The best book on software engineering that I have ever read

"Code Complete" is the only book that thoroughly and objectively covers every aspect of the actual coding process. It was even useful reviewing points that I had already known because he gives such good reasoning and evidence to support his statements that it helped strengthen existing convictions.

Not very helpful...

This book has alot of examples for accomplishing different tasks but was very light on explaining concepts and even syntax sometimes. My very first javascript program was to create an HTML table with dynamic content and it was quite difficult with this book. I'm not exactly sure what purpose a book like this serves unless you find a pre-written script that closely meets your needs. I recommend that you keep looking if you want a helpful javascript book. Using this book to create your own script was much too aggravating!
