Amazon Review

Designing with JavaScript opens up a whole new world to Web-design artists, especially those making the leap from a print design background. Many people liken Web design to print design, but there is nothing interactive about a printed page. Web pages, however, can be completely dynamic, different from moment to moment and responsive to the reader. The best way to take advantage of this is through JavaScript.

Eleven chapters and four appendices cover the basic to the complex, from extracting and validating information using forms, to creating rotating images, to using DHTML for animation. The first half covers basic yet important issues such as an introduction to the syntax of the language, browser detection, setting up forms and controlling frames and windows. Filled with examples, screenshots and links to more examples and info, these chapters build a solid foundation for the second half of the book.

Dynamic images, rollovers, using cookies and creating interactive features using DHTML are some of the features covered later in the book, with numerous practical examples. These chapters are invaluable for the learning designer, as nearly each feature is practically required on a contemporary Web site. The appendices include a handy JavaScript guide to the language, including syntax, handlers, an object guide and style properties.

Not everything can be handled (yet) through the available WYSIWYG editors, making this book an invaluable reference and one to keep at your fingertips. --Mike Caputo


"...if you are in need of a book to get you going straight away in using JavaScript to develop your site, I suggest you take a look at this one." -- Jono Bacon, Linux Format, May 2002

Don’t let the small size fool you, however. There’s a lot of really good information packed into a book of manageable size. -- Thomas Duff, Portland Domino/Notes User Group, Dec 2002

With this book in hand and following the clear, simple, and useful examples, every web author can enhance the expressiveness of web pages. -- Terrance A. Brooks, Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, September 2002

With this book, at least, you don't have to learn everything about JavaScript just to add a couple of features to your site. -- David Gault, AK ColdFusion User, April 2, 2002
