5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beginners to Intermediate Book, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent beginners to intermediate book. I took a chance and bought it and it is really good. The exercises and muscles targeted are explained well and the exercise progression is well thought out. And for the price it can't be beat !

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointed, 13 Aug 2011
The cover, write-up on the back, plus the fact that this is the first in a series of books made this book look interesting. Unfortunately I gave up after less than a hundred pages as the style of writing seems very amateur. I can't believe that paid book reviewers have rated this so highly. Are they living on another planet?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 2nd PHP book for anyone, 28 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
as the previous reviewer said this is not a first php book. However as a second php book it is really good. The book is packed full of useful examples of code and the writer has a nice easy writing style - not too much detail, but enough to get every example to work and understood to a good level.
Great Job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Practical Javascript Book, 13 Dec 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic practical javascript book. Its not for the absolute beginner. You should have a basic understanding of Javascript before attempting this book. However once you do you will not regret it and the book lives up to its authors promise of getting you up to intermediate javascript developer level. Five stars all the way for being such a practical useful book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Great Advice, But Not For Beginners, 18 April 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Simply JavaScript (Paperback)
This is a very good introduction to Javascript and good Javascript coding practices. The examples are useful and the simple code library provided is also very useful. However if you are a beginner then you should really have a look at a simpler book. The only reason I have not given it five stars is that the marketing of the book leads one to think that it is great for absolute beginners. The ideal audience for this book is someone who has dabbled with Javascript and now wants to take a more professional and structured approach.
