This book contains more information than you could shake a stick at !

It is written based on actual experience working with Javascript in the real world . The information is presented in what I would call a 'Transfer of Information ' style, kind of like a brain dump rather than any thing else. The example code is kept short and what's more each and every snippet is explained thoroughly in detail.

I've read the 'Definitive Guide' which is touted as being the JavaScript Developers 'Bible' but I found 'Pro JavaScript' to be just as comprehensive and useful. It's actually better since it describes things more thoroughly and explains /why/ you need to know things. It goes far beyond the actual Syntax and describes how the language is used in real life, eg. Inheritance and OOP.

In essence this book provides much more of a tutorial than a reference , which is where its real value lies. It covers the topics in exquisite detail and the author has been meticulous even to the point of obsessive in his coverage. Whilst reading it, you will feel like you are in the presence of a JavaScript guru with a genuine intent to teach what he knows

There is also a lot of fascinating information about browsers 'quirks', how browsers and the WWW evolved, and things you need to be aware of in general.
I don't think I found one typo in the whole book.. that's quite unusual !

So in summary this is a very good value, well rounded JavaScript book that I would recomend to any one who is commited to getting up to speed Developing the Web.

Beside the fact that its a book from a professional on the field, it's well written and very easy to read. You can finish it very soon. It's not a step by step guide but a reference explaining in detail all of the language's details but yet in a great way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fully Featured, 30 Dec 2012
This review is from: Professional JavaScript for Web Developers (Paperback)
Bought this book hoping to learn something extra and it delivered on all counts. I'm certainly nowhere near finishing it but i've found so many things in it that when I go back to other books I have on the same subject, they now make more sense. This is because "this" book explains stuff fluidly and precisely. I learn't more about Functions than I did from numerous other books or from the internet. Highly advise anyone serious about this subject to purchase it.
