I, too, would have preferred a 'Perl Cookbook' or 'Numerical Recipes' style book. Granted, this would have put it out of reach of beginners, but it would have filled a hole in the current selection of advanced Javascript texts. The book covers a number of sample applications with snippets of general explaination sprinkled throughout. Most of the commentary is specific to the applications, though. And it concentrates on how the code works not why particular choices were made in the coding. The general explainations are kinda basic - how nested loops work, how to use eval(), avoiding multiple document.write() calls using variables. And they avoid important issues related to those topics - that the eval() function requires a lot of overhead so using array notation to access members of collections should be used whenever possible and single document.write() calls aren't only pretty but can prevent applications from crashing in particular circumstances.
Chapter 6 covers javascript source files (external .js files). I would have liked to see more coverage because they allow code to be cached and reused and they allow greater maintainability of existing applications. The presented libraries themselves leave a bit to be desired. cookies.js is a standard but others such as frames.js and arrays.js are a bit skimpy - I've seen better on the web at places like The dhtml.js library is almost useless - show() and hide() functions only. And using the images.js library would result in the same bloated pages created by using the builtin image functions in authoring environments like Dreamweaver or GoLive. At least they could have provided a scalable, portable, easily customizable and maintainable image rollover function.
Another concern is that there is no mention of the Mozilla project (the long-awaited Netscape 5) or even of Document Object Model support in IE5. The one DHTML application sticks to 4.x functionality.
If you find the leap between a beginner book like 'Visual QuickStart: JavaScript 1.2 for the World Wide Web' and a robust reference like 'JavaScript: The Definitive Guide' too much, this book might be helpful but the few lessons in it will be quickly learned and you will soon be looking for more.

If you liked O'Reilly's PERL Cookbook, AVOID this book. Instead of helping you to code, this book dishes up complete applications which are better handled using PERL (or any other language) for CGIs.
Somehow, the editor(s) at O'Reilly missed the basic issue:
JavaScript isn't a language, but a shoehorn attempt at providing browser-side programming capabilities that may blow up easily, save for simple edit checks (including math operations).
JS requires enabled and capable browsers, and even then scripts can be problematical between browser versions and browser vendors. If you've worked in JS, you know the frustration when a property or method in one object isn't available in a seemingly similar object. More often calls between programmers mucking about in JS are along the lines of "How do you do 'x' in JS?" and not "How do you develop a website in JS?" (The answer to the later would be "Are you out of your @#!*$ mind! ")
Save your $$ and maybe O'Reilly may soon provide a robust JS cookbook.

I must say I don't understand some of you saying this book isn't what you hoped for - you certainly didn't know what you were buying. As for being an "application cookbook" this book does what it's supposed to do and does it well.
The application examples include an online test system, a slideshow/image viewer and something I found very useful, a cookie based shopping cart. Even if there isn't really a wide variety of different examples, those provided are advanced enough to show the capabilities of JavaScript at a high level, and gave me ideas on other things I could program myself, using the examples as guidelines while moving along..
My impression of the code in the book is that it is clean and hi-qual, it works w/o glitches in 4.x gen browser, which really are what you should be developing for these days.
Only gripe is the price.. a little too much maybe.. but I guess I could live with that after saving alot of work cop.. *cough* .. learning from the code in the book :)

When I received my copy of the JavaScript Cookbook, I got exactly what I was looking for - a JAVASCRIPT resource. This is a solid piece of work that not only includes practical web ready applications & code, but also provides clear and concise explanations each step of the way. I found most of these explanations to hold considerable value beyond just the scope of the particular recipe; I had no problem using them to broaden my understanding in the bigger picture of JavaScript.
I found Bradenbaugh's book quite helpful and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in expanding their bag of JS tricks with immediate applicability. (I am currently using the client-side search engine application, and have dog-eared a handful of practical JS functions in Chapter 6). However, to all those reviewers below looking to learn Perl, you might want to first read this book's title before you pick it up.

I thought this book would be the Javascript equivalent of the Perl Cookbook, but not even close. This book just doesn't serve the same purpose. It's not a bad book, but it needs to be simplified into categories. Us programmers don't need to have our hands held while we code stuff, we just need help here and there and that's what made the Perl Cookbook so good. This book just describes whole projects. Screw that.
Believe it or not, I think JavaScript for Dummies is still king for a reference when being stuck on something. Either that or rack your own brain and solve it yourself. :-)

The title is 'JavaScript Application Cookbook'. The author says he aimed to provide complete applications in JavaScript to demonstrate its power and in my opinion, he has done this extremely well.
If you don't quite have the time to try and build entire applications, or would like to use cross-browser JavaScript to its fullest extent, then this book is highly recommended - kudos to the author. If you're looking for a JScript reference, stick with JavaScript : The Definitive Reference by David Flanagan or the JavaScript Bible by Danny Goodman.

Let me preface this by saying that I know squat (a little less than squat, actually) about Perl. Period. As a matter of fact, I'm a Java newbie. BUT, Jerry's book HAS given me the ability to quickly integrate Java Script into websites, while explaining me the basic / essential underlying functionality. It's a great tutorial for someone at my level, and for my uses, this book is GREAT!
The only thing that kept me from going to 5 stars is that I WANT MORE (yes, I am greedy). If there were a vol. 2, I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

I definately stress that you have some experience with Java script before diving into this book but it is by far one of the best intros I've read. This book guides you through semi-complicated to very complex application designs that would be useful for any web site. The coments on the code are clear and pretty much line by line explainations. This book will be exceptionally useful to the user wanting to refine his/her Java script skills in regards to the web. Its books like this that make O'Reilly what they are.

I too expected something modeled after The Perl Cookbook, which provides coded solutions to common problems. While the JavaScript Application Cookbook ("Application" wasn't in the title when I preordered it!) does show the power of JavaScript as a programming language, it is not, in my view, nearly as useful as The Perl Cookbook, so if that's what you were looking for, you'll probably be disappointed as well.

The prior reviewer didn't review the book so much as Javascript itself. While I can appreciate that he/she likes Perl better, saying that while reviewing a Javascript book is silly.
This is a decent book, on the order of the Perl Cookbook. 'Nuff said.
