I had initially tried learning through many free sources online, and while most were very good in tackling specific issues or illustrating solutions to esoteric problems, none gave me the confidence that I was getting a solid foundation in the language, or programming in general. In search of something better, I looked to stackoverflow which constantly recommended David's book. To be honest, I pirated it first.
I know this all seems overzealous enough to border on the insincere, but for someone who always had a passion for technology and wanted to create his own, but was beginning to be deterred from it all because I thought it was simply above my grasp, I want to say thank you to David and O'Reilly.
So I have gotten used to the general writing style and layout of most of their books despite almost every book being written by a different author.
This book however, despite on the back stating "Prior Programming Experience Recommended", proceeds for most of the book explaining things that someone with prior experience should already know. Also, if you plan on reading this book in a linear fashion to learn JS and avoid missing something by skipping around in the book, you might get very frustrated like I did. The author explains subjects and gives examples and then many times right afterwards says something similar to "This example contains code or functions that will be explained in a later section.
This book doesn't get to that until almost halfway through the book Certainly something to keep on your desk or readily handy if you program in JS often.
