I first bought the xhtml book from this publisher and was completely disappointed with it and quickly resold it to a second hand book shop. Then I made the mistake of getting this book. Javascript in easy steps is not a book to learn Javascript period. It covers some basic ground but not alot else. It has more fluff than actual programming content and I'm actually a little surprised that I see any good reviews here at all.

If you want to learn Javascript, get something from 'Reilly or Sitepoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good 22 Jun. 2008

This book is not best in the series. If you know another programing langugage -it is best to stay away. However, the book has a lot of examples that can help you get started. In addition, it is straight to the point, and easy to read. The applications given are more basic than in his other books, which definetly hinders in what you learn from the book. However, thats what the interent is for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not one of the better books of this series 31 Dec. 2007

I bought this book because of other books I have read in the series. In Easy Steps is quick and to the point and isnt a thousand pages. I recently took a JavaScript class and wanted to give this book as a desk reference for a classmate. All the examples are placed in message boxes which allows you to execute commands but doesnt show you how to really use JavaScript with a web page save making a pop up message box. Because Amazon didnt deliver the book in time for a gift I was able to send it back and dodge a bullet. I would recommend the JavaScript book from Visual, JavaScript: Visual Blueprint. It has a building on the fron and is around 300 pages. I would recommend other books from the In Easy Steps series but not this one.
