The only book drawback could be that it's not intended for absolute beginners, although it's well written and accessible.
And it is, but it's jam-packed with Good Stuff.
If you're somebody who's picked up JS as you went along and learned to hate it as you went, this is the book that will show you a beautiful, powerful, and remarkably flexible language with no shortcomings that can't be worked around.
This book is not necessarily going to be an easy read, even for professionals. Crockford says so himself in the preface. It's dense and terse. By necessity it introduces terms that might be confusing at first, and which are only explained later. You have to read the whole book, patiently waiting for certain concepts to be explained, and for things to fall into place. On a re-read it all begins to make real sense. I do recommend that this book is read at least twice, preferrably three times. At least it's short!
This is an important book. Crockford writes with the authority, seriousness and simplicity of K&R.Read more ›
If you are coming from a type-safe OO language such as C#, you'll get frustrated pretty quickly!
