This book starts by explaining the whole language in detail; then there is a comprehensive reference section, a general index and an index of built-in classes, properties and methods. If you are completely new to programming, and unsure about variables, functions, statements, expressions or objects, then you might want to find a gentler introduction than this. But if you already have some familiarity with programming in general and a working knowledge of HTML and CSS, then this book will be all you ever need on the subject. (Marini's book on the Document Object Model might offer some extra detail on manipulating structured documents.)
Comprehensive, well written and presented, good value.
The reference section at the end separates the W3C's DOM from the object models used in the browsers. For W3C's purist this will be just right. For less idealistic programmers this may be a bit of an annoyance.
This isn't quite a beginners guide; rather moderately experienced programmers coming from other languages will probably benefit more from this book.
Still, this is easily one of the best programming books I've ever read.
