View Full Version : Intermediate to Advanced JavaScript Book Recommendation

11-19-2012, 07:02 PM

I'm looking for book recommendations for intermediate to advanced JavaScript.

What I'm looking for is general best practices for larger applications, Object Oriented JavaScript, etc.

I know there are a lot of online resources for this kind of thing, but I find that I learn better from books, and sometimes it's hard to find reliable, up to date information.

I would recommend

JavaScript: The Definitive Guide by David Flanagan
(2011 edition).

All advice is supplied packaged by intellectual weight, and not by volume. Contents may settle slightly in transit.
