5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Programming Books Period
I've owned a lot of programming books in the past, but David Flanagan's Javascript The Definitive Guide is by far one of the best! This book covers all the intricate details of Javascript and contains more than enough information to get any aspiring Javascript programmer started. But it doesn't end there - this book covers advanced details such as pseudo-OO in Javascript,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing purchase process
I searched for this book on your site but it was not available except through the "available from these sellers" link. However, after paying full price for a new book at one of these sites, they indicated that it was damaged in shipping and since they could not refill the order with a new book they sent a second hand book at 15 %less. However, by the time this occurred,...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Programming Books Period, Nov. 25 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Paperback)
I've owned a lot of programming books in the past, but David Flanagan's Javascript The Definitive Guide is by far one of the best! This book covers all the intricate details of Javascript and contains more than enough information to get any aspiring Javascript programmer started. But it doesn't end there - this book covers advanced details such as pseudo-OO in Javascript, namespaces, Java integration, AJAX, and alot of other features other books tend to gloss over.

If you're going to buy a Javascript book, this is the one to get - Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fifth Edition an Essential JavaScript Reference, Sept. 11 2006
This review is from: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Paperback)
If there is an essential online JavaScript/Client-Development resource, it could quite possbly be the QuirksMode site. If there is an essential JavaScript book for developers, this would have to be it. JavaScript: The Definitive Guide, with its roots that date back to 1996, is pushing out its fifth edition after a four year hiatus from the previous release. And it is joining the crowd in the Ajax and Web 2.0 wave. A couple new chapters pertain to Ajax development. But what I find great about this book is the natural tendency to point out "gotchas" in everyday client-side development.

However, by the time this occurred, the book was available new on your site and considerably less expensive than the cost from the other seller. I would have thought that companies under your link "available from these sellers" would be affiliates who would have been able to fill the new book request from your stock and not send second hand, even at a reduced rate. I was very disappointed with the entire process which turned out to be more costly than necessary as well as over long in being received due to the damage in shipping.
