set up, I think this book does a fine job.

Not very useful. I have several of his other books, which are pretty good. The one on Java was fine, for example. This one was not as clearly written as the other ones.
