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.

A very well written book on JavaScript for people passed the beginner stage interested in really getting a grasp of the language. The sections are well defined, the examples are clear and enlightening. The stuff presented can be of complex matter but the author manages to explain it with grace and efficiency. It presents some elements from Crockfords's book Javascript: The Good Parts (minus the beginner stuff) but pushes the subject further and, in my opinion, more clearly.

This book is great for intermediate to advanced Javascript developers who wish to brush up on their Javascript. The book contains many great ideas on how to write better Javascript applications by following tried and true Javascript patterns. For beginners, the code examples help a lot, but they may take a longer to follow the concepts and code. Anyone having read this book will walk away a better Javascript developer.

Examples are great and it helps you understand some of the quirks of js patterns, recommend you have some programming experience prior to reading this however, preferably js

This book is a great resource for anyone who is now learning JavaScript or just stumbled upon it. Stefanov does a great job at explaining what are some of the most common pitfalls people make when writing JavaScript. I would definitely recommend this book.

If you're a beginner you don't need a book, you go online and read on some basics.
If you're a pro you do need a book and this is the book you need.

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...
