Praise for Head First JavaScript

“So practical and useful, and so well explained. This book does a great job of introducing a complete newbie to JavaScript, and it’s another testament to Head First’s teaching style. Out of the other JavaScript books, Head First JavaScript is great for learning, compared to other reference books the size of a phone book.”

Alex Lee, Student, University of Houston

“An excellent choice for the beginning JavaScript developer.”

Fletcher Moore, Web Developer & Designer, Georgia Institute of Technology

“Yet another great book in the classic ‘Head First’ style.”

TW Scannell

“JavaScript has long been the client-side engine that drives pages on the Web, but it has also long been misunderstood and misused. With Head First JavaScript, Michael Morrison gives a straightforward and easy-to-understand introduction of this language, removing any misunderstanding that ever existed and showing how to most effectively use it to enhance your web pages.”

Anthony T. Holdener III, Web applications developer, and the author of Ajax: The Definitive Guide.

“A web page has three parts—content (HTML), appearance (CSS), and behaviour (JavaScript). Head First HTML introduced the first two, and this book uses the same fun but practical approach to introduce JavaScript. The fun way in which this book introduces JavaScript and the many ways in which it reinforces the information so that you will not forget it makes this a perfect book for beginners to use to start them on the road to making their web pages interactive.”

Stephen Chapman, Owner Felgall Pty Ltd., JavaScript editor, about.com

“This is the book I’ve been looking for to recommend to my readers. It is simple enough for complete beginners but includes enough depth to be useful to more advanced users. And it makes the process of learning fun. This might just be the only JavaScript book you ever need.”

Julie L Baumler, JavaScript Editor, BellaOnline.com
