1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely unreliable and poor build quality - don't buy, 30 May 2006
The item worked for a while, though it did have some usability problems. Then it failed completely within three months, will not boot up and cannot be reset using the emergency override, even though fully charged. I had previously bought one from Comet last Christmas which also quickly became unusable when the headphone socket fell out and could not be replaced, but had hoped that this was a one-off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide / reference book for experienced programmers, 19 Aug. 2002
I don't have enough knowledge of the subject independently of this book to rate its coverage in detail. I am a programmer experienced in other languages who had previously done some simple Javascript programming learnt "on the job". I found it a complete eye-opener as to the complexity and power of this deceptively simple language (i.e. not simple at all when you go below the surface). The book contains very useful and seemingly comprehensive reference material. It is written extremely clearly and well, to a standard that I have never before seen in computer manuals, and with lots of good examples. None of the tiresome jokeyness and dumbing-down shown by many US-written manuals! It could almost be nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature (of its kind, at least). The author has done a brilliant job. Full marks! I have not previously bought this publisher's books, but I will always look out for O'Reilly manuals from now on, in the hope that they will all come at least somewhere close to the standard of this book.
