Book Review: Javascript: The Good Parts

I love Javascript.  It's one of my favorite programming languages.  The Author of the book, the famous Douglas Crockford, agrees with me.  In his words, Javascript is a "beautiful, elegant, lightweight and highly expressive language" buried inside of a superset of less beautiful language, scarred by the rapid growth of the world wide web.

Before you have anything bad to say about Javascript, you MUST read this book.  And before you call yourself a Javascript expert, you must read this book.  If you plan to write any Javascript, you must read this book.  Don't worry, it's only 176 pages, including the full specification of the subset of Javascript that you should consider the usable language.

Best programming book I have ever read.
