Format: Paperback
This book does a good job of teaching the fundamentals about javascript, what this book lacks is tutorials that you can follow along with and type yourself to get better and learn javascript. The book does have examples but many of the examples are poorly chosen. There are not that many good books on javascript out there, so I would still recommend this book to you, you may however want to try some free courses online to help you improve your skills.

If you know absolutely nothing and programming then this book is easy enough for you. It explains how programs are structured and why then builds up from their. If you're an expert Javascript programmer this entire book is likely too easy. If you're a seasoned programmer but don't know any JavaScript then the first 50 or so pages you can skim and then get into actually learning something. Like the HTML and CSS book this one is beautiful and nice to read. It's really easy to follow as well.

Duckett's books are certainly designed with graphic designers in mind. Beautiful, and clear communication of ideas.
