This book makes JavaScript essentials easy. Bestselling author John Pollock provides a new edition of his hands-on, step-by-step tutorial, covering the newest features in JavaScript 2.0, including new 'type' attributes and values, use of external 'unobtrusive' scripts, the seven new Array methods, and more. All of the code in the book is completely revised to use XHTML Transitional, rather than the old capitalized HTML style, and new coverage of Firefox is included. The book now features the new and improved A Beginner's Guide style.

Fairly readable, though I wished it had been a bit more concise. It's probably more suitable to a beginner in programming, as it avoids bogging you down in pedantic detail, but it does a fairly good coverage of all parts of JavaScript. There was a section, and parts of sections that I feel have been included in list for just to be complete, but providing no real explanation, and no real value, as this material, if you would ever use it, is all online. If you've already read a few Javascript books, don't read this one; read Crockford or Flanagan instead.
