Worth....best book

This book is very long and can seem quite overwhelming to start, however it takes you through the process very smoothly at a good pace, and gives exercises along the way to enhance the learning. The screenshots help understand each process better and I like the fact there are links to all the resources you need to start coding. The history of JavaScript was an added bonus at the beginning which provides a bit of context.

Helpful book

I think this book is great. It breaks JavaScript into bite-size chunks and then gives you interactive exercises to drill what you've listened to it until you retain it. I prefer this method of listenin JavaScript to other methods I've tried online

Excellent book

Javascript is a very dark matter for me personally And i want to learn how to code. Without help it is impossible. This book is very helpful beginners guide, even tho in my eyes I'm not even a beginner. But if I understand it, people who know a little on the matter will find this listening it even more helpful. It gives fundamental details, step by step.

Helpful book....

Would you consider the audio edition of Javascript: Javascript Coding for Complete Novices, Volume 1 to be better than the print version?

I really loved both the version.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved all the examples which they have given.

Any additional comments?

Browsers are very forgiving JavaScript parser. However, lax coding style will hurt you when you shift to another environment or hand over to another developer. This is my suggestion if you are looking for a guide to practicing and learning more about JavaScript.

Javascript Coding....

Super well written by a really good author. After listening to dozens of half-assed, incomplete online "write-ups" on JavaScript that obviously are just rehashes of some other half-assed website, this book is REALLY REFRESHING. I had forgotten how nice a well-written textbook can be. And no offense, but my official language is English, so it's nice to listening to a book written in impeccable English.

worth recommending

Impressive! This is a great tutorial on Java script. It discusses the fundamentals, principles, the functions and basically just the whole idea of how to use this programming language. I knew that there were a lot of programming languages out there, but with a little bit of research I found out that Java is the simplest of them all. As a beginner, this really helped me avoid all the intricacy, and aided me to learn fast by simply using the illustration as my reference. I would recommend this to anyone who chooses Java. Really worth recommending

soo helpful

This is a perfect guidebook to learn all the ins &amp; outs of java-script programing so easily &amp; quickly. I found this helpful staff a few weeks ago when I was traveling in my cousin’s house. She suggested me to pick it up and listen through. By the help of this , I have learned about various things about this programming like : (a) its statements &amp; variables, (b) array methods, (c) loops &amp; iteration and much more. I am so impressed by listening this book because I found it really so helpful

reall great to have

Really really good book, really easy to learn for me. The author does a great job of providing sample code of each instance so you can visualize and even test it out. Short and concise. I highly recommend if you are just starting out with Javascript and Jquery. And also included some exercise for you to practice what you learn.

I wish I would have found this book first before starting my journey. It does a great job of a laying out the basics and how to transition to more advanced lines of code and how to interpret them.

awesome book

For learning any programming language, a firm basic understanding is a required foundation to becoming proficient in the language. Start from the absolute beginning, don't skip steps, and you'll be in a better position to move on to do more complex coding once you complete this book. This book is awesome for the beginning JavaScript user! Short and precise with good practices at the end of each chapter. Would recommend to anyone with no JavaScript experience. The only thing you first need is HTML/CSS basic background before using this book. If you are brand new, start with this book before going on to the larger, more expensive books
