This book should have been sub-titled: JavaScript The Good Parts (the long version)While I was reading this, I liked to imagine that I was at university and that Douglas Crockford was the insanely popular genius professor that showed up late for lectures, and then either spoke too fast or else mumbled a lot, and then locked himself in his office refusing to answer the door during office hours while he worked on his Next Big Thing that would make everyone oooh and aaah and validate his brilliance [...]

One of the best references for beginners on learning Javascript. Nicholas C. Zakas is one of the best authors that I recommend to find his books to enjoy the obvious words from him.

I haven't read many books about programming (and about javascript) but this one is the best. It gives pretty thorough overview of javascript and how it has evolved. Also this book explaines concepts in easy language and with executable examples. Also this book gives very good tips how to achieve cross-browser compatibility (and where it is nearly impossible). It is not about become javascript master in 5-minutes, it is more about gain deeper understanding in longer period (book is over 800 pages [...]

I haven't read many programming books but this one is best so far. It is not about become javascript master in 5-minutes. No, it is about gaining deeper understanding about javascript (book has more than 800 pages). Concepts are explained easily with executable examples. Great attention is given towards making cross-browser compatible javascript. If you want to really understand something about javascript then this book is for you.

This is THE book to read for learning JavaScript, whether you are completely new to it or are familiar with basic usage but want to really learn and master the language. It's important to understand this book is written for ECMAScript5 (ES5) which arrived in 2009 and is completely supported in all browsers. Because of that, it doesn't cover ECMAScript6 (ES6) which is now being widely used as browsers are implementing it and especially when using the Babel build tool which converts ES6 to ES5.

A thorough Javascript book. Good book to learn Javascript if used in concert with the codecademy lessons. The number of examples is a bit overwhelming since they are made up of literally hundreds of small samples. You can download these but I'm not sure how useful they are as a whole. I suppose if there was one or two particular things that you wanted to dig into then it might be useful.

What an amazing book !! Probably the most in depth Javascript book ever written !!I have been reading the 3rd edition. I am blown away by the clarity and the in depth explanation of whatever topic discussed in this book.Chapter 6 on Object oriented, chapter - 10,11,12 on DOM and chapter-13 on Events are just awesome.Probably the most in depth explanation of "Events " I could found on the internet.

Solid and concise survey of JavaScript.I think the title is a bit off as the book better serves a JavaScript novice rather than a professional. Other than that I am impressed with how much this book covers. Its a wide survey with enough depth to explain the fundamentals. Just what I needed to get back into JavaScript after a ten year absence.

The first edition of this book helped me signifcantly - the second edition has significantly changed and improved the way I work in JavaScript. This second edition is NOT a reprint of the first edition at all is new material. An excellent read and an excellent resource. Thank you, Mr. Zakas !!! Highly recommended !!!

I´ve read the second edition of this book and it has been a great introduction to the advanced aspects of javascript. I've discovered better ways to deal with javascript in my web applications that I'm now putting in practice.

This is the book I'd recommend highest for JavaScript. You want to also see JavaScript Patterns and the JavaScript Cookbook is a great reference, but this book will teach you the most and covers so much on its own.

If you buy just one JavaScript reference, make it this one. I am filled with admiration that one person can write so comprehensively and authoratively on this amorphous topic.

Absolutely fantastic. Clearly written and very well explained. It's a dense book but incredibly rewarding. I now feel I have a much better handle on JavaScript and the browser ecosystem.

Easy to understand, super complete and vast information on JavaScript and how it works. Excellent for anyone that seriously wants to get into JS.

This book clarified so many different concepts and is an invaluable reference.

Albeit rather outdated, it's still a great reference for wannabe fronted web development. Don't think I've found anything even comparable.

I bought this book the day after I attended a session given by Nicholas Zakas (author) at the Velocity Conference in San Jose this year. He offered some brilliant pointers and techniques on writing Javascript code that performs well and is efficient and stable on all browsers. The book covers all aspects of Javascript in detail and approaches all subjects with an object-oriented mindset. From language basics (data types, variables, objects, functions) and event handling to the Document Object Mo [...]

I have read reviews and bought a number of other JavaScript books(the definitive guide, the good parts, etc), and this one was by far the best, in my opinion.I wont go into the others, but the reason I found this book so good is mainly the writing, it explains difficult concepts very well. It's a quite large book, but don't let that put you off, it isn't overly verbose, so even if you do have a programming background this book wont be painful to read(in my opinion the information is just right). [...]

This is great book! I read it as part of Javascript Is Sexy's How to Learn JavaScript Properly, and I'm very happy with the explanations and code examples around the book. I came out with a very practical understanding of JS and I now feel confident to build things with what I learned. Also, although I took notes from it, I'm sure it will make a great reference for later on. (It touches deeper topics and all the intricacies of cross-browser compatibility, JS versions and modes, programming best [...]

Estremamente denso di informazioni senza risultare mai pesante. Dettagliato, chiaro e preciso. A volte anche oltre il normale uso che si fa di Javascript, con informazioni utili a chi stia scrivendo un framework o un clone di analytics.Forse l'unico difetto è che, finito questo libro, vi chiederete se valga la pena leggerne altri su Javascript.Dovrei rivedere praticamente tutta la mia libreria e togliere una stella a quasi tutti gli altri manuali, per rendergli giustizia.Assolutamente consiglia [...]

I were starting read this book with thought "A better good parts" and come through whole book without change of mind. Also good addition as book to another Zakas book about optimization, but also as in another book propogandistic way to put yahoo everywhere and no a word about google tools for example. No Politics in studying is much better than farting yahoo everywhere.

I really liked it. It taught me a lot of new things about JavaScript I had never know before. I found some of the things that I was specifically looking for in my programs! This could also be a good reference book!

This book is a great reference for me because Nicholas was so thorough. I am planning on losing my other js books and keeping only this one as a desk reference.

very comprehensive book on javascript

Very comprehensive JS book. It's not only talking about javascript as a language but also explains manyfundamental knowledge and practices in web development. It's great.

Extensive Resource for JS

A very good reference, and useful if you are learning your first programming language, but otherwise somewhat redundant in an age of Google and Stack Overflow. A pity, the author has done a good job.

i'm feel excited with this book !

Chapters 1-8 where great, but the rest was plan vanilla Javascript DOM manipulation.

Good book, plan to keep it around and re-read/refer to it.
