JavaScript: The Definitive Guide: Activate Your Web Pages (Definitive Guides)

JavaScript: The Definitive Guide: Activate Your Web Pages

This book was great!

For warning it is very long (something like over 1000 pages) though not including the function references the chapters come to about 750 pages.

It is very intuitive and in-depth with the language of JavaScript and even includes a complete chapter about jQuery which covers pretty much the entire jQuery library.

This is the book I would recommend most for getting nitty gritty with JavaScript. It has step-by-step examples and as I said a complete reference of the JavaScript functions and methods.

How to make prototypes (not to be confused with the Prototypejs Framework which uses JavaScripts prototypes to use JavaScript in a Object Oriented Programming way) and much, much more.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Learning Perl, 5th Edition

Learning Perl, 5th Edition

After reading this book I have found it quite easy to start picking up the basics of Perl which as ugly as the language might be I am finding to be quite powerful. Of course if you already program in Perl then you already know this.

The book focus on the basics to get you started and has great footnotes. It is a rather small book which not including the Appendices is only about 240 pages. So if you are interested in learning Perl I do find this book to be a great place to start.
