Book summary

Known for his books on programming Macintosh computers with HyperCard, Danny Goodman takes on the task of explaining another free, easy-to-use "volks-language" to the computer community. Goodman explains everything from how to get set up for JavaScript programming to how to create complicated programs and includes an outstanding outline-based table of contents that uses frames. He also includes an excellent sample order form that many business sites will be able to use. All of these goodies are on the companion CD-ROM.

A substantial section of JavaScript Bible is dedicated as a reference to the methods and properties of all the JavaScript 1.1 objects. The reference also details operators, keywords, and other pieces of JavaScript syntax. This section is followed by an excellent debugging guide, which includes a list of JavaScript interpreter error messages with explanations of their meanings. You'll also find a better-than- average discussion of cookies and how to make them do your bidding. This book covers a lot of ground while avoiding any hint of a lofty, flip, or condescending tone.
