Title: Java for the Web with Servlets, JSP, and EJB: A Developer's Guide to J2EE Solutions
Publisher: Sams
Authors: Budi Kurniawan
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
One of the Best Books I've Read

This is an authoritative guide to Java Web programing. It covers all aspects of Web development in very easy to understand chapters. It's uncanny that the author knows when to spend the whole page for a code listing and when to spend just a few lines. I was totally impressed by the author's writing style and am looking forward to other titles by the same authors.
Hint: download the free chapters before you buy to see if his approach suits you.

Title: Beginning JavaScript Second Edition
Publisher: Wrox
Authors: Paul Wilton

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Awsome examples that work.

The biggest problem these days with computer books is that usually the examples don't work when YOU try them? (usually not your fault either).
Although i did not learn javascript from this book, i'm sure it would have been a great place to start. I started my venture into javascript elsewhere and so cannot describe how it helped me start (or as it says: begin) javascript but instead i can tell you that it has helped me with 90% of my javascript problems since i bought it.
This book will allow you to code what you want, precisely for the browser(s) you want to code for. The examples are unique and usefull. There are other books that work better for a reference, this one will advance you to the next level.
To those new to programming: This book is about JAVA-SCRIPT. Not java. If you're looking for Java look elsewhere. (they are completly different). Learn about what they are and find out what you really want to learn.

Horrible, Horrible, Horrible!

What is wrong with Squaresoft?! People buy strategy guides so that they can find the information about the secrets and best way to master a game, not so they can read "If you want to know how to do this, or if you want to know what these things do, or if you want to know how to find this treasure, or if you want to see maps of a certain place, you'll have to go online to OUR website and punch in awkward keywords that addresses a server that is either down or extremely slow making it nearly impossible to find any of the information you were looking for in the first place, despite having paid money for the book" This strategy guide is nothing but pretty pictures and "codes" for finding the information you want immediately but have to slog through online. In my opinion, this is the worst strategy guide I have ever owned.

Title: Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference (2nd Edition)
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Danny Goodman
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A most excellent "definitive reference".

I started taking a serious interest in web design and development just two months ago and was overwhelmed by the storm of web technologies that hit me right up front: HTML, Dynamic HTML, JavaScript, DOM, CSS etc. This book laid a solid foundation for me. I can confidently say that I now understand how HTML, JavaScript, CSS and DOM combine to produce powerful, interactive and dynamic web pages. In fact, the coverage of JavaScript itself (in the many examples used throughout the book) was so comprehensive that I am now breezing through 'JavaScript: A Definitive Guide'. 'Dynamic HTML' by Danny GoodMan surely delivers on its promise as a definitive reference and then much more.
