This is also a situation where the CD-is actually useful. The bonus chapters actually add more content to the book, instead of just adding on demo versions of software that you will never load. Since the CD contains the entire text of the book, you also have the distinct advantage of loading the PDF to your computer and searching for information you need. There isn't much in this book that is a waste of time, nor is there much else I can imagine that could be added to the book to improve it. It's truly a classic.
I found this book to be very well organized and incredibly helpful. I haven't tried reading it as a book cover to cover, and at 1200 pages (plus bonus chapters on CD) I never will. I use it as a reference and read just enough to understand what I need to do. As a result I'm coming at the book not as a novice but with enough understanding to have basic ideas of what I want to do. For this type of usage, this book is "fantastic".
The CD is awesome. There are a number of bonus chapters (one which was very useful to me...using XmlHTTPRequest), and having the entire book available as a pdf is a totally great way to do searches. Too bad the .pdf is too big to be readable on my clie.
I highly recommend this book.
That intended reader is not a battle-hardened veteran of software engineering or advanced student of computer science. People with more programming background may be disappointed by the relatively low density of the text, and by its organization. The author has created a successful organization grouping by task, but that is very different from a formal presentation of the language and standard APIs.
Decide who you are and what you want. This is a book for a specific purpose and reading population, and seems to serve those very well. If your purpose or backgorund are different, though, the organization may not meet your needs.
When I first purchased an early edition, I thought the title was a bit conceited: a "Bible", you see.
If some book of this series ever fully deserved such qualification, this can be only Mr. Goodman's book. I can't vouch for future editions, but I qualify for the past ones: this book is definitive.
For each object all the properties and methods get explained in an astonishing manner.
It is important to stress that unlike some "core" manuals (I think of some Php), these explanations are not snappy or short: they are detailed. They do not assume you can guess what they don't say by working out the rest from parsimonious and cryptic sentences as many online manuals invariably do: they employ all the words it takes to be clear and detailed.
It seems mr. Goodman has understood that in order to be terse and clear you haven't to be so short and so cryptic, but only as short as it is necessary and not a bit more - and never, never cryptic.
The new editions cover, with the highest professionality, all the new DOM related methods, and this accounts for why new editions get released: because the language is subject to huge evolutions since it got connected with the DOM.
If the latter evolves, the former has to follow, and mr. Goodman has to write more.
That is, the book _implicitly_ presumes something (but not too much): it somewhat presumes you know what a loop via a "for" cycle is, it somewhat presumes you know what an "if/else" conditional check is, and it somewhat presumes you know, more or less at least, what an array is: a collection of variables each arranged as key versus value.
It does not presume more. And it is not that it does not provide explanations for those topics at all: it is that for an _absolute_ beginner grasping the meaning of a loop can be daunting regardless of how many words you spend. This is no mr. Goodman's fault: it has been daunting for us all the first times in our lives we saw loops.
You have to chew on them on your own, with a little bit of torment and agony, and nothing, not even tons of words, could really ever bridge the gap of unfamiliarity that the first blast gives to a novice.
This is why mr Goodman, arguably, does not spend _that_ ton.
Provided you haven't such minimal knowledge yet the matter is as follows: you will have it in a few weeks finding some route of your own - we all did that way if you had no teacher as I hadn't.
I learned what loops are on mr. Jason J. Manger (1996) manual, and if you complain it is difficult to understand loops from mr. Goodman, wait to understand them via mr. Manger's work as I did!
