Best intro to JS I've read.

There's a common issue with learning new technologies when you have a few already under your belt. You have expectations about what and how you should learn based on your past experiences. Some people just bash through the discomfort, others get stuck looking for the perfect resources, others post on StackOverflow with requests for the "most efficient way of learning x".
This little book is great. Not actually perfect, but good enough for five stars certainly. The writing style is clear and he covers the material in a logical order which makes much more sense to someone who already has a technical foundation. There are little reassurances that if something doesn't make sense right now, either it will be covered very soon, or it is covered immediately in a side note.
