JavaScript: Pocket Reference (English) 3rd Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.149

JavaScript is the ubiquitous programming language of the Web, and for more than 15 years, JavaScript: The Definitive Guide has been the bible of JavaScript programmers around the world. This book is an all-new excerpt of The Definitive Guide, collecting the essential parts of that hefty volume into this slim yet dense pocket reference.

The first 9 chapters document the latest version (ECMAScript 5) of the core JavaScript language, covering:
  • Types, values, and variables
  • Operators, expressions, and statements
  • Objects and arrays
  • Functions and classes

The next 5 chapters document the fundamental APIs for using JavaScript with HTML5 and explain how to:
  • Interact with web browser windows
  • Script HTML documents and document elements
  • Modify and apply CSS styles and classes
  • Respond to user input events
  • Communicate with web servers
  • Store data locally on the user's computer
  • This book is a perfect companion to jQuery Pocket Reference.

Explains the essentials of JavaScript & ECMAScript 5 in less than 300 pages

JavaScript Pocket Reference isn't really a dictionary styled reference that I imagined it to be. This book reads more like a O???Reilly book in the Nutshell series than a Reference. It should have been called JavaScript in a Nutshell for this is a distilled & condensed version of the author's immensely popular JavaScript: The Definitive Guide. It is however a well-written book that covers the important parts of JavaScript and the essentials of ECMAScript 5 in less than 300 pages.

It is however a well-written book that covers the important parts of JavaScript and the essentials of ECMAScript 5 in less than 300 pages.

This book is like a quick tour of the modern-day JavaScript landscape by an expert guide. The author fills the discourse with interesting facts:
Division by zero is not an error in JavaScript: it simply returns infinity or negative infinity.
...and explains relevant details concisely:
"use strict" does not involve any JavaScript keywords: it is simply a JavaScript string literal expression, and is ignored by ECMAScript 3 interpreters. When placed at the beginning of a script or of a function body, however, it has special meaning to an ECMAScript 5 interpreter.

This is a book that serious JavaScript developers should have handy so that they don't have to be distracted jumping off to look up things in online references.

This review is based on the ebook I received through the O'Reilly Blogger Review Program

JavaScript pocket

This book is an awesome book, covers almost all topics of Javascript. It should be read by everyone who is a developer. Language is easy and explanations are simply great. Developers must read it as JavaScript is going to be a next big thing in near future as we all know HTML5 is already on its way to dominate every technology,
