    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.
