3.0 von 5 Sternen Thorough tech reference
This book is a very complete reference for the Javascript languge. It pays particular attention to the incompatibilities that plague the different interpreters/browsers.

This book is a very complete reference for the Javascript languge. It pays particular attention to the incompatibilities that plague the different interpreters/browsers. The book is fairly well written; it doesn't cause your eyes to glaze over from jargon overload. However, it also sometimes underestimates the skill and experience of the targetted reader, IMHO. Considering that this language is predominantly used for scripting web sites, I expected something a little different: more concentration on application and examples and less repetition of fundamental programming concepts and definitions.
Still, this book does a good job at cataloging the syntax and features of the language. It will probably be a very helpful book for people who are new to programming and want to learn a scripting language.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Thorough guide with good reference, 6. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
This book is not for users new to writing code. However, if you have some programming experience, you will find this an excellent source to improve and learn about JavaScript. About half of the book details how the objects, functions and events work in the language. There are some good examples of code in this section but it is mostly reading. The second half of the book is a solid reference section covering everything you could want to know. My only complaint is that the reference section shows the syntax for a JavaScript keyword but it doesn't give many examples of thier use. This can result in bad code because of a slight syntax error due to misunderstanding. However, that's only a minor complaint. The reference section is solid and detailed. There may be a better JavaScript book than this, but I haven't seen it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The best Javascript reference, 27. April 2000
Von 
Mike Christie (Cold Spring Harbor, NY, USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
This is the best Javascript reference available.
The book is divided into three sections. The first covers "Core Javascript", defining the language itself with only occasional references to how you might use it in a browser. This initially seemed to me to be a roundabout way to approach the language--why wouldn't you want to explain it by examples in a web page? However, after becoming more familiar with the language I think it was absolutely the right decision, since it avoids confusing the document object model (see below for more about that) with the language itself, a confusion common among beginners.
At the end of the first section (which developers experienced in other languages can skim, but shouldn't skip) you know what Javascript code looks like and how to do assignments, define functions, and so on. The second section, "Client-side Javascript", is where examples start to show up that you can really run in a test page of your own. The examples are good and there are plenty of them.
The heart of the second section is the discussion of the document object model. After some introductory discussion, covering windows and frames and some of the more common Javascript tasks, there's an overview of the DOM. Subsequent chapters cover it in more detail. This organization makes it pretty easy to find what you need without even resorting to the index. For example, I find the forms chapter, and the chapter on how to use cookies to save state, to be very useful, and easy to find information in.
Finally, there's a reference section at the back. This is the most valuable section once you're well on your way with the language, and is what I now use most of all. It's comprehensive and clearly written.
The book does have one weakness, which has been noted by other reviewers here: it doesn't have a "cookbook" section, showing you how to do common tasks with Javascript. This is a serious omission because of the nature of Javascript usage. Very often a webmaster for a small non-profit or a small business will decide they want to do a rollover, or add an alert for form validation failures, or something similar. Users like this need something equivalent to the "Perl Cookbook"; a "How to . . ." section that gives you an example close to what you need.
Despite this caveat, however, this is still the best book around: an excellent reference, and a great way to learn the language.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Third Edition Really Brings It All Together, 3. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
I am impressed with the Third Edition. The design of this book is clear and intuitive. While the first half of the book isn't the greatest tutorial for beginners, it's a fine overview of the language that can jumpstart anyone with any programming skills at all. A few things kept me from giving it five stars. First, the book has a section on how to make your scripts backward-compatible (testing of the "appName" property and so on), but it barely mentions object detection (page 345), which is not only backward-compatible, but forward-compatible as well (if I could have replaced all the examples that use code similar to "if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Mozilla/4')" with code like "if (document.layers)" I would be much happier). Second, this book tends to shortchange JavaScript's control of style properties: the "display" property isn't even mentioned, and while Navigator's layers get attention, IE4's comparable ability to work with DIVs is relegated to a short entry for the document.all array on page 470 (actually there is no mention of DIVs and no sample code -- I learned about it by reading Danny Goodman's JavaScript Bible, which has good info on this stuff under "Collections"). Danny is doing a "Dynamic HTML Reference" for O'Reilly, which might fill in the gaps in this book. This book isn't definitive, but it's still good -- Chapter 8 especially taught me some OOP stuff that I never had a chance to read about before.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow - THE best Javascript book available!, 23. August 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
I purchased the Netscape One Developer's Guide thinking it would provide answers to my Javascript questions - it answered very few, unfortunately. The 'Guide' doesn't begin to approach the ease of use, thoroughness or amount of information contained in "Javascript: The Definitive Guide". Javascript is as completely covered as it can be (with the free-flowing nature of WWW specifications, its hard to keep track of all the changes). I found the descriptions and examples informative, clear and concise and kinda fun sometimes. The layed back nature of the writing won't scare off novice coders/web developers and yet doesn't turn off more advanced developers. The book is cut in half - the first provides an introduction into Javascript and discusses its more important subjects while the second is a complete reference section for Javascript 1.2. It specifically treats the differences between Netscape and Internet Explorer whereas the Netscape One guide left that up to the reader to figure out - an oversight which relegates the Netscape One Developer's Handbook to the dusty bookshelf (way in the back). If you're doing web development and need to use Javascript - this is probably the only book you'll need. If you're doing web development and you're not using Javascript - you NEED this book - it will show you what you can do with simple client-side scripts.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I liked the previous edition better!, 8. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
A dog-eared copy of Edition 2 sits on my desk alongside the new one. I find the writing to be clear and concise. However, the new edition shows how the frenetic pace of the development cycle takes a toll on content.
Specifically, there are inaccuracies in the book and places where it's incomplete. For example, In Chapter 13: Windows and Frames, the discussion of Timeouts and Intervals has this to say:
"The setTimeout() method is commonly used...to animate some kind of message in the status bar of the browser. In general, animations involving the status bar are gaudy and you should shun them!"
I don't need specious comments on the merits (or demerits) of status bar animations, but I do want information about the return value of the setInterval() method. I had to search on Netscape to find the answer I was looking for.
My other complaint is that Internet Explorer's implementation of JavaScript is poorly documented. The authors justify this by the simple expedient of declaring Navigator as the Default JavaScript interpreter.
I need to script for both browsers, however much I may like Netscape Navigator.
To conclude, I have the highest regard for the author, and I do recommend this book. But there are bugs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very thorough, detailed, and complete, 17. Juli 2000
Von 
Tony (Fullerton, CA United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
This book contains just about every obscure detail about JavaScript that you could possibly want. From its history, syntax, structure, operators, object hierarchy, methods, properties, etc..This book has what you're looking for.
All of the tools available to you in order to spice up your webpages are thoroughly documented in this book. Once you go through this book, you'll know the ins and outs of anything related to client-side JavaScript.
However, I wouldn't recommend this book to the absolute newcomer to JavaScript, especially one with no prior programming experience. Try something like JavaScript Goodies as an introduction. Once you're ready for all the nitty gritty details and to learn about JavaScript's complete (client-side) capabilities, this is what you're looking for. And of course, if you're interested in learning JavaScript, you should be comfortable with HTML.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not for beginners, 24. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
I am pretty new to JavaScript and so I decided to buy three book to get me started: this one, the Visual Quickstart Guide by Peachpit Press and The official Netscape JavaScript Guide.
I started with the Visual Quickstart Guide to get a basic understanding of JavaScript but soon noticed that I was just copying the scripts in the book and didn't really learn any JavaScript. This is where the Netscape Guide came into play. It took me through everything step by step and I am now able to actually programm my own stuff. I use THIS book mainly to learn the stuff the previous two books didn't cover and also as a reference, one of the really big plusses of the book. Half of the book consists of a reference that lists all the objects, properties, even-handlers and whatnot. Just amazing, has helped me numerous times!
I cannot recommend this book for absolute beginners though. It just doesn't take you through the process of learning step by step.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The K&R of Javascript, 24. Dezember 1999
Von 
J. Esteban (Lakewood, CO USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
The book has a very good introduction to the core of client side javascript. It is a great reference for coming back to those things that you get kind of rusty on like "regular expressions" and "creating your own objects". The rest of the book is an incredibly comprehensive reference which goes into considerable detail. It's the kind of detail that a compiler manual goes into. I would prefer a version with indexes like a study bible. If you read most of this book you wont have to go around copying other peoples code snippets because you'll be to busy making up your own scripting libraries. I wish that this author would add about 300 pages on Server Side JScripting and Active Server Pages. I'm sure he could take the magic out of it in a way that most programmers could pickup in a matter of hours.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent syntax; Low examples, 29. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
I agree with many of the writers so far. I find that the book is an excellent reference and a great way to learn javascript functions and methods.
However, the lack of examples hurts the book tremendously and often prevents the reader from applying what they learn to real world examples. Nonetheless, I find myself going back to this book over and over again to solve my javascript problems because it is a great reference.
As for the cover, don't judge a book . . . Once it is opened you don't see the cover anymore. As a philosophical aside, it is this type of logic that keep people from understanding those that are different than themselves.
Overall, I have enjoyed this book and continue to use it today.
I would like thicker pages though so that my highliter doesn't show up on the other side.
