4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent next step, 20 April 2011
This review is from: JavaScript Cookbook (Paperback)
Definitely not for an absolute beginner. Not because it is written in a hard-to-understand way because it certainly is not. It is clear and easy to read. You just need to have the basic principles of JavaScript clear before you start this book.

Once you have the basics straight this book allows you to explore, in manageable chunks, new areas of JavaScript with immediate practical uses. You will learn better if you can see the point of what you are trying to do and with this book that's the main emphasis.

Highly recommended for someone who can write a basic script but who wants to make the step up to major projects without the stress of starting a major project of your own and getting confused. It will probably then stay useful by being a reference book when you come across things you can't do in the future.

I only dropped the rating to a four because some of what is mentioned is not really viable yet and sometimes it's not totally clear why the author chose what to cover. What is in the book is mostly superb and well-written.
