    Javacript book

    Hi all,
    A less taxing question for you, and one that's probably been asked a million times. I did a search on the forums first so I had to resort to a new thread.

    I know all about functions, Array Access Notation, Parameters etc form learning actionscript(intermediate).
    I need to learn more about the DOM and get explained examples of javascript.
    I spotted 3 books with various reviews(Didn't help much).
    Anyone one read any of these or recommend any other good javascript/Dom/DHTML books.

    When I was looking I was told JavaScript : The Definitive Guide was the one to go for. Of course it's like 1000 pages long so I haven't read it yet. I do use it all the time for reference already though.

    I read Professional Ajax to learn Ajax. Most of what you need to know to get going is in the first 100 pages along with good examples and downloadable source. Then it has a bunch of examples of how Ajax can be used with more examples explained by the book.

    Those are the main 2 books I use at this time.

    JavaScript : The Definitive Guide...that's an O'Reilly book, right?
    Heard it's pretty intense.
    Looks good.
    Thx
