About the book:

When Peachpit Press released the debut edition of JavaScript for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide, it immediately became one of the most useful tools for busy Web developers. Now in its fourth edition, this book has been improved, expanded, and more finely tuned. Written for Web coders who have at least some familiarity with HTML, the book doesn't necessarily require you to have knowledge of JavaScript programming or scripting. The presentation is illustrative and productive, and concepts are introduced via practical examples, explained briefly, presented in code, and then explained line by line. Using judicious screen shots and new code highlighted in red, the authors have made JavaScriptquite intuitive. In this new edition, they point out features compatible with only certain Web browsers using new IE and Netscape icons. Along with its core content, the text includes an excellent genealogy of the various flavours of JavaScript, complete with an extensive object flowchart that is colour coded by browser version. It also steps outside the base language with a chapter on visual development tools that use JavaScript, such as Dreamweaver, GoLive, and Fireworks. There are tons of useful scripts in the book, and the publisher provides a companion Web where you can get each script, as well as an interface for viewing the code in action. You can download all of the scripts in a single ZIP file. This is simply a must-have guide to JavaScript. --Stephen W Plain
