4.0 out of 5 stars Very good - great coverage of DOM node manipulation, 9 May 2013
This review is from: Getting Good with Javascript (Paperback)
The third book I've read covering JavaScript.

Only the "good parts" are covered here, and it never felt overly dense and was always clear.

It contains the best practical introduction on DOM node manipulation that I've found anywhere. That, alone, deserves high praise.

The author himself recommends Eloquent JavaScript (link below) and probably wouldn't mind my saying that book tackles harnessing the power of JavaScript in a slightly more in-depth (although not always accessible) way (recursion, object-orientated approaches).

The two complement each other but also have a lot of crossover on the basic features of JS.

Noticed a few typos in the kindle edition.
