I must say that I have no idea what the author is on about half the time.

Poorly laid out and evenly more poorly written. She has set about writing this book with a truly scatter gun approach, delving into areas with what sometimes feels like the sole intention of confusing the reader.

In the authors defence I am an absolute newbie at Javascript so some confusion should be expected. I am now working my way through the book slowly writing down the important bits in order to piece it all together into something that makes sense.

No doubt I will buying another book on this subject. If anybody can suggest a text that introduces the key concepts with brevity and in clear English please, please, please let me know!!!

Format: Paperback
I bought the book a while ago because I wanted to learn JavaScript. The book is good for beginners, or those who want to revise the very basics, but that is all I feel it is good for.

The book goes in to lots of detail, and explains each line of code with a bit of background history here and there. It will reference previous chapters when you move on through the book, just to give you a reminder, and also tells you that it will go on to explain more later in the book.

Overall, I think its great for starting out. You may need to read the book through a few times though, and keep jumping back to re-read previous chapters.
