  • Oh, wow, another edition of this classic book. Is it worth “upgrading” that old copy on your bookshelf?First, if you have any edition prior to the 6th edition the answer is a definitive, “Yes!” There is no question that so much has changed since 2006 which is when the 5th edition was published. JavaScript feels like a whole new language since then (not really, but significant changes in the last 14 years have happened).But, what if you have the 6th edition? What did David Flanagan change? Overall, the 7th edition comes in at 40% smaller than the 6th edition. Do you keep both? Nope. The 7th edition is much better thought through and eliminates much of the old and adds in important new things.Seven chapters on “client-side” JavaScript are condensed into one “JavaScript in Web Browsers” chapter. The topics within that chapter are a much tighter presentation of the material you need to know. If you really need to know more about JavaScript and CSS or JQuery, go look to references on these topics. Flanagan was right to trim that fat from this book.In the 6th edition, there were barely 20 pages focused on server-side JavaScript. Now there is a good chapter dedicated to “Server-Side JavaScript with Node”. Finally, he has added a whole new chapter on tools and extensions. In other words, Flanagan has caught up with how JavaScript is really used.The remaining changes are around the fundamentals. He has added information on symbols and has greatly reworked chapters on object and classes as one would expect. Modules have been split out into their own chapter. And, he has added a good “summary” section to each chapter.Overall, I think the book has been “refactored” in a good way. It is much tighter. And, certainly more relevant to modern JavaScript programming. Of course, JavaScript will continue to evolve so I expect future editions will continue. But, this edition feels like a checkpoint one should mark. I have done so and my 6th edition is being duly donated.
  • Before buying this book I had a general idea of what I was looking for. I needed something for the Beginner to Intermediate level, and I needed it to be a complete guide to the language. This book is both of those things and more. Even Advanced programmers should find something useful in this guide.If read cover to cover, the learning curve is steady but gentle. Although the text is a little dry, the author still finds time to crack a few jokes.
  • I’m a professional software engineer that uses several different languages on a regular basis including C++, C#, Python and Javascript. This book is without doubt the best one I have in my collection that focuses on Javascript.Being a busy programmer I appreciate the fact that each paragraph is loaded with useful information so I don’t have to skip over useless conversational, waste of time text.The book can certainly be read from cover to cover. It’s writing style is engaging enough. However, the immaculate organization and presentation of the chapters makes this book really shine as a reference. This is the book I go to when I need to look something up. It even replaces my previous favorite Nicholas C. Zakas excellent ‘Understanding Ecmascript 6’.I also love the short and easy to understand code samples. Again being a busy programmer I loathe having to waste time trying to decipher a weighty chunk of example code just to learn a simple feature. There’s nothing wrong with toy code examples if they get the point across.David Flanagan leaves nothing out and reaches right up to the ES2020 standard. It truly is a definitive guide to Javascript. If you buy only one Javascript book I highly recommend you get this one!
  • I first approached JS by buying Eloquent JavaScript and after few chapters I got completely demotivated in continuing studying from that book. Simple concepts were made outrageously complex whereas complex topics didn’t get the treatment they deserved. I then tried few online Udemy courses which were great but can never be as organized as a book.Then the new edition of Flanagan’s JS guide was released. This book is not an easy bedtime reading. There are tons of concepts to learn there which are often recursive in different chapters, ie you can’t really skip or change the topic sequence of the book.However I think that the author does a v good job in helping readers understating via precised and short code examples.So far this is the best book I read on the subject. It is also updated with the latest lexicon of ES6. Remember JavaScript is a living language which get regularly updated and enriched. Books which were good 5yrs ago might not be relevant today any longer. Definitely recommended to whoever is serious in learning the language.
  • Detailed and comprehensive but after a few months reading, the book binding broke and pages started falling out. Amazon replaced the book free of charge which was appreciated. But for the price, size and type of usage, O’Reilly should know by now to produce this as a hard-back book and not be such cheapskates in future.
  • Like all O’Reilly programming books, this is an ultimate source. You can’t compare this book with any other books on the market. Most books are designed for beginners. But this book not only great pleasure to learn for a beginner yet the best source when you’re working on more complex problems. Javascript is already very tricky language and if you imagine to become a senior dev in the future you should definetely get this book and absorbe what you can. This book guaranteed to give you all the information you need to be not better but a competitive Javascript Developer.
  • Definitely not for beginners or anyone not wanting to feel like having your teeth pulled. Terrible descriptive manner throughout the book with no joy in learning.Great if you want a reference on your bookcase…that you won’t use as the Internet has better and faster , not to mention more enjoyable means of reference.
  • I already own a previous edition of this book – the 3rd which was published in 1998. Because I am still, to my surprise, involved in web development and because things have evolved somewhat over the last 20+ years, I felt it was time to acquaint myself better with a more up to date text.I know there is a great deal of information online, but nothing for me beats a good book into which I can dip in and out. Really this tome cannot be bettered. It gives both the novice and the grizzled long time practitioner everything they need to progress their unceasing acquisition of knowledge…You doing JavaScript? Get this book!
  • Like joining a conversation late about people you don’t know from a place you’ve never heard of in a dialect you’re unfamiliar with.
