Most programming languages contain good and bad parts, but JavaScript has more than its share of the bad, having been developed and released in a hurry before it could be refined. This authoritative book scrapes away these bad features to reveal a subset of JavaScript that's more reliable, readable, and maintainable than the language as a whole-a subset you can use to create truly extensible and efficient code.

Considered the JavaScript expert by many people in the development community, author Douglas Crockford identifies the abundance of good ideas that make JavaScript an outstanding object-oriented programming language-ideas such as functions, loose typing, dynamic objects, and an expressive object literal notation. Unfortunately, these good ideas are mixed in with bad and downright awful ideas, like a programming model based on global variables.

When Java applets failed, JavaScript became the language of the Web by default, making its popularity almost completely independent of its qualities as a programming language. In JavaScript: The Good Parts, Crockford finally digs through the steaming pile of good intentions and blunders to give you a detailed look at all the genuinely elegant parts of JavaScript, including: Syntax Objects Functions Inheritance Arrays Regular expressions Methods Style Beautiful features The real beauty? As you move ahead with the subset of JavaScript that this book presents, you'll also sidestep the need to unlearn all the bad parts. Of course, if you want to find out more about the bad parts and how to use them badly, simply consult any other JavaScript book.

With JavaScript: The Good Parts, you'll discover a beautiful, elegant, lightweight and highly expressive language that lets you create effective code, whether you're managing object libraries or just trying to get Ajax to run fast. If you develop sites or applications for the Web, this book is an absolute must.

    書的內容很棒,但翻譯做得蠻差的,很多字句的翻譯讓人感覺感覺十分無言,希望能夠加強翻譯品質

    东南大学的影印本上错误比较多。建议买电子书吧。整本书关注于JS这门语言本身的特性,没有覆盖BOM/DOM/Ajax等部分,对于想要打好JS基础的人会很受用

    Indispensabile per chi vuole imparare ad utilizzare questo linguaggio in modo CORRETTO. Leggendolo mi sono reso conte che da anni stavo utilizzando javascript in maniera non naturale e ne sfruttavo pochissime potenzialità. Non si esce da questo libro come programmatori senior, ma semplicemente consapevoli che il javascript è un mondo molto vasto che spesso viene mal utilizzato.
