Not appropriate subject matter for an audio book

I never received the text file that's intended to accompany the book. Moreover, as suspected the subject matter doesn't lend itself to an audio book. The narrator literally spells out chunks of HTML, as in "Open angle bracket D-I-V closed angle bracket. Open angle bracket U-L closed angle bracket. Open angle bracket L-I...." I'm not sure why I expected a better presentation of material, given the topic; however, this is not consumable as an audio book. Returned.

Very good information

Having the narrator read the code is a little odd, but I got used to it pretty quickly. I started using it to my advantage by pausing the book to write the code and treating the follow up like a professor answering a question. The information is solid, and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Fantastic manual to add to your library

This book doesn't bog you down with a bunch of theory. It's a straightforward approach to fundamental JavaScript concepts. It doesn't bog you down with crazy technical jargon. It tells you what a concept is, what it does, and how to apply it. Very helpful style of learning!

Buy this book

This book and this series are a great introduction to the concepts of JavaScript. You will not be a professional JavaScript coder after listening to this book, but you WILL understand the concepts and how to perform the functions. Enrolling in a code camp after completing this series would bridge the gap between amateur and professional.

Thank you

I like the book, everyone raves about it for good reason. I found the narrator really annoying but pushed through it - very useful and highly recommended.

Best chapters....

The author covers a topic per chapter and follows up with detailed examples of the topic in question. Not too much, not too little, and explained with relatable examples. Great follow up to the first book in the series!
