Nicely Put Together


I recently finished a beginning C++ class where the textbook that was used was by Deitel and Deitel. From a beginner's perspective with some VB experience, the Deitel and Deitel book was more of a reference book than a learning guide which I wanted. I bought Ivor Horton's book and never opened the Deitel and Deitel book for the remainder of the class unless I needed to get some assignments from it. I finished with an A !

Outstanding Javascript Reference


I'm not sure why there are no other reviews of the 2nd edition of this book here, but let me rectify that now. This is an extraordinarily lucid presentation of JavaScript and its related technologies. It certainly deserves the praise it received from other reviewers (see reviews of prior edition). I've only read through chapter 12, but I've learned more from this book than three prior JavaScript texts combined. From coverage of core JavaScript to a rigorous examination of JavaScript objects and the various object models, the authors have delivered exactly what I was looking for. I've always been confused about the proper interpretation of the `this' keyword. The authors explain precisely how and why that keyword operates in different contexts and I feel totally comfortable with it now. I also have to complement the authors and editors on the quality of the writing and the accuracy of the text. The writing is tight, the code samples are well crafted and self-contained and I've only found four mistakes in 400 pages of text. In fact, I've never seen so few errors in a technical book of this size. I highly recommend this book to anyone, regardless of your level of expertise.

For Twice the Price Go Buy The CD With All 6 Books


Great Book, obvious mastery of the language (Perl, that is), and an authoritative resource. Unless you like to settle down next to a fireplace with a glass of wine and your favorite Perl book, I would seriously consider the CD. Go search for it on Amazon- "The Perl CD Bookshelf".
