Title: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: David Flanagan
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Very thorough, detailed, and complete

This book contains just about every obscure detail about JavaScript that you could possibly want. From its history, syntax, structure, operators, object hierarchy, methods, properties, etc..This book has what you're looking for.
All of the tools available to you in order to spice up your webpages are thoroughly documented in this book. Once you go through this book, you'll know the ins and outs of anything related to client-side JavaScript.
However, I wouldn't recommend this book to the absolute newcomer to JavaScript, especially one with no prior programming experience. Try something like JavaScript Goodies as an introduction. Once you're ready for all the nitty gritty details and to learn about JavaScript's complete (client-side) capabilities, this is what you're looking for. And of course, if you're interested in learning JavaScript, you should be comfortable with HTML.

QED is a dippy process

Physics at the " Oh, Golly!" level... So why do I go bck to this book almost as much as Pauli's Relativity? I suppose it is his neat process graphs or his homey style? The neutron decay beta process: d(-1/3)-> u(2/3)+W(-1); W(-1)->e(-1)+v(0) Even looks good until you start adding up the masses! If nonlinear renormalization is a dippy process, then so is QED.

Fantastic book to learn C#

If you're only going to buy one C# book, make this the one. While other books are good, this one is better. The material is covered in a professional manner, but what's more important is the way the author gives real-world explanations for everything. He goes beyond the obvious to give make it real and relate it to everyday development.
Of special interest to me were the chapters on delegates and multithreaded programming. What the heck are delegates anyway? Read the book and find out--the explanation is great. Multithreaded programming is important for many situations. This chapter rates high because you can read it and immediately do it, not then have to figure out stuff that wasn't mentioned.
My copy is now dog-eared, I read it almost every day as I myself become competent in C#

Another (effective) way to teach

This book was awesome, one of the best i ever read. It says the same things of a miriad of other books, but in a exceptional way, simply, fast, correct.You'll be sing the stl in the first chapter, no mixed c/c++ programming here, only true c++.This book is small, but trust me it has all you need to start really using c++, no stupid example, no stupid code, every single page is filled with usefull information.Absolutely a must have.
