Index is useless

The book is pretty good for swing. The index is to general to be useful. It works better as a 'read through' book, rather than a reference book that you can use the index to look up tips. For example, if you decide to look up some uses of JDesktopPane, the index simply lists all the pages talking about JDesktopPane, it does not list any sub-headings for the topic. Other than the useless index, I like the book.

good book for novice

I bought my computer a month before ordering this book. Was familiar with Windows' other operating systems, but not XP. I am VERY pleased with this book. There are many colorful pictures, and illistrations in it. The CD wasn't very helpful, but not needed. Anyone thinking about buying this book should BUY IT NOW. I will definately give the book to my dad and let him learn about XP too.

Title: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide

Authors: David Flanagan

Just Right For My Needs!...

The introduction and core JavaScript sections of the book are well written, and manages to keep the reader's attention. It is excellent in pointing out the inconsistancies in JavaScript implementation across the various browsers and platforms. Good programming code - detailed enough to evoke thorough understanding of the topic, yet consise enough to avoid tedium. The second half of the book, the reference section is an invaluable tool for quick, detailed information about every object, property, function, and method of the core JavaScript language. Excellent book in every regard!
