Since 1996, JavaScript: The Definitive Guide has been the bible for JavaScript programmers--a programmer's guide and comprehensive reference to the core language and to the client-side JavaScript APIs defined by web browsers.

The 6th edition covers HTML5 and ECMAScript 5. Many chapters have been completely rewritten to bring them in line with today's best web development practices. New chapters in this edition document jQuery and server side JavaScript. It's recommended for experienced programmers who want to learn the programming language of the Web, and for current JavaScript programmers who want to master it.

"A must-have reference for expert JavaScript programmers...well-organized and detailed."

--Brendan Eich, creator of JavaScript, CTO of Mozilla

"I made a career of what I learned from JavaScript: The Definitive Guide ."

--Andrew Hedges, Tapulous

Programmers will want to read this book. It was the first and is still the best Javascript reference book. This 6th edition is updated to cover HTML5. The 4th edition is also useful, and has a shorter queue of holds. 1000 pages.

"JavaScript, the definitive guide" picks up where "Web Design in A Nutshell" By Jennifer Niederst Robbins leaves off -- nicely. While some might say "Web Design" is now "dated" I'd retort by calling "Web Design" foundamental foundation building in an ecosystem that seems at the end 2013 open to new thinking. Both are O'Reilly publications.

O'Reilly books are meant for programmers. They are also some of the best books in the industry. Rating a book a two because you don't understand it is ridiculous.
