great great book


Great book. Can't believe how much work was put into it. Seems to have a usefull, concise example for every problem I've encountered. Useful as a reference as well. I wish more technology books were like this. Book is appropriate for beginners and experts alike!

So weak and yet so strong


Yes, this book does not focus on IE well and it should have more examples. The conceptual part is also weak and some of the treatment is too long. Yet it is the best Javascript book you can find in the market and the one where you will most of the answers. The more you use it, the more you will learn to appreciate it. If you do Javascript, you must simply have this book.

A fair read


This book is a good effort at condensing and organizing the material it presents. However, it suffers from some (apparantly) typographical errors, some of which create substantive confusion (such as giving an incorrect address for one of the COM ports in one of its tables). The CD in my copy did not have, or could not find, the executable module for the Quicklearn game. I didn't spend much time looking for it, as the other material was easily accessible.
The author's organization is clear, well-planned, and logical and does help the reader stay focused on the objectives. The writing style was smooth and enjoyable to spend long stretches with. Mr. Gilster's community college instructor background comes through in his assessment-content-practice test format for each chapter. It's a sound pedagological basis for teaching this type of material.
In sum, it seems to be a better bet for those with some inital background and experience rather than for a complete novice looking for a one-stop shop to get their A+ knowledge.

Best book on practice of programming....


I want to Tell that I have never read a programming learning book as good as this.. I had never understood how pointers worked, if this book taught me pointers, it had to be good... Now I'm searching a book on building C like this, I hope Steve is preparing one....
