JavaScript: The Definitive Guide, 6th Edition

Whether you need an example-driven programmer’s guide or a complete desk reference, JavaScript: The Definitive Guide is the most authoritative book on the language that runs the Web. The sixth edition offers comprehensive coverage of ECMAScript 5 (the new language standard) and also the new APIs introduced in HTML5. The chapters on functions and classes have been completely rewritten and updated to match current best practices. A new chapter covers language extensions and subsets.

JavaScript: The Definitive Guide is organized into four sections:

  • Learn the core JavaScript language in detail — ideal for newcomers as well as experienced JavaScript programmers who want to sharpen their skills
  • Understand the scripting environment provided by web browsers with broad and deep coverage of client-side JavaScript illustrated by many sophisticated examples
  • Get a complete reference for core JavaScript that documents every class, object, constructor, method, function, property, and constant
  • Consult a separate reference to client-side JavaScript, including legacy web browser APIs, the standard Level 2 DOM API, the XMLHttpRequest object, and the canvas tag

“A must-have reference for expert JavaScript programmers…well-organized and detailed.”
–Brendan Eich, creator of JavaScript, CTO of Mozilla

“I made a career of what I learned from JavaScript: The Definitive Guide.”
— Andrew Hedges, Tapulous

“The Definitive Guide taught me JavaScript.”
–Tom Robinson, co-founder of 280 North, co-creator of Cappuccino
