JavaScript Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition, by David Flanagan; O’Reilly Media

TL;DR A useful and cheaper substitution for the 6th edition of JavaScript: The Definitive Guide, especially if you travel. This is not a javascript reference. It’s an excerpt.

From the preface:

This book is an excerpt from the more comprehensive JavaScript: The Definitive Guide… I’m hopeful that some readers will find this shorter and denser book more useful than the larger and more intimidating volume from which it came.

Deciding to purchase JavaScript Pocket Reference comes down to whether or not you own JavaScript: The Definitive Guide.

If you do own JavaScript: The Definitive Guide there are only two reasons to purchase the pocket reference:

  1. You travel
  2. You’d rather flip through 288 pages rather than 1000 pages
If you don’t own the definitive guide, buy this and save yourself $25.

I reviewed this book as an ePub on the iPad for O’Reilly’s Blogger Review Program.
