      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Starting my career with this

    Im a front end web developer, i use jQuery n js scripts everyday. I bought this book speacial to create my own JS files and app. I just started reading it. and found that its quite interesting. It covers from basic to intermediate level. Its the fatest javascript book.

    But I think its best for who is starting in JavaScript and want dive into HTML5 :) I can finally say, after geting lots of JS books, I found what I wanted.

    I even got JavaScript: The Good Parts, but its not for beginners.

    The Javascript Bible

    I have read all the popular Javascript books, and this one is best by far. Most javascript books teach you enough to write a few lines in pure javascript before invariably falling back to jQuery library. This book teaches you enough so that you can write your own jQuery like library. Of course, you need to look into the source code of Gecko and webkit to do some real work, but that is a given anyway.
