    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.

    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...

    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 ...

    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.

    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

    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.
