    I strongly recommend the already cited Wilton book. That is still the best beginner book I have seen.

    Also very good is Jeremy Keith's DOM Scripting.
    Review at:
    DOM Scripting: Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model

    Another new one out, not for teaching, but for learning by example is:
    JavaScript Anthology : 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks

    I'd recommend DOM Scripting if you have no programming experience.

    DOM Scripting is indeed a winner. And even though the title, "DOM Scripting" might sound advanced, it does suit a beginner.
    Keith makes sure to reiterate a previous explanation, when he takes you from statement to statement while building up to a a complete script, so that he doesn't leave you behind with what he's doing ( as an experienced programmer, it gets tedious for me sometimes, but it doesn't lead to any less of an opinion of the book.)
