This week, Slashdot published a review of  Eloquent JavaScript: a Modern Introduction To Programming, a No Starch Press title available on Safari Books Online.

Michael Ross writes:

“Of all the computer programming languages, JavaScript may be enjoying the most unprecedented renaissance ever. Once derided as a toy language suitable only for spawning bothersome popups in browser windows, JavaScript is rapidly developing into a first-choice web technology on both the client side and the server side. One way to get started learning this ubiquitous language is the book Eloquent JavaScript: A Modern Introduction to Programming.”
