JavaScript: The Good Parts (English) 1 Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 325

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.

A very good book on JavaScript

The author is great. Being his student was a wonderful experience.
His book writing style is great. Focused on the essential. Hence if you need a quick start on JavaScript this is the book to go to. Only precondition is that you already are familiar with programming.

The One Stop shop for Starters and Intermediates

Even though I had been working in Web Development for quite few years, the use of big frameworks and simply put, JQuery, just minimised the use of the beautiful core Javascript.

Author Douglas takes Javascript out of its shell and presents it beautifully and very much understandable.

Perfect book for understanding right ways to do Javascript

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who has started learning Object Oriented Javascript. You need to know what are correct ways to write the code cuz there are so many ways to accomplish the same task in javascript. This book will help you write effective coding.

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 emp

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:

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.

A mistake in this book

Well.. actually this book is says that it is not for beginners(as written in its preface para-3) but as far as i think this book is for beginners...

everyone says this book is compact but it is dense... i mean it have a lot information... but as i was reading this book i pointed out a mistake in the code written by the author....

The mistake is on page no.28, under the heading of THE METHOD INVOCATION PATTER

the code is:

var myObject = {
value : 0;
increment : function ( inc ){
this.value += typeof inc ==='number' ? inc:1;
}
} ;

Author Douglas takes Javascript out of its shell and presents it beautifully and very much understandable.

Must buy for starters and intermediates. For advanced users, try Javascript Design Patterns by Addy Osmani. You will love it.

And to my surprise, after ordering it at 7:30 in the morning, the book was delivered to my address at 18:30.
Awesome Flipkart!
