JavaScript: The Definitive Guide

by Wojciech Adam Koszek   ⋅   Mar 24, 2013   ⋅   Menlo Park, CA

This book shows old Javascript. For the latest pieces with static types etc., you'll have to find something else.

1/3rd of book is good. The rest was basically API manual pages all over the place and DOM browser hierarchies explained. I skipped those.

1/3rd I went through was decent. Javascript is like C, but slightly more extended.

Unless you buy stuff from used book outlets via Amazon I don’t recommend. Other than that: $4 well spent.
