JavaScript: The Good Parts 6th Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.270

In JavaScript: The Good Parts, Douglas Crockford identifies and highlights a whole set of good ideas that make JavaScript a great object-oriented language for programming.

Summary Of The Book

JavaScript, like all other programming languages, has its positives and negatives. Unfortunately, this language was developed and released hurriedly, before it could be refined, and hence there are quite a few drawbacks. JavaScript: The Good Parts focuses on the good parts of JavaScript, and reveals those parts that make the language more readable, reliable, and maintainable. The language as a whole does have its drawbacks, but the author does away with those bad features, and presents an effective subset of JavaScript that can be used to create an efficient and extensible code. Crockford, very effectively, shows readers the elegant side of this flawed, but popular language.

The book is meant for all those who develop sites or applications for the web. Divided into 10 chapters, JavaScript: The Good Parts begins with an overview of the ‘good parts’ of the language. The chapters present in the book include Functions, Inheritance, Objects, Arrays, Methods, Regular Expressions, Style, and Beautiful Features. These are followed by the drawbacks of JavaScript, which are included in the 5 Appendices titled Awful Parts, Bad Parts, Syntax Diagrams, JSON, and JSLint.

The book shows us that JavaScript is a highly expressive, elegant, and lightweight language, which can be used for effective coding. JavaScript: The Good Parts is focussed on making sure the user can discover a highly useful and simple language.

More than meets the eye

There is an impression that JavaScript is a silly language because anyone can write an onmouseover=myFunc() HTML snippet.

But the author shows you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. To quote him, "JavaScript is Lisp in C's clothing". It is a language rich with functional programming features. If you don't know what a "closure" is, get this book.

It's no perfect language, but Crockford shows you how to use the gem of a language that is hidden inside JavaScript spec.

Excellent Resource to Master a misunderstood Gem called "Javascript"

If you expect this book to tell you everything there is in JavaScript, then look elsewhere. This book is a compact form of only the most elegant, beautiful and good parts of JavaScript. Its quite unbelievably compact yet maintains the sense of usefulness. The topics covered would help an intermediate or an expect become a "Guru" of JavaScript. The "railroad" diagrams used in this book truly explain the concepts very well. This book also has the best reference for the "JSLint" tool. All in all "Douglas Crocford" has done an excellent job at helping improve the JavaScript programmer in me by emphasizing using the
"Good Parts" and avoiding the "Bad Ones".

The Beauty of JavaScript

First some praise for the book:

Before buying this book, I had read a lot of reference material on JavaScript and most of them made sense to me. Coming from C, Java my perspective towards JavaScript was from the procedural and object oriented paradigm. This book showed me something else - the beauty in the language. Douglas Crockford has extracted the best part of the language and presented it in a way that makes sense. (BTW I love the appendix section of Awful Parts, Bad Parts and also the reference to the JSLint). Highly recommended for day-to-day JavaScript folks.

Who this book is for:

According to me, this book is for someone who has done good amount of programming in other languages or have already tried a hand with JavaScript (and have failed to see its beauty, someone like me!). If you have good understanding of OO programming languages (not just inheritance, polymorphism etc. but other principles as well), this book will make sense to you.

Who this book is not for:

This book is not for beginners, people who are looking for complete JavaScript reference (try "JavaScript The Definitve Guide" or "Professional JavaScript for Web Developers" instead). Also if you are new to the programming landscape and want to start with JavaScript you can check out "Eloquent JavaScript".

Not for the newbie

Tried your hand at a bit of jQuery and want to be a Javascript Ninja? This book is not for you yet. Get your hands dirty with a bit of native javascript coding. Read the eloquent javascript (free ebook available) First understand how javascript is a complete programmiong language in itself yet very different from others. Definitely a good book but not simple to understand always

Must Have JS Book

"This book is small, but dense."

If you're into JS you MUST read this book irrespective of your proficiency level. At this cost, this book is a great deal.

If you want a complete JS reference, this is not it. This is just to tell you what the good parts and what could be avoided.
