I've been programming for years, and while I've enjoyed many other JS books including "The Good Parts" nothing brought it together for me like this. IMHO it's simply the best book on the subject. If you know other languages, yet are always wondering about those weird JS techniques, and the reasons behind them, this is the book for you. It led me to a few ah-ha moments and has really helped me better understand JS programming. No matter what your level of experience, you'll get something from this book. It's a gem.

This is really a fantastic book!!! Not too much pages, but clearly doc'ed!
It has everything I needed, all js tricks and curiousness now clearly get clarified!
Before reading the book, I did can do some js scripting but without knowing the spirits and the exact. After reading through the book and some coding, the confidence just increased and I feel like a js pro ^_^ now...
This is one of the few books worth keeping forever. My workmate asked to borrow, I just told her "buy one, keep it and you need it all the time..."
The only thing missed is about the mystery of "this" keyword. Will be great if one more specific topic for "this" added there...
