Book Review: Essential JavaScript Design Patterns For Beginners

This book is available for free here.  I'd first take the time to read Javascript: The Good Parts.  The design patterns in this books are not all named to match the names in the Gang Of Four design patterns book (such as flyweight and builder), so don't use the patterns in this book in a job interview and expect to get hired.  But, I had a few AHA moments, especially when I read the section about the Revealing Module Pattern, which is the first useful implementation of hidden methods inside of an object that can't be seen from outside of that object (private methods and fields.

This is an important read for anybody using Javascript professionally.
